“So, You Think You Know Wine?” Episode 3.4

WineAlign is pleased to present Episode 3.4 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.

Division “A”, Round 2

The new episode is posted and ready to go, so pour yourself a glass of wine and tune in here: Episode 3.4

In this episode, Division ‘A’ is back for Round 2. John, Will and Steve have no problem heading straight to Australia with this wine. But whose nose knows for sure what it is to score the maximum points! Watch and see.

Recap and Scorecard

In Episode 3.3, Division ‘C’ contestants David, Zoltan and Jennifer were all in the same camp on grape variety with the 2011 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc. However, it was David who picked up the most points for not letting this winemaker’s style take him away from New Zealand.

Here’s how the score sits after Episode 3.3:
