A change to regular Saturday LIVE tasting vibes...Firstly its available before Monday at 3pm...too many folk missing out, people starting to look to the future and beyond lockdown...we aren't f**king Berghain, stop acting like your Almost Famous circa 2010. Idiots. Also we have added the 'Carafe' option to the Saturday LIVE Tasting portfolio...makes sense is think.
Still starting at 6pm tho... :)
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...
As we say, we are applying the 'Prestige' format for this tasting - the 'portions' are 100ml 'Tasters' and 500ml 'Carafes' too as people start to tone down the lockdown alcoholism. Or maybe you aren't...? We won't tell you how to live your life!!!
Without further ado...here are the wines for this week;
We kick off with the certified organic Blau Cel from Catalunya - a blend of Xarel- lo and Macabeu. Aromatic and Fresh, perfect with seafood and the summer sun (one day...). Next up we have our first Portuguese wine!!! The Papa Figos by Casa Ferreirinha on the Douro River, a long time house fav, LOADS of bang for your buck, Tempranillo (Tinto Roriz) heavy and a load of grapes you've never heard of with weird Portugeuse names...perfect! We finish with...wait for it....drum roll.....A MALBEC!!! FINALLY! And what a drop...the Kaiken Ultra Malbec from Mendoza in Argentina (obvs). No messing, fruity, tannic and juicy yet savoury...perfection in a glass!!
Serious wines, for (not very) serious folk...Should be an absolute spanker!!
