We are SUPER EXCITED to be able to offer you guys a real treat!! We will be going live with Jody from Bogle Vineyards over in Clarksburg, California tasting 4 phenomenal wines!! We will be taking a look around one of our, and your, favourite wineries, and Jody will be sharing her passion and some fascinating insight into how they do things over on the West Coast.
The wines are delivered to your door, with matched cheeses and we then taste it together online, we will be live streaming on Facebook and Instagram LIVE and back on Zoom too!! Banging wines and 2 pillocks hosting...or 1 pillock and Barry...
The 'portions' are 100ml 'Tasters' and 500ml 'Carafes' or the imperious 'Full Bottle'. Pick the right size for you, your budget and how many guests you have.
Without further ado...here are the wines for this week;
- First up we have the 2017 Viognier. A class act - perfect, almost oily, Viognier texture gives weight to the apricot and pear on the palate, before drifting into a stunning floral finish. Also a pretty great palate cleanser for the heavy squad to follow.
- Following that is 2017 Petite Sirah. The OG Bogle grape that was the first they planted some 50 years ago - big and potent with flavours of leather, vanilla and plum jam.
- Next is one of our all time favourites the 2017 Old Vine Zinfandel. One of California's best loved and most underrated grapes, and a smash hit on our shelves, since we first got our hands on it. 40 - 60 year old vines...and you know what that means...silky, rich and with a tobacco finish.
- We have to finish with our wine of the year, the Bogle Phantom (2016). This wine is actually a bland of all 3 of the above wines! Primarily the Petite Sirah, with a lick of the Zinf and some Viognier to add to the already unctuous mouthfeel and texture. An instant smash hit that sells out every time it hits our shelves. The addition of 24 months in American Oak makes this wines something very special indeed!!

Serious wines, for (not very) serious folk...Should be an absolute spanker!!
