Don’t get me wrong, but this lunch time I realised a feeling of relief , though that’s not really the right word, that I didn’t have to select a wine for tonight. We are having our usual penne pasta with aubergine and tomato sauce and with that we’ll have our no brainer Society Montepulciano.
On Friday’s we have fish and a bottle of NZ Sauvignon Blanc - again a no brainer.
Other days of the week I enjoy selecting from my stock on CT - what variety/bland will we have, then what wine and vintage? Should I take oldest, or latest I’ve bought so if we like it I can get more? Will a wine get better with age or should I drink it now? What’s the back up if it’s corked/oxidised/over the hill/don’t like…
So not having to think about what wine to have one or two nights a week is relaxing.
Perhaps this thought should be in the Guilty Wine Secrets, except why feel guilty about having a wine we both enjoy and is a perfect food match?
PS - I don’t think so…
