Christmas and New Years wine. The double magnum was a prosecco we won earlier in the year. It was delightful, and shared with many.

Your taking your time...the French one with the Spanish grape(I looked it up🤩) is either roobish or, umm... funked😋.

 

*You'd be proud. I'm advancing  my limited knowledge of wine(open-pour-quaff-quaff again, repeat) by staying at some wineries for the next 5 days way up in woop woop somewhere with names like; Grape Rock Secateurs  and No We Dont Sell Beer and Welcome Please Enter. I might be reading their web pages the wrong way round as I have a new browser but still..they sound interesting.  

Limited if any wireless, so reports will be scratchy till I get back.

 

 Wines to be attempted and then spat out include;Barbera(I'm thinking of a I dream of Jeannie joke which will get me a discount or thrown out) and Petite Mansang, Sylvaner, Fiano, Alvarinho, Tannat, Saperavi, Graciano, Pinotage and a host of others like these that I've never heard of.

Am taking a slab of Margaret River's finest(Colonial IPA and their new Hazy IPA🥰) as back up just in case.

Wife drinks one type...Riesling from Clare+ Eden valleys and will not touch red wine...what could possibly go wrong eh.

The Oz Grenache is the bomb, but The French is good, just different.

Tasted a lot of Margs wines over the last 3 days so I thought I’d pop open something from the other side of the country upon our return. Beautiful drop it is too.

Nice looooong lunch for a birthday that moved to a cheeky game of poker afterwards. Some epic wines.

 

The Gaja was my WOTN. Not all wines shown, will type up a list when I get a chance.

 

The 69 Bredif was as fresh as a daisy. bdaylunch.jpg.7b8836615e5229b20163ec68ab717de5.jpgbdaylunch2.jpg.9d0642dd838365fcfb4aca04ed47adb7.jpgbdaylunch3.jpg.6d1bd001a23e1d5078cbc5ac0dd53c75.jpgbdaylunch1.jpg.4069498deea9c66dac9eeb9a62d85c15.jpg

Gosh, I'm not sure I should post after that epic lunch with wines to die for! Wow.

 

Hosts supplied us with a fruit/cheese platter of local produce and the wine in the pic. Never heard of it or tasted it so it's the first of many I hope.

Boss said it reminded her of apples that'll do.

Lime zest with subtle pepper notes and white flowers with a long dry finish the label states. The finish is dry which is nice.

 

 

More to come tomorrow.
