I actually just checked out a basket today, albeit for May delivery…
These two as I wanted to stay on the mailshot for future Once and Future releases… and because it was discussed here… and because I bought tickets for the dinner with the winemaker… and because the last one I had was delicious
You’ve got some tasty treats in that basket.
I’ve always enjoyed Meerlust’s Rubicon, but used to visit Cape Town frequently and got used to paying rather less than we do over here. As a result I find the price harder to swallow than the wine! A case of illogical bias which reduces my enjoyment.
That Bandol does look tempting. I’m visualising sucking the last tender bits of Lamb from the bones of a nice rack whilst sipping that and being slightly ashamed of the state my wine glass is in from grubby fingers.
*2x Beaujolais for TWS Taste
*2x Kadarka for @szaki1974 guerrilla taste
*Vin Jeune which has been on the wishlist since @Herbster alerted me to the Jura range currently available
*Pouillé Fumé as recommended by @robertd from the press tasting
*Sherry as recommended by just about the entire world
*My favourite Muscat to go with asparagus, which I anticipate being in the farmers market imminently
Yes, I think US winemakers are required to put the specific ABV on the bottle. But I also read (somewhere, not sure where!) that it’s often at least half a degree less than the real ABV… how one reconciles both statements is a mystery to me.
