Goodness we like this - a lot.


#142

Olaf and I are onto glass 2


#143

:scream: As a fellow Italian, all I can say is…

This goes very nicely with some pate and cheese and biscuits. Anyone else want to suggest food matches, or give a mark out of 10?


#144

And it is so versatile too. Great apero, good with pate and cheese and also now after the meal with cantucci. Can’t think of a more flexible wine!


#145

I want to try it with cantucci now but can recommend shortbread very highly


#146

Impressed by the comments re the sherry. Plan to drink it Xmas eve. How long will it last after opening?


#147

Sherry truly is one of the best value wines


#148

9 and 9 - We may finish this bottle tonight - what a revelation. We bought two more for Christmas - but they may not make it!


#149

Couple of weeks in the fridge easily if past Christmases are anything to go by!


#150

Depends how many with you. Maybe 5 mins🤣


#151

This is good to know - thanks.


#152

It’s a 9.99 here.


#153

8 and 8 here. Leaving the best till last, this is delicious, complex and moreish. And definitely great value :+1:


#154

Another 9 from us… maybe even a 10!

Wow, three very different wines, but can you pick a favourite?!

  • The white - malagousia
  • The red - zinfandel
  • The sherry

Haha - Olaf has just remembered that decimal points are allowed (it’s been 30 mins at least!) so he completely agrees with you.


#156

My vote is skewed as I didn’t taste the sherry which am now really looking forward to.


#157

Goodness, look at that early lead for the sherry! So pleased you liked it


#158

So - I think the white was up against some unfair competition. It is one of the nicest I’ve tasted but it is was a flyweight put in the heavyweight division methinks.


#159

What a great night! Thanks to every single one of you for joining us tonight - it was such a pleasure to try these wines with you. :heart: I think we’re off for another glass of the sherry! Here’s to a wonderful Christmas of great wine. :smiley:


#160

Yep it’s been a good one. Merry Christmas one and all.
