@Aspedini, wow, that’s a spectacular wine for a Monday but after your dry spell, not only well deserved but a great way to start again without, hopefully, any detrimental effects the next day !
@MikeFranklin I’m sure you’ll get some great weather in due course and. no doubt, be able to get some good hiking in.
@Alchemist, maybe solace can be found in some Swedish herring ?
Dinner turned out well here…
.,.but some of you might be thinking where’s the sauerkraut ! As much as I like it I’ve never actually made it so stayed in my comfort zone. I’ve posted about the ‘Brandluft’ Riesling 2017 from Boeckel before but, in a nutshell, it’s a really good example of its type and great VFM. Ripe orchard fruits and lime, a touch of kerosene on the nose, lovely weight of flavour with fresh acidity providing balance and cut to the fruit.
All in all, a very satisfying way to spend the time, on what is usually, my least favourite day of the week !
