Sunday morning bottle cleanup up after a 6-7 hour grazing lunch with friends.
Pommery Summertime NV
Jean Luc Mader 2014 Riesling
Eva Fricke 21012 Keidrich
Di Filippo Grechetto 2013 and 2015
Eidos de Padrinan Albariño 2012
Jamsheed Madame Chard 2016
Château la Sauvageonne 2015 Rose.
Rockford Black Shiraz Disgorged Sept 1996.
Domaine Jacques Cacheux Vosne-Romanee 2001
One non wine drinker enjoyed the Jose Cuervo.

My picks were the Eva Fricke, the Rockford and the Cacheux. The 20 year since disgorged Rockford opened with a very strong aged Shiraz bouquet- too strong and overpowering but settled down. The Cacheux was very special and went well with swordfish off the Japanese Konro bbq and some very slow cooked caponata.
Lunch with friends is always special.

Warm in Adelaide tonight. This Alsatian blend of Pinot Gris, Traminer, Riesling and Sylvaner is spot on for the weather. This is just so quaffable...

First play with the Coravin system. Domaine LeFlaive Bourgogne 2011 as a trial wine. The remaining bottle will go into the Vintec for later assessment. There is a 1/2 bottle of Gaja Barbaresco 2012 under assessment too. The things I do in the name of science... I met with the Coravin team yesterday, there is a screw cap adaptor on the way which is very exciting.

The Gaja is a good 10 years into the realm of infanticide...

Would love to see if the screw cap adapter works as good.
I watched their video and there is a bottle sleeve that you need to put in, what is that for?

The adaptor is basically a screw cap with a high tech silicone compound in the centre. Very simple to use. Not sure on the bottle sleeve... The system is pretty straight forward, insert the needle through the cork (or Screw Cap adaptor), inject Argon gas and displace (pour) wine into the glass.

This would be prefect to taste the wine instead of open a bottle each time!
