trying to go against the grain with my first wine selection in HK

sampling wines outside the HK trends

It’s easy to walk into a wine shop to purchase wine.  The sheer variety is always overwhelming.  The trick for me is to sample wines that are not currently all the rage in HK.  Bordeaux and Burgundy are immediately tossed out, too cost prohibitive and market saturation dictates everyone is already consuming it.  I prefer the unassuming brands that have yet to make it big in HK.   Photo above for reference on the three wines I have stumbled upon.

Abbaia is spicy.  It tasted better after being open for longer periods.

Kocabag’s Kalecik Karasi is a welcome change.  I never knew Turkey to be a maker of wines nor having grapes native to only their part of the world.

Block Nine’s pinot noir was very easy to drink.  For my beginner wine palette I loved this one the most.
