Little bit ordinary i can feel a little Bit of malolactic Feeling like a breath not very strong But Ok it’s good on nose clearly some Support for the snappy ssb And what will they make of the thracian Sauvignon grey from turgoot Okay i don’t get any oak aging in the Palette in fact very nice acidity team But very much on the peachy strong Fruity side This one it’s very sweet Very sweet and light So that one little pale This one is stronger after the taste i Can feel the strong in my mouth but Then it’s getting lighter the taste and I feel the grapes And this one was fantastic for me that’s Why tasting Still feeling more fruit and something Like that you know it’s Not very complex and a bit of alcohol Comes to the nose high acidity again Aubry barrels And a little bit tannic i guess i i Cannot figure out where it comes from Well yolaj it’s turkey but can’t tell You that yet The stemware for this battle reedl and Thanked riddle turkey And say it kara guzuglu and we have an Official water partner in turkey

Da turkey’s premium table water and what Stunning packaging Those distinctive blue bottles wow Here we go six vital votes to come i Have no idea which way this group will Vote Let me say she seems unpredictable a bit Like patsy I choose this one she goes for frank Australia away The sombra now what i want Okay with time i’m going with more Complexity Longer in mouths disarmer ties it up for Turkey One all four so My favorite this one sammy on the Streets Votes for australia they lead I think this one is better for me [Music] Ergan supports the home team we are tied To all your lunch Um this is the one that i choose because It’s more live it’s longer on taste And it takes me a trek to somewhere else The final turkish vote Will they tie it up or will australia Take the handy lead I think this one pirate speaks they do Australia leads four votes to two frank And balandine and it will all come down To part two After the short half-time break and

We’ll travel to sydney Where we doubt very few have tried a Thracian sauvignon greed before And they try a lot of ssb so the exotic May enchance them So before the halftime break were the Turkish judges able to guess where Frank’s australian wines comes from They certainly liked it italy france I’m thinking from the turkey uzbekistan It’s france i think from denis Turkey turkey Spain fascinating guesses but the scores Are what matters Turkey trails two votes to four at Halftime let’s expand your universe and Learn from our owner and winemaker of Arcadia vineyards zynep about her region It’s long history they have revived and What food matches sauvignon gree With this steroid wine we try to offer The food that comes from this steroid The food that comes from our own Grows and the surrounding villages from You know sustainably maintained gardens And free-range animals so These are things that people don’t have Access to anymore we have this hotel and This very nice restaurant Very where we try to pair the seasonal Food with real ingredients from this Terroir With the wines made from this terroir With this

I think it would go very well with our Salmon terrine or mousse That that would be a great pairing as Well as We have this particular homemade pasta That we Season with local truffles we have a lot Of tuberous stevia The summer truffles in this region so i Think i would pair this with the truffle Pasta with the grease in the sand with The Nice acidity i think it will pair very Well with that creamy truffle pasta So here we’re in trace but trace is a Very particular region That extends throughout three different Countries western trace which is greece There’s northern trace which is bulgaria And there’s the eastern trace which is Turkey so we’re in the east most part of That eastern trace Which is also different than the other Parts of trace in turkey we’re in a Continental climate here Well since we came here we’ve learned a Lot and we grew very attached to this Land obviously My dream since a while is to be able to Create a wine route That connects all these three different Parts of trace together and have an International tracy in wine road I think that would be amazing now that’s

The spirit whiny people Let us at it and we can deliver Friendship and fraternity Could you ever imagine beer drinkers Delivering world peace Okay enough wine diplomacy back to the Fierce competition The judgement of sydney part two To recap our nominators are turgud Tokart a wine educator Studying himself to become an mw so it’s One of its kind not many samyang greens Around the world either it’s really nice Lots of stone fruit Lots of fresh acidity going on here and Battling turgot is frank moylan A hospitality legend musician and part Of a very creative coupling with his Wife Melissa dylan rama has created a really Sharp little snappy wine this has got Great Tropical fruit characteristics it’s Zesty it’s Vibrant jumps out of the glass gives you A bit of a slap in the face And i’d be really happy to be drinking It in the sun With some prawns fish you could drink This wine all afternoon Responsibly of course the crunch down Version of the battle card A turkish rarity the audriziere greed 2018 from arcadia vineyards

It’s got a real viscous almost unctuous Slippery texture to it Aged a little bit too long or it’s been Oxidatively handled i’m getting a lot of Bruised apple which is fine but I’m not really getting much freshness to Kind of counter that so it’s really Dominating the wine And what about closer to whole but still Quite exotic Many australians still don’t know that Queensland has a wine region Finish is quite delicate but quite Medium to long Getting a bit of grapefruit lime zest And i see quite herbaceous quite herbal Not that fruity Definitely no oak sounds a little bit More herbaceous I feel like it’s a variety i don’t have Too often Not as aromatic it’s a little bit less Muted It’s kind of got some honey in it from What i can tell I would happily drink that every day of The week apple pear Sort of bitter pistachio almond sense But but restrained stuff here A pretty innocuous wine but there’s Nothing wrong with it i would happily Drink that It’s a little bit fresher it’s more kind Of tropical fruit note palette’s a

Little bit softer But it’s just more imbalanced like it Definitely is a little bit more fruit Forward but It’s imbalanced with the acidity in Balance with the alcohol Yeah that’s that’s quite polarizing i’m Not i’m really not quite sure Um there’s a tiny bit of fun to it but i I like it you know It’s it’s it’s kind of nice nice can be Good adam Now to the all-important foes six to Come remember Australia leads 4-2 but in this game Things can change Very quickly ned a surfing master of Wine up first And i’m i’m liking that complexity that Length It’s really strident through the mouth And it’s got a very long finish Zainib should be very proud to earn that Vote now one of australia’s top Sommeliers Matt out of these two wines my pick is This one here Another expert vote for turkey we’re Tied up for all Could the australians all vote for Turkey surely Not so australia back on track Thanks to luella okay christine takes The time
