A patriotic tear-inducing nyetimber…something to really be proud of Britain for! A deliciously juicy spanish ribeira, a deep smoky chinon cab franc with cheese/charcuterie and for sunday with lamb: 2009 ch.malescasse…really looking forward to that!
One of the many neighbourhood mogs likes to ‘own’ our front door, if you know what I mean. This in turn affects the doormat and, finally, the soles of our shoes. What this means is that I cannot go near a conventional NZ-style sauvignon blanc because to me it just smells like our front hall on a bad day.
Here we are on Good Friday, and I can’t believe we haven’t got a Weekend drinking thread going yet! So to get things started… We are out for dinner tonight, so I’m taking a couple of Wine Soc-sourced bottles: the red I know well, having bought EP for several vintages; the Riesling is new to me, and probably a touch sweeter than I would normally go for - anyone tried this?
This weekend, bit of a mixed bag (all TWS). Had the older vintage of the Casa Romana before and it was amazing. Looking forward to the Beaumont Mourvèdre, which was the first producer to release a 100% Mourvèdre wine in SA.
