I love heading down to my neighbour’s on a Sunday evening, there’s sure to be a plentiful supply of Dark Horse Chardonnay @darkhorsevineyard as Karen is practically addicted. It might not be my usual choice but it’s actually pretty yummy. This is the 2017 vintage and it’s as buttery and rich as all the others. Also, who loves stemless wine glass? Feeling particularly festive (for once) as they’ve been busy decorating this weekend 🎄 what’s everyone else up to this Sunday? #feelingfestive#gohardonchard#chardonnay#californianwine

“Pinot Noir can be a diva, or some say chameleon. PN is very sensitive to site and climate, but also there is a large diversity of clones planted in the UK which in itself can produce dramatic variation in how the bunches look and the resulting juices taste.” - @greatrixbrad 🍾 Read more from this interview on my latest blog >>>link in bio 🥂 #pinotnoir

Accidentally opened another #italianwine this #winewednesday 🍇 and this time, I decided to take the photo with it open just so you can all see these reviews are legit! This evening’s victim could never have hidden its Italian roots. ‘Voglio invecchiare con te’ it cried, as I pulled out the cork. So I poured it in a glass and breathed in the handsome aromas of the Tuscan sunshine, leather and spice and black fruit. Before I get carried away, this is 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet and 25% Merlot. It’s from Roccastrada in Tuscany, on a little farm where they don’t make a tonne of wine, but enough so that a few lucky bottles make their way to the UK with Rob from @jacksonandseddon 🐶 this wine hasn’t seen any oak, it’s their entry level, go-to reassuring red that you just need every so often. It’s £20, there are 12 left...what more can I say! I had it with some venison stew, it was lovely.

This time of year is great for so many things being in season. Truffles, Oysters, Mussels, all of my favourite things that get along delightfully well with most things that sparkle. So, imagine my excitement when I saw @kettlechipsuk had brought out a limited edition SPARKLING WINE and TRUFFLED CHEESE flavoured crisp. It’s like Crispmass has come early, they’re addictively delicious. Kettle have stuck true to their English roots and chosen Winbirri vineyards sparkling wine as the truffle’s noble friend. It’s from Norfolk and a beautiful example of an English Sparkling. I tried the 2014 vintage and it’s creamy with a wonderfully high acidity, lemon curd and brioche notes. I think these might just be the best crisps of all time, keep your eyes peeled for them! 🥂#ad #englishsparklingwine#crispmass

Chaque jour découvrez un de mes coups de cœur 2019
Day 10 USA 🇺🇸 Aujourd’hui, rendez-vous sous le soleil californien -
Antiqv2s du latin Antiqvvs, signifie « qui existait autrefois »,« portant les marques du temps ». La Syrah est plantée dans la partie supérieure du vignoble de Gary. Ce vignoble mûrit très tard, allant parfois jusqu'à début novembre. Beaucoup plus influencé par le style du nord du Rhône.
La syrah aurait été introduite dans la vallée du Rhône en France par les croisés à leur retour de la Perse antique, ou par les légions romaines de l'empereur Probus revenant de Syracuse en Sicile. -
Sa robe est sombre et intense
Son nez de fruits noirs et rouges très confits avec du poivre blanc et une intensité de cerise
Sa bouche est charnue, grasse, profonde avec une bonne acidité.
Sa finale est supportée par des tanins riches et puissants. -
Etonnez votre palais en le dégustant accompagné une entrecôte de bœuf de Charolles et une purée de pommes de terre -
🎄🎄🎄Pour ces fêtes de fin d’année, soyez fous et surtout régalez vous !

This was another great find in my 2019 wine journey.
Carinus Family Vineyards Syrah 2018 could certainly benefit from a couple more years in the bottle, but I could not resist opening to taste this Stellenbosch Syrah any longer.
Dark fruit, cherry with a bit of spice. Deep purple in colour.
This wine really impressed, particularly drinking it so young.
Another winner for the Christmas season I would think.
I suggest messaging @carinusfamilyvineyards
If you are looking to buy.. This wine is not easy to come by, but is worth the search
Uncork rating 90pts
