EL IXIR Wine Tasting


I attend a special EL wine tasting at Enoteca in Tabaris. We had the pleasure to taste IXSIR‘s micro Cuvée in both, white and red: EL White 2012 and EL Red 2010.

 

I tasted first the EL White 2012

The subtle complexity of this wine distinguishes its elegant and delicate aromas of flowers combined with white fleshy fruits, infused herbs and spices.

On the palate, the purity of a great Viognier blended with the richness of the Chardonnay, offers an unctuous and full-bodied wine with exceptional elegance, minerality and depth.

 

And then I tried to the EL Red 2010

EL Red 2010

Good color and a subtle nuanced nose of ripe blackberries with a hint of spice.

In the mouth there is an instant lushness, backed up with a wonderful freshness. It has an elegant structure and a finish that is powerful, sustained and balanced.

Despite its youth, it’s already a pleasurable experience to taste. It triumphs with a seductive combination of classicism and hedonism. Although it can be savored now, it could very well reach full maturity in 2017 and age thereafter until 2030.

My favorite was the EL White 2012!

 

Are you a wine fan?
