GAMES OF WINES

Tokaji Furmint and Aszú Sharpening Noses and Palates at the SommCon in Washington, D.C.

As millions of ardent fans already know,“More wine!” is a command routinely uttered by Lord Tyrion Lannister in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones. But despite his brilliantly scheming mind and penchant for gulping goblets with nary a breath,Tyrion would be no match for the army of talented industry professionals who recently gathered in the courts of SommCon Washington, D.C. for the Game of Wines event, sponsored by The SOMM Journal and The Tasting Panel. 

Their mission?To blind-taste ten wines in 15 minutes and jostle with the challenging nuances of aroma, flavor, texture, and aftertaste. The ten wines were an eclectic mix of bottlings from locations near and far : some familiar, some more unexpected. “I know we presented some ringers,” said event moderator and SOMM Journal Publisher/Editorial Director Meridith May….”

Vinum Tokaj International challenged the tasters with 2013 Szent Tamás Furmint - a high-end expression of the dry Furmint, and with a 2006 Patricius 6 Puttonyos Tokaji Aszú, an amazingly fresh elixir, reflecting the essence of winemaking in Tokaj. 
Look for the full story in the SOMM Journal Magazine’ October-November issue.
