Weather somewhat better in this corner of Scotland…for once…compared to you folks dahn sahf…
Opened a bottle of this last night with lamb chops.
Part of the summer mixed case offer. Quite tart and acidic initially I thought, with a pronounced syrah bouquet. Softer and better tonight. Nice enough wine at the offer price, but there are better value ones at full price.
Reviews on website are mixed, one is quite harsh and I think may be based on first taste after opening. I would say it’s a perfectly pleasant wine but there are probably better CdR for the money, and the single village wines from this producer are a cut above this as might be expected.
