Vino Condiviso 2022 The Italian Alps
Premium Franciacorta from the Italian Alps
15 Oct, 2022
又到最令意大利酒友期待的Vino Condiviso 2022! 今次主題為意大利阿爾卑斯山區, 酒友們可以一次過品嚐來自意大利北部多個產區 - Valle d'Aosta, Alto Piemonte, Lombardia 和 Trentino-Alto Adige 的葡萄酒!
VVA 今次就精心挑選了來自倫巴第(Lombardia)最為自豪的的傳統釀造法氣泡酒 - Franciacorta! 作為跟法國香檳同樣歷史悠久的傳統釀造法氣泡酒, Franciacorta 在瓶內浸渣陳年的時數更長, 帶出更濃厚的烘烤麵包及蛋糕香氣, 提升酒的複雜度和細膩口感!
當日最令到酒友們欣賞的就有 Antica Fratta 酒莊的‘Essence’ Saten DOCG NV 及‘Essence’ Nature DOCG 2015! 不少人喜歡白中白(Blanc de Blancs)的香檳, 而當然Franciacorta亦有同樣出色的白中白 - Saten! 採用100% Chardonnay釀造, 瓶內浸渣陳年30個月, Saten氣泡細緻, 口感豐盈, Chardonnay 的金蘋果和蜂蜜香氣伴隨著清爽而平衡的酸甜感, 令人不禁一杯接一杯!
‘Essence’ Nature DOCG 2015 有別於 Saten, 混合了Chardonnay和Pinot Noir釀造, 並且在瓶內浸渣陳年及除渣(disgorgement)後沒有再補加任何糖分, 亦即是Zero Dosage! 甜度屬於Brut Nature, 可以充分表現出Chardonnay和Pinot Noir的天然香氣和自然酸度, 適合配搭海鮮料理!

CIAO VINO - Heartland of Italy
More on Native Grape Varieities From Lesser-known Regions
25 Jun, 2022
非常感謝Vino Missionari團隊邀請VVA參與上星期六的Ciao Vino, 今次主題正是Heartland of Italy, 涵蓋了多個意大利中部的葡萄酒產區! 除了酒友們最熟悉的托斯卡納(Toscana)產區, VVA還帶來了來自馬爾凱 (Le Marche), 拉齊奧(Lazio)和莫利塞(Molise)的多款葡萄酒!
當日最令到酒友印象深刻的是來自馬爾凱的La Monacesca Verdicchio di Matelica 'Mirum' Riserva DOCG 2018, 以及拉齊奧的Cincinnato Bellone 'Enyo' IGT Lazio 2018! 'Mirum'完美呈現了Verdicchio di Matelica的濃郁香氣以及順滑口感, 成熟水果如香梨, 楊桃的酸度及杏仁核桃般的回甘相互平衡; Enyo則是來自知名度低的拉齊奧產區, 採用100%原生葡萄Bellone釀造, 加上獨特的瓶身, 令酒友們都十分好奇 - 但最令酒友們驚嘆的是Enyo的明顯礦物感, 帶出了Cori地區的火山土壤的特色! 同樣來自拉齊奧產區的Nero Buono 'Kora' IGT Lazio 2016更加考起了酒友, 其厚實的酒體和善變的香氣令人驚嘆於意大利原生葡萄的魅力!
VVA亦與酒友們一同分享來自莫利塞的 Cianfagna Tintilia del Molise 'Sator' DOC 2015 - Tintilia del Molise雖然是意大利最古老的原生葡萄品種之一, 但其細小身形及略低產量卻令到它差一點消失! 但隨著更多莫利塞的酒莊重新栽種及釀造Tintilia, 令到酒友們可以品嘗到黑果紅果香氣撲鼻, 泥土煙絲氣息明顯的Tintilia紅酒! 最後則是托斯卡納著名酒莊Castello di Bossi旗下的Renieri Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2018 - 葡萄園位於Montalcino最東邊, 鄰近的Mount Amiata火山賦予了礦物質豐富的火山土壤, 為Sangiovese增添了礦物感及更多香氣層次!

2022年首場Vino Condiviso! 非常感謝Vino Condiviso團隊在Soho House舉辦是次活動及邀請VVA一同分享意大利葡萄酒！今次Vino Condiviso以意大利兩大海上強國- 威尼斯及熱拿亞共和國為主題, 並配以Soho House炮製的威尼斯及撒丁島料理 - 最注目的當然是烤乳豬(Porcheddu)！而今次Vino Condiviso更加入了Masterclass及拍賣會, 等一眾酒友能在品嚐美酒佳餚之外深深體會意大利葡萄酒的驚人魅力及變化, 更能在刺激的競價下投得心頭好！
VVA為Grand Tasting及拍賣挑選了多款隱世撒丁島葡萄酒 - 白酒就當然是撒丁島唯一D O C G產區Gallura的Vermentino! 而拍賣會上的是在橡木桶內跟酒渣及酵母陳釀長達7年的Vermentino, 多位識貨酒友由底價HKD500競價至HKD1300才成交, 為整場拍賣揭開序幕！炎熱的香港夏天亦適合品嚐Rosè Wine - 採用100% Cannonau釀造, 散發出誘人的紅果及玫瑰香氣！最後兩款紅酒都展現出撒丁島紅葡萄品種的潛力, 往往帶着複雜深刻的香氣及如狼一般狂野的丹寧, 適合配答油脂豐富的烤乳豬及烤肉！

6 Italian White Wines to Pair With 12 Different Japanese Sushi
24 May, 2022
6款來自意大利北部至南部, 採用原生葡萄品種的白酒, 並且配以神一廚師發板料理的12款手握壽司, 究竟哪一款會令人眼前一亮? VVA終於跟一眾酒友都找到答案! 意大利北部至南部的白酒都因為氣候、土壤、葡萄品種以及釀酒風格都大有不同, 就如廚師發板料理每款壽司所選用的海鮮風味和料理手法各異, 然而有趣的是不論是葡萄酒抑或廚師發板料理, 都是由清爽新鮮的口味慢慢漸入佳境, 到品嚐香氣層次豐富, 油脂充沛的味道!
意大利北部的兩款葡萄酒 - 苦橙柚子香氣十足的Roero Arneis和清新檸檬果香的 Pinot Grigio, 與灑上柚子果皮, 稍微調味的首4款刺身互相配合, 清新感能在炎熱的天氣下勾起人的食慾! 緊接著是最令酒友們讚不絕口的2款意大利中部葡萄酒 - 來自Lazio的Bellone和Campania的Falanghina! 2款意大利原生葡萄的成熟水果香氣及油膩的口感, 平衡的酸度及礦物感, 意想不到地與廚師發板料理的主角們 - 鮮味十足的海膽及油脂感充沛的吞拿魚刺身等非常匹配, 更有不少酒友大讚即使是配搭其後師傅略經炙燒的魚類都綽綽有餘! 但一提到吞拿魚料理, 又不得不配上同樣以吞拿魚料理聞名的西西里島的白葡萄酒! 來自歐洲最高活火山埃特納火山的Carricante, 跟撒丁島 的Vermentino (尤其是來自撒丁島唯一DOCG產區Gallura)都是礦物感十足, 甚至入口後會帶有鹹香, 為炙燒後的海鮮或是吞拿魚大卷帶來點綴!
品嚐甜品時, 酒友們都不禁讚賞來自意大利中部酒友們Lazio的Bellone, 認為其豐富的口感及出色的酸度能夠配搭多款海鮮料理之餘, 即使料理有山葵豉油等調味亦能散發出迷人的香氣, 正正是意大利葡萄酒配搭食物的潛力! 嚟唔到今次壽司 x 意大利白葡萄酒配搭都可以都可享用優惠價HKD988訂購一套6款白葡萄酒，在家享受壽司葡萄酒配搭!
A Venetian Wine Trip at Venédia
When in Venice, drink Amarone as the Venetian do
20 May, 2022
難忘的威尼斯美酒之旅！非常感激各位酒友一齊出走水都威尼斯，不少酒友更是相隔半年後再一同分享酒經!在奪目的Murano水晶燈及Venedia精湛的威尼斯料理的映襯下，當晚的五款來自Veneto 及Friuli-Venezia-Giulia 的酒款更是生色不少！
率先揭開威尼斯美酒之旅序幕的當然是高等級的 Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG，更加是來自位處陡峭山坡上的單一葡萄園(Rive)! 清爽的紅蘋果、蜜桃果香，些微甜度伴隨著平衡的礦物感，是Aperitivo的首選! 接著的Octopus Carpaccio及龍蝦羅勒Risotto更是充滿了威尼斯水都風情，淡雅的調味帶出了海鮮的豐富鮮味，葡萄酒的配搭上VVA則挑選了同樣優雅而層次豐富的Borgo del Tiglio Collio DOC 2019白酒，以及Corte Sant' Alda Valpolicella Ripasso ‘Campi Magri’ DOC 2017紅酒! Borgo del Tiglio Collio是結合了Friulano, Chardonnay 及 Riesling三款葡萄品種釀造，Chardonnay 及 Riesling的豐富果香花香及蜂蜜香氣，品嚐時更有Friulano明顯的堅果杏仁的甘澀; ‘Campi Magri’ Valpolicella Ripasso被稱作年輕版的Amarone，新鮮的紅果果香有著蜂蜜、玫瑰乾、無花果乾等香氣的點綴，意外地與龍蝦羅勒Risotto非常相配!
威尼斯美酒之旅的主角當然少不了Veneto自豪的Amarone della Valpolicella! Amarone是由風乾葡萄釀造，是釀酒師與大自然、天氣、葡萄品質及自身釀酒技術的一場賭注! 而在種種考驗下還能帶出自身釀酒風格的Amarone，正正就是由女性釀酒師Marinella Camerani釀造的傑作 - Corte Sant' Alda Amarone della Valpolicella ‘Valmezzane’ DOCG 2015 及Adalia Amarone della Valpolicella ‘Ruvaln’ DOCG 2016! 不論是配搭肉香十足的Braised Pork Shoulder，抑或細心品嚐，兩款Amarone香氣撲鼻而單寧柔和，優雅細緻的風格都深得酒友喜愛!
Piemonte Wine Dinner at Cipriani
A Wine Dinner Worth All the Wait Like A Fine Barolo...
28 April, 2022
經歷一波三折的Cipriani 皮埃蒙特 Wine Dinner 終於在昨晚成功舉辦, 非常感謝一眾酒友出席支持, 一同享受精心配搭的皮埃蒙特酒款及Cipriani精湛的菜式! 昨晚最令到酒友眼前一亮的, 就當然是皮埃蒙特當地人最常飲用的餐酒 Dolcetto! 在意大利文中解作「小甜蜜」的Dolcetto, 在酒杯中散發出花香, 成熟的黑果及紅果果香, 但入口時單寧明顯及帶出獨有的苦澀感, 令人一杯接一杯暢飲之餘, 更非常適合配搭皮埃蒙特傳統料理 Vitello tonnato!
而昨晚Wine Dinner主角就當然少不了皮埃蒙特的酒王Barolo與酒后Barbaresco - 不少酒友盛讚La Ganghija酒莊的Barbaresco 2017 酒體柔中帶剛, Nebbiolo的豐富花果芳香及木桶帶出的雲呢拿香氣十分平衡; 而Virna Borgogno酒莊的Barolo di Barolo 2014 則酒香濃烈奔放, 展現極好的陳年魅力!
Our long-waited Cipriani Piemonte Wine Dinner was finally finished last night, thanks to all wine-lovers joining us to enjoy the well-paired Piemontese wines and excellent cuisine at Cipriani! The most charming wine goes to the well-appreciated Dolcetto, the most common food-pairing wine in Piedmont! 'Little sweet one' in Italian, it expresses floral fragance, ripe black and red fruit, along with expressive tannin and signature bitterness, making it paired amazingly with Piedmont's traditional cuisine Vitello tonnato!
The main characters of last night went to 'King of Wines' and 'Queen of Wines' - Barolo and Barbaresco! Many guests praised La Ganghija Barbaresco 2017 for its well-balanced vanila oaky note and Nebbiolo's rich floral and fruity scents, elegant yet powerful! Virna Borgogno Barolo di Barolo 2014 is still vibrant and fresh, showing great aging potential!
5 Wines for 5 Samurai Teppanyaki Lunch
Perfect Match, Perfect Meal
12 February 2022
日式鐵板燒除了可以配搭清酒之外, 葡萄酒亦十分適合! VVA為五武士鐵板燒午餐中剛好挑選了五款葡萄酒! 來自英國東南部West Sussex的Stopham酒莊, 作為餐前酒的英國傳統法氣泡酒震驚全場, 配搭北海道真鱈魚的Pinot Gris白酒驚艷亮麗! 無論薄或厚燒的鐵板牛都跟意大利薩丁島酒莊Tenute Olbios的Colli del Limbara Rosso "Nessuno"絕佩, 並帶出紅酒濃郁紅果及黑果果香, 亦有森林般的清新木香; 師傅在炒飯的時候，大家比鄰座活活的鮑魚吸引，決定「加餸」並即場選了意大利氣泡酒Andreola Verv Prosecco, 清新的酸度能帶出鮑魚的鮮味! 最後意大利東南部的Puglia, 來自酒莊I Pàstini的Minutolo甜酒有着獨特礦物氣息及均衡的花香, 非常適合配搭甜度十足的日本水果!
Want something new for pairing with Teppanyaki? Our Teppanyaki Lunch at 5 Samurai went perfectly with 5 wines! For aperitivo and Madara fish, English Sparkling and Pinot Gris from the winery Stopham in West Sussex showed the stunning potential of English wines! To pair with Teppanyaki beef, Tenute Olbios Colli del Limbara Rosso "Nessuno" from Sardinia is perfect, thanks to its expressive aromas of black and red fruits, so as woods and forest! As the Teppanyaki Master was cooking our fried rice, we were tempted to try the live abalone served to the next table! We chose Andreola Verv prosecco, a lively and vital sparkling! Our Teppanyaki wine lunch sweetly ends with a Minutolo Passito from I Pàstini winery in Puglia, showing exceptional minerality and floral aromas and going well with sweet and fresh Japanese fruit!
CHUECA - Spanish Wine Dinner
A Spanish Night-out in Central
7 December 2021
It was full of Spanish vibes last night at CHUECA! VVA Team hosted a semi-outdoor wine dinner at the newly-opened CHUECA in Central, enjoying various Tapas and a wide selection of Spanish wines with our guests under a relaxing atmosphere! A Cava is surely a must for kicking start our Spanish night-out, and to pair with the Tapas, an aromatic white wine of tropical fruits aromas and a medium-bodied old vine red wine from Montsant Mountain will be the perfect choices! Moving onto main course, Rib Eyes and Lobster Rice were mouth-watering and savoury, and what can pair better with 2 excellent red wines of decent acidity and round tannin, along with aromas of spices, walnuts and ripe fruits, despite the difference in grape varieties and blendings! Lastly, a fortified sweet red wine of Garnacha and a Vermut to pair with the amazing-looking cheesecake and flan!
VVA is honoured to have Mr Jürgen Wagner, winemaker and export manager of Celler de Capçanes to tell our guests more about each wine and the process behind making Kosher wines!
