One of the yummier French wines. Rich and complex. A Saturday night treat.
I either need a bigger tv or smaller, fewer, (see through?) animals.
That Sunday night feeling, full of excitement for what Monday lies ahead... not. Ugh.
Sorry @frereshure - you give us this beautiful champagne and this is what the heathens do to it. It’s still delicious!!
It seems December is cellar decimation month. The destruction continues with perhaps my favourite red wine - thanks to the brilliant folk at @papapietroperrywinery for sorting me out with a few bottles to get through the Christmas. This exceptional Pinot has sweet black fruit, blueberry and a smidgen cola. Delish!!!
A very kind gift of a fabulous wine from @frereshure that will be given a good home for our new year celebration tomorrow!! Though, do I have to share??? 🤔
One of my favourite wines from one of my favourite wineries @frogsleap - if you are ever in Napa, they are a must visit. How they farm creating their own little eco systems to support the vines without the need for chemicals or drip irrigation is inspiring. Love them!!!
The cellar raid continues. This dusty beauty we got @vonstrasserlavavine Lava Vines in Napa a few years ago. It was nice then but it’s stellar now - fabulous rich fruit, leather and spice. Tasty as hell. Will have to go back for more!
Taking a break from the wine this evening... this bramble beer from @standrewsbrewco is much better than cranberry sauce with leftover turkey. Tasty, rich beer with an interesting smidgen of blackberry which is going down very well...
Dusting off one from the cellar today. A purchase during our last visit to Otago this one is now 9 years old and is just frickin awesome. Huge black fruit and spice aromas that are even bigger on the palate. Fabulous balance of rich black fruit yet done elegantly with nicely balanced tannins and massive length. A blockbuster. We tasted it when it was young and this is absolute proof that if you pay more than $50 for a Kiwi Pinot and don’t give it a minimum 5 years, you’re wasting your money.
