Some other wines – Taiwan treasures

May 14, 2011

At Friday night’s birthday party of the International Center for Land Policy Studies and Training in Taoyuan, Taiwan two bottles of wine made from millet were presented to us.

Wines not made from grape vines taste of course very different from fermented grape juice. I liked the fragrance and aromas of a grain based brew. The sweetness is of course deceiving and the rest sugar might give you headaches the next day. But I was positively surprised by the freshness and the fine balance of the liquid.

Beautiful millet wine

The milky liquid with the delicate fragrance

PS: I was careful and had only one glass from each bottle.
