Weekend drinking thread 3rd to 5th February 2023

To kick things off ( although it may need merging, mind ) this weekend here…

…a Rias Baixas ‘Albarino D Fefinanes’ 2021, Palacio de Fefinanes.

At 12.5% ABV one can’t help but think this might be brisker and leaner than previous vintages tried in recent years, and it is. White flowers, orchard fruit and a salty, sea breeze, character on the super fresh nose. Similar notes on the bracingly fresh and invigorating palate, but with good depth of flavour all the same, and a strong lees and mineral character on the refreshingly lengthy finish. A lovely example of its type and very good value too ( on a 25% off a mixed six offer from Waitrose ).

It was spot-on with tonight’s, simple, griddled sardines (x4), tomato salad and flatbread dinner too. Needless to say, I’m a happy-chappy right now :smiley:

So, what’s in your glass this weekend ?
