Going Dutch – the tasting notes


Below are my notes on the wines presented in My most surprising tasting ever. Tasting these wines was a real pleasure, the pleasure of discovery. The film shot by By the Grape's talented film-maker Fred van Dijk will show my transformation from condescending scepticism to surprised delight.

As I said, the wines were carefully chosen, to present Dutch wine's most attractive face presumably, apparently by senior Dutch wine writer Hubrecht Duijker, and it was just a shame that the St Martinus wine by the flying Dutch winemaker Stan Beurskens didn't make it in time.

I do not have prices...
