You are invited to join us on Tuesday 21 July 2009 7:00pm: The ABC of Wines – at the Hilton Beijing 1 Dong Fang Road, North Dong Sanhuan Road, Chaoyang District 100027.

The second in a new series of events hosted by the Hilton’s Wine Sommelier Julia Zhu and is targeted at people that enjoy the fruit of the vine but are not too sure about what is a good wine and tend to classify wines purely by colour.

The ABC is more then Aroma, Body and Colour and Julia will help us understand the nuances.

Cost 150RMB if pre registered before Monday 20 July or 200RMB if not registered.

Space is limited.

Registration http://www.fcclub.com/events/bj21july09 Or email eventbj@fcclub.com or call 139 1109 8002.

Julia informs us that she has managed to obtain for us 3 quality, award winning California wines from Delicato Family Vineyard to be tasted at this wine event.

Additionally it will be possible to purchase bottles / cases of wine at discounted prices.

The wines to be tasted are:

Twisted, Chardonnay, Lodi, California, 2007
Twisted, Merlot, Lodi, California, 2007
Twisted, Cabernet Sauvignon, Lodi, California, 2007

The 2007 Chardonnay is a medium-bodied wine with tropical fruit and zesty lemon aromas. Crisp, citrus flavours and fresh green apple form a light, soft palate and a clean, balanced finish.

The 2007 Merlot is a medium-bodied wine showing layered aromas of ripe black cherry, raspberry and mocha. Black cherry is mirrored on the palate sprinkled with hints of pepper and spice. Balanced acidity and supple tannins lead to a smooth, juicy finish.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is medium-bodied with an aromatic nose of ripe black cherry, blackberry and cedar, with brambly, floral overtones. Black currant, ripe plum, and black cherry flavors round out the palate, while plush tannins lead to a soft, juicy finish.

The Delicato Family Vineyard is not only one of the top four Californian vineyards and the recipient of many awards it is also operates a sustainable approach to farming. This evening promises to be very successful and since space is limited early registration is recommended. It is also highly recommended that you do not self-drive to this event.

I will be going by taxi.
