Recap and Scorecard
In the last episode, Division ‘C’ contestants Jennifer, Zoltan and David were presented with the Tommasi Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico. Each of them identified the wine as Amarone right off the nose. The final score came down to Vintage and price.
Congratulations to Zoltan Szabo who advances to the Championship round with a total score of 21. David secured the last spot in the Wildcard episode above with 20 points and Jennifer ends her run with a total of 18 points in this high-scoring division.
There’s more to come
Season 3 showcases some of Canada’s most widely recognized, award-winning sommeliers and wine critics. WineAlign’s own David Lawrason, Sara d’Amato, Steve Thurlow and Master Sommelier John Szabo are joined and challenged by Master Sommelier Jennifer Huether, Master Sommelier Bruce Wallner, Zoltan Szabo (Sommelier at Trump Tower), William Predhomme (Sommelier at Canoe) and Bill Zacharkiw (Montreal Gazette).
Our critics have to rely on skill and talent as they use their nose, eyes and palate to identify the flavours, aromas and general characteristics of a wine to correctly determine five elements about the wine. For a wine critic, a blind taste test is the ultimate challenge.
The Championship and final round of “So, You Think You Know Wine?” will be posted on WineAlign over the coming weeks. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did making them and encourage you to share them with your friends.
