Moscatos are always a true beauty. They are suitable for almost any occasion and are good for any taste. The only problem is that sometimes they can be too sweet. Now, wouldn’t it be perfect if you could find one that is in perfect balance. Just the right amount of sourness and sweetness, keeping its elegance and finesse, but at the same be conceited, narcissist and above all charismatic.
This Yellow Tail is just like this. I am really surprised at this series of wine. Being Australian I did not thought they were too good. But I was wrong! I was wrong to the point of regret.
In a previous post I talked about the Shiraz, Yellow tail made me change how I feel about this types of wine, now I feel like I can actually like them. And with this Moscato I feel like Moscatos do not have to necessary be shy and playful, but that can actually be mature and sensual.
Found in: Carrefour, Simple Mart, 7-11
[Note: Fruitiness, sourness and Sweetness, are a white wine characteristics, they do not define the quality of a wine]
I remember when they first introduced this brand in Taiwan, the Kangaroo you see in the picture was everywhere and there was even a man in a kangaroo costume, as if wine was something meant to for children. After a while the fuzz went down and you could only find it in the supermarkets. I heard people talking about it, and I had always wanted to try it.
Even when it starts at 3 am in Taiwan, it is a show that I love to watch.
This year it is being hosted by Ukraine. Some years the hosts are really lame and they make the show terrible. Sweden has had the best hosts I have seen, but these Ukrainian guys aren’t falling behind. Nice, charming and witty.
Australia – His voice is too mature for his young face. I hated his background. Next time Aussies.
Albania – Nothing special
Belgium – I am surprised by her deep voice. Not my favourite, but the song is not bad.
Finland – it’s ok. Nothing more to say
Azerbaijan – Not very good. I remember this country as having nice, well polished songs with classy performance. I think they are absobing the eccentricity from other. I, personally don’t see them in the final. But maybe if they buy it, of course.
Greece – Nothing special
Poland – Ehm… next.
Moldova – They make think of Ed Sheeran… but, don’t misunderstand me, no nobody compares to Ed’s talent
Iceland – a cape???
Czech Republic – soft song, that is it.
Cyprus – I actually enjoy this song. Very nice and the guy is good looking. Hope he makes it to the final.
Armenia – Interesting hue
Slovenia – Doesn’t he look like Robbie Williams?
Latvia – Why??? are you the Miley Cyrus of Europe?
The countries that made it to the final are (in the order they were announced):
Moldova: Hey Mamma by Sunstroke Project
Azerbaijan: Skeletons by Dihaj
Greece: This Is Love by Demy
Sweden: I Can’t Go On by Robin Bengtsson
Portugal: Amar Pelos Dois by Salvador Sobral
Poland: Flashlight by Kasia Moś
Armenia: Fly With Me by Artsvik
Australia: Don’t Come Easy by Isaiah
Cyprus: Gravity by Hovig
Belgium: City Lights by Blanche
Ok, with Armenia, Greece and Poland, I think they were just filling the remaining space. As these songs were not special at all.
I am also pretty sure Azerbaijan and Australia, pay quite a lot of money for this event, so even though they are not in the Big Ones, they always make to the Final.
Moldova, wasn’t a complete disaster. So altogether with Cyprus and Belgium, they are fairly in this list. Hope they do good in the final. and by this I mean I hope they do not end up last. I simply do not see them winning.
Sweden and Portugal. As you read before, they are some of my favorites. It would be very hard for me to have to chose between these two countries, but although the Swedish is hot, I think the Portugal guy has more talent.
As he did not needed much in his performance to make the audience vote for him. He did not even had to sing in English. His inicial introduction was so cute and not show off as others. It was only him in libraries and reading in the tram. He looks like a nice, well-hearted guy, with not only sweet voice but knowledgeable brain.
12 points for Portugal.
I hope you liked this quick note on the Eurovision.
I have watched the Eurovision for 8 years. Yes, sometimes it is disappointing to see get too political. But every year the show is espectacular, they put a lot of effort in the details and many of the performances are high quality. The songs feel fresh from what there is always on the radio. It can be quite weird sometimes, but it is entertaining. In short words, I love the Eurovision.
I will post again for the second semifinal and the final
