Does anyone know if that level of alcohol is normal for this sort of wine or was it a particularly high alcohol vintage?
Corbières is regularly 14-15% - ripe style from the Deep South.
Well I think we’re wrapping up now! So I’ll leave a poll to see who preferred which wine on the night (whether you’re here or not!)
- Gruner for me!
- I liked the Corbieres best
- I’m at the AGM and preferred one of the other wines (please comment which!)
I havenMt is the chance to taste any other wines, but I’ve been evangelising!
Corbieres is really hot so produces wine with higher alcohol content.
Had I drunk the white I’d almost certainly still have preferred the Corbiere, but I didn’t so in fairness I shall refrain from voting!
Noooo I was having so much fun
Are you sure?..
You had that one ready and waiting didn’t you?
Haha! I want to find a GIF to reply to that but this computer is being broadcast on the big screen and I’m worried about what might appear!
We’re still here, so I’ll comment until about 8! Thanks SO MUCH for turning up though, everyone - it’s been a fun but very busy tasting!
Oh good, that GIF is now on the screen!
I’ve been on pouring duty, sorry! loved the grüner. The red a little hot early on but seems to be coming together nicely
Glad it worked , Ive now removed the kids from the hot tub… thanks to #twstaste this evening theyre up later than usual!!
