Rene Barbier Wine Tasting 101

Experienced a basic seminar on wine tasting by critically acclaimed Rene Barbier Wines.

1. CLASSIC MERLOT + TEMPRANILLO – An RB CLassic for those who love the fruity taste and soft texture of the popular Merlot grape. Combined with the toffee-ish Tempranillo grape, this vintaged wine is a delight. Aged in oak barrels, it has fruity aromas and soft touches of cherry and plums on the palate.

2. PREMIUM CABERNET SAUVIGNON AND CHARDONNAY – inspired from old world wines, RB fused the art of wine-making traditions of France and Spain, It offers a rich and powerful wine experience. It has vivid aromas because it is matured in American and French oak barrels..and has won awards in Europe and Asia.

3. CAVA – evokes the spirit of it mother company, Freixenet. Made from Macabeo, Parellada, and Xarello, this wine underwent the same exacting and rigorous techniques and methos used by the greatest Champagne and Cava brands to make a sparkling wine of impeccable quality. It is bottle-aged for almost two years, producing a clean and delicate Cava yet rich in flavour. It is crisp with an interesting floral note and mouh-pleasing sensation of creaminess.

4. PETILLANT RED [ROSE] – an elegant wine with a perfectly clear raspberry pink colour. Its fine pearly bubbles persist as foam in the glass. It has fruity aromas of strawberry and raspberry. Soft on the palate, the fruity taste is intensified by the light bubbles, making it even more refreshing
