white and red

Yesterday I have tasted two absolutely different wines. Yes of course ... one was white and the other one red  ... but beside this fact they were really different in taste and style.

Both wines were tasted blind in my favorite tasting glass Riedel Riesling - Vinum Extreme Series

1. Vouvray 2006 - Domaine Huet 
showed strong aging aromas on the nose, no fruit, no structure, the same on the palate, residual sugar, very unpleasant. 
No chance to determine Chenin Blanc or Vouvray in this bottle.

2. Blaufränkisch Eisenberg 2006 - Uwe Schiefer
rather light in color, red berries and spicyness on the nose, good tannin structure and balance, 12,5%abv. and that creates a typical, easy drinking BF, very good and good value for money (9€ at cellar door)
