As we appear to be moving slowly out of lockdown, I thought now might be a good time to reflect on the best bottles we’ve enjoyed over the last three or four months.
If there’s one consolation to having been stuck at home, it seems that most of us have used it as an excuse to crack open some pretty special wines, whether at TWSTaste ‘bring a bottle’ events or part of Weekend Drinking discussions!
So what’s been your best bottle(s) of lockdown?
For me, it’s probably been this:
Which we opened for the Aromatic Whites virtual tasting. It was one of those wines that as soon as you sniffed it, let alone took a sip, you knew it was special. A kind of ‘eureka’ moment, and every sip was the same.
(The 2010 is sold out but the 2017 is available and I’m sorely tempted to put some in Reserves…)
Probably last week’s rosé was a close second:
I’ve just never tasted a wine like this before. It was weird and savoury yet fresh and moreish… and one of those wines that demanded attention. So glad I had an excuse to buy some.
