NV Barborka Rulandské Šedé from Velké Pavlovice, #Czech Republic. Rulandské Šedé is Pinot Gris. Quite one dimensional and uninteresting. Green fruit and citrus notes with a soft, round finish; medium body. ABV 11%. I suppose it's fine for roughly 5 USD. Way more interesting that those bulk Cali wines that are ubiquitous in USA grocery stores. #wine #pinotgris #pinot #sommelier #notmyfav #delectableapp

NV Ravia Pálava, Morava, #Czech Repiblic. My first Czech wine! The grape Pálava is a cross of Gewürztraminer and Muller Thurgau and this shows some qualities of both. Slightly floral aromas with ripe pear, honeydew melon and a faint ginged spice. Soft and dry finish with mineral notes; medium-bodied. Thanks to the lovely Lenka Culbertson from @radiuspizza for bringing this back for me to sample. #wine #sommelier #palava #morava #moravia #delectableapp

Mio Sparkling #Sake by Sho Chiku Bai/Takara Shuzo from Kyoto, Japan. It's pretty sweet with 12.6 residual sugar and ABV 5%. Think of this as the moscato of sake with fruity rice notes with a citrusy finish. Slightly sweet and slightly fizzy. Not the best sparkling sake by far as Poochie-Poochie is a far superior product but almost twice the price. Good for the masses and the moscato lovers. #sake #sommelier #japan #sparkling #delectableapp
