A somewhat difficult day at work, so a Manzanilla was required. En Rama one, at that!
What can I say? Delicious, complex, tangy, moreish, mighty fine……
As it’s the last drink before my WSET 3 exam on Friday (wake me up when it’s all over!) – the husband decided on one last blind tasting for me.
A glass of very deep ruby wine was placed before me – and I had to come to some conclusions. Well, it had a somewhat muted nose, but I did get some black cherries, plums, some spice (clove, methinks) and violets. The palate was much more enjoyable – similar fruit – dark sour cherries, bramble, red plum plus some clove, a dash of liquorice and a twist of pepper. Mellow tannins, and acidity that suggested a cool climate. I went for Zweigelt, but it was in fact the lovely 2016 Lagrein from Hofstätter:
Should be very good with some home-made wild boar burgers… and beats revision any day!
What are you drinking this evening…?
