Yesterday was a dry evening spent mostly being puzzled by the Bobby Seagull and Eric Monkman programme. An unlikely friendship… Liked it though!
Onwards and upwards, then. Tonight we shall be drinking an Israeli wine I brought with me from my last visit home in May. It’s another unlikely friendship - a 65% Gewürztraminer and a 35% Sauvignon Blanc. I don’t think I tasted this sort of blend before. Both are vinified separately and then blended.
The wine is called D vs G (as in David and Goliath) - as the location of the vinery, in Adulam valley in the Judean Hills, is supposedly where the David and Goliath story happened. The Judean Hills in general is an area producing some really interesting wines, due to elevation and slightly cooler nights. Remains to be seen what we make of it…!
What are you drinking this evening?
