“So, You Think You Know Wine?” Episode 3.3

WineAlign is pleased to present Episode 3.3 of “So, You Think You Know Wine?”

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 palette 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.

Welcome Division “C”

The new episode is posted and ready to go, so pour yourself a glass of wine and tune in here: Episode 3.3

In this third episode, we welcome Division ‘C’. Familiar faces from last season, David Lawrason, Jennifer Heuther and Zoltan Szabo, return to test their skills against this favorite New Zealand variety. But will it be as obvious as you think?

Recap and Scorecard

In Episode 3.2, Division ‘B’ contestants Sara, Bruce and Bill were all in agreement with the grape variety in this 2010 Chateau St. Jean Chardonnay from California. However, it was Sara who picked up the most points for recognizing this as a new world wine made in an elegant old world style.

Here’s how the score sits after Episode 3.2:
