Vieux Magon 2008 ~ Tunisia [Nov. 9th, 2013|10:56 pm]

I've tried a few Tunisian wines, and I've never been disappointed. This one was slightly sweet, with notes of vanilla.

And now for the educational portion of this entry:

"Mornag is one of the most fertile plains of Tunisia, and is mainly known for its agricultural plain dedicated to the vine and the olive," says a translation of the French language wikipedia page on Mornag.

Élevé en fûts de chêne is a French phrase that may appear on wine labels to denote that the wine has been aged in oak barrels.
