I’m still full of cold, but enjoyed a walk through Sheffield Park, admiring its autumn colours. Beautiful! On the way back home we stopped at a favourite spot – the Griffin Inn pub in Fletching – for a light lunch. I had (delicious) Rye scallops with a glass of 2016 Planeta’s La Segreta Bianco, and the husband had a ham hock terrine with his favourite tipple – a pint of Harvey’s Sussex Best Bitter. He was positively floating and uncommunicative for the first few sips!..
This evening we’re having ostrich steaks with roast new spuds, so decided to open this 2016 Brazin:
Not a shy wine by any means, but actually much more balanced than I anticipated. Its vibrant blackcurrant, dark cherry, baking spices and chocolate notes managed to pierce through the haze of my cold, which is a plus. Or maybe it’s the cough mixture note on the finish that makes it feel quite therapeutic?
Happy Saturday, all!
