Midweek Drinking Thread 18-21st Feb 2019



This is a rather good mature bargain. Agree it tastes about 5 years younger than 2005. Certainly will try some of the other vintages on offer!


Something different for me this week, Ive got a big (red) weekend ahead!
Budget Gewurtz.

Not bad, subtle lychee flavour is there, a little sweetness and a nice finish for a cheap Gewurtz. Tasted better on day two for me, and was an unusual but nice pairing with a spicy mid week Chilli.
Not up to the standard of the lovely Silbador the Society offered, but I think that was a rare bargain for this grape type.
