In order to avoid more cemetery wines in Västervik, we this evening Cora-wined a Martha´s Vineyard 1983 from the famous Heitz cellars. Some of the original Joe Heitz aromas were there, astonishing fresh acidity, a little ” empty” in the middle, but with a long nuanced finish. Not at all dead, but without the former power of coarse. Perhaps somewhat too elegant accompanying a beef ragout. You cannot get it all.
Here we found a hint of piquant Brett, somewhat like old times Bordeaux premier crus, well developed aromas but a little empty of lacking fruit in the middle. Long delicious aftertaste of chocolate and vanilla.
