First in! Have the week off and making the most of it. (No mention of me finishing off the last glass of Riesling with my lunch of leftover ham toastie)
My Waitrose completely sold out of Whispering Angel. Several displays around the store, all gaping holes. Forced to try “Palm, by Whispering Angel,” and a delicious drop it is. Comparing across rosé season so far this year, better than than Miraval.
Pale salmon pink, suitably nice label. Smells of strawberry leaf, redcurrants and maybe even fields of lavender waving in the provençal breeze (ok maybe I got carried away with that last bit). Starts off with a certain roundness on the palate but has a citrus edge to it. Strawberry leaf, redcurrants and maybe a touch of grapefruit pith. Nice with food, pleasingly enticing on its own. Prefers not to be ice cold.
