This evening, I poured an ample glass of this and ambled out into the garden. Finally the evenings are warm enough to do that comfortably.
After a wander around to see how the Triffids were coming along, I settled on a bench and just listened to the birds doing their late-Spring business while I sipped away.
This was the latest in a series of Gruners I bought in order to get to know this trendy grape. Each had the characteristic dry, peppery character to it and some similarities in the style of fruit (grapefruit?) but delivered in quite different ways.
With this one, those flavours came atop a mouthful of rich, buttery fruit - much rounder than the other gruners I’ve tried and a very enjoyable result.
I responded in the only sensible way: case of 6 to reserves. I really want to see how this one ages.
