Cuvée Sélectionnée Ugni Blanc 2006 ~ Tunisia [Apr. 22nd, 2008|05:11 pm]

This wine is too good for me. I'm not worthy. Somewhere, a fancy wine snob is drinking my grape juice and wondering what happened to his Ugni Blanc.

I admit I expected this wine to be crap. Not because it's Tunisian - just because I never heard of Tunisia having a reputation for wine, doesn't mean they can't produce something nice. But I grabbed the cheapest whatever in the airport to get rid of my coins, so I didn't expect much.

It's crisp, it's grassy, it's dry, and it's just lovely. It's everything it should be, and more. I feel lucky to be drinking it.
