Once again, I was privileged enough to have another wine tasting session with Wine Talk. The last session with Wine Talk was a really memorable and enjoyable one where I learned a few things about wine and it was the first time I heard about Rosé wine. (http://www.ktheblogger.com/2013/03/wine-talk-with-room-service.html) It was still held at the vicinity of Bangsar this time but at La Bodega Lounge:
Back again to teach me more about wine is Wine Talk's French Sommelier, David Stephan.
Here's him with me and Isaac:
In total, we tasted five wines where 2 were White, 1 was Rosé and 2 were Red.
It's colors are subtle yellow, almost clear.
Next wine presented to us was also a White Wine called Monte Da Peceguina 'Branco' from Portugal (RM90):
To go with the wine, we were presented with this dish:
Next up came the Rosé wine:
The color looks orangey:
To go with the wine, we had the Albóndigas "Saint Climent":
Moving on, it's time for the heavy tastes ala Red Wine.
We started off with the Lion's Lair Shiraz from Swartland, South Africa:

For the food pairing of this, we were presented with Arroz Negro con Calamares y Allioli (RM35 or 1 pax, RM68 for 2):
And the last wine that was given to us to try was the Pago De Cirsus 'Vendimia Seleccionada', Navarra, Spain (RM81):
Anyway, it's colors are darker than the Shiraz earlier and duller. It has very strong tannin taste to it and goes well with Cheeses and Roasted Lamb.
And the dish that was served with this wine is of course this:
