COENECOOP SIGNS FOR A GREEN SPRING (6)

Posted by Christian Callec on vrijdag, april 13th, 2012

On April 2nd, the Dutch importer COENECOOP (part of DELTA WINES) was holding a special wine tasting inside the huge Delta Wines offices, storage and distribution building. Leitmotiv of this tasting was: “Naturally more… Spring”. Most of the presented wines were… ‘green’ wines, from ‘environment respectful’ to organic (bio) and biodynamic.

As always, the organization was perfect…

Conclusions:

It was interesting to see what the favourite wines of the professional visitors were…

Weingut Eymann wines, especially the rosé

Diwald wines from Austria

Miopasso Fiano, Nero d’Avola and Primitivo from Sicily and Puglia (see HERE)

CALUSARI Pinot Grigio 2011 and CALUSARI Pinot Noir 2011 from Romania, CRAMELE REÇAS

These last wines were indeed very interesting, well made, fresh, juicy, elegant and not too heavy. The white was a bit too mild in the finish for my taste and the red had a bit too much toasty tones in the finish. But, who would argue on those very tasty wines for a retail price of less than € 5.00! Great value for money!

Price indication*: advised consumer retail price in a Dutch wine shop, mostly slightly higher than the real shop price, surely when you buy it during special actions and by 6 or 12 bottles.
