So … nearly two and half years ago, my name was pulled out of a hat (along with @lapin_rouge and @strawpig) to take part in the Society’s regular press tasting and swirl, sniff and slurp a whole lot of wines, to report back to you lovely people.
That was meant to take place in March 2020, and we all know why that didn’t happen. Well, @lapin_rouge made it to the tasting last September, and tomorrow it will be my turn. Sadly, @strawpig can’t make it this time so I will be tasting solo, getting through as many as my untutored, amateur palate will let me!
I’ll be a day tripper, so it’s early train for me in the morning, and hopefully by then my nose will have recovered from the guided tour of the local sewage works that we went on this morning, because it’s been repeating on me all afternoon.
I’m afraid I won’t be able to check in with the forum or post selfies with @Ewan on the day itself, as my phone is a little, shall we say, retro, but I’ll say hi when I get back and will be putting up notes on everything I taste once I’ve typed it all up into something vaguely coherent.
