It’s time. This amazing white from the very talented and wonderful @quintadojudeu has been sitting in our wine rack too long. The 2010 actually has 14.5% but@you wouldn’t think it. The wine is rich with notes of orange marmalade and honey. Deliciously rich and complex. Hoping my whole baked Turbot is a worthy companion... 🥺
So tonight this c £9 is a rarity - a Pinot that is decent at that price. Not massively complex (as you would expect) but nice cherry and red fruit flavours and very drinkable. Will be on our summer bbq wine list. Well done (yet again) @thewinesociety1874
First day back after bank holiday weekend be like....
And tonight’s companion to yummy home made lasagne is this interesting juicy Italian offering from @samplerwine - blueberry, plum and dark cherry with some tobacco in the finish.
Well this is just lovely! Very pale with petrol in the nose over hint lemon. Peach, honey and melon flavours. Lovely minerality with a touch of moorish sweetness. Dangerously delicious. Available from @thewinesociety1874 and @nzwineuk More please!
A slightly posher one from @thewinesociety1874 this evening to celebrate @doublemeasure coming of age. Interesting and complex with forest floor aromas, mix of subtle sweet red fruit, tangy cranberries and elegant tannins on the finish. Yum yum.
A tasty little number from the talented folk @thewinesociety1874 A South African Viognier that’s rich and buttery with soft peach and pear and a delicate finish. Happy almost Friday!
Oh I do like to be beside the seaside 🎶
Expect the recycling folk will be judging us again 😬. Epic line up all the same...
And now the piece de resistance- a wonderful palate cleanser. Milk chocolate notes with hints of toffee and lost fillings. Very tasty. Thanks @fergal_crossan for this gastronomic extravaganza.
