  • Christmas Day tipple no. 1, D.R.G. Shiraz from Barossa Valley, 2016 - big black and beautiful! Deep indigo ink pouring into the glass, the centre so black no colour can penetrate. Jumping out of the glass from the outset 👃 blackcurrants, tobacco, leather, vanilla, cloves
At first taste 👅 blackberries and winter red berries, vanilla and black pepper
🏁 mid length finish
.
After 1.5 hours decanted 👃 developed to blackberries and moss, oak and vanilla with a lingering hint of the leather
👅 kept the blackberries but smoother, the oakiness penetrating more and clove spice coming through at the end
🏁 stunningly long, lingering, deliciously velvety and smooth
🍷
Could not get enough of this! And it’s got a price tag to match the quality. At full price £40 it’s not everyone’s ‘affordable’ wine, but it certainly is worth it! However, as a @nakedwines Angel you can get your hands on this at a fabulous discount, £17!! Now that’s good value! Incredible craftsmanship from one of the world’s absolute dynamo winemakers. Do not let this go past you before it sells out!

  • Christmas Day Tipple no. 3 and my #infrontofthechristmastree shot: Taylor’s Late Bottled Vintage 2013 Port. Gorgeous!
🍷
This was the year my nephew was born. I’ve given my brother and sis-in-law a bottle of this a couple of years ago for him to open on his own 18th. When I bought it the shop assistant informed me the year was not anything exceptional for the winemakers so not many made a vintage for this year. Fair enough. So I was then delighted to be informed by my partner-in-drinking Mrs LDN_Wine who stumbled across this in @morrisons whilst doing (one of) our Christmas food order. I was COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY when she told me it was on offer for less than a tenner! Get in!
💪🏼
Similarly, was blown away by the taste. This is excellent value port! Smooth and silky and goes fantastically well with pigs in blankets. Yum yum yum yum in our tums! Cheers!

  • Experimented doing a mini vertical yesterday with some nice affordable French PN from outside Burgundy.
🍷
The 2015 was much better than the 2016, which was fairly sharp and needed longer to open. Both would still do well to stay in the bottles for several more years, but already the 2015 showed where this wine will go. The colour of the older wine had started to soften and rust, whilst the younger was considerably darker, more crimson. The 2015 tasted of soft raspberries and some mocha, whilst the 2016 had a much more tannic, alcoholic taste of unripe cherries and cranberries. It’ll be a lot smoother in a couple of years!
🍷
Overall verdict: 2015 showed better characteristics but both bottles are far too young, require further patience, and I hope to try again in a few years and see how they’ve evolved. Still, not bad plonk for under £9 from @laithwaites.wine

  • It’s FRIIIIYYYAAAAAYYYYY!
❤️
*FINALLY* got round to opening the Chateau Potensac 2013 found in Lidl a few months ago for about half the price it should have been. Opened with friends on a trip to Bristol.
🍷
If you love wine which makes you think, which requires you to sit up and pay attention and mull it over, then this is a great bottle to open. Still young, I’ve got a couple more of these I’m keeping for another 10 years or so to see how they develop. It had some fantastic notes emanating from the outset, although the nose needed time to develop. I also made the mistake of not decanting, so it didn’t open up the way I was expecting it to. Nonetheless, brilliant pour, silky smooth and long, dried red fruits marries nicely with a faint earthiness in the middle. This should grow nicely with decanting/breathing, and a few more years laid down. Very pleased!
🍇
PS @lidluk currently running their French wine tour at the moment with some absolute STONKERS available. Get down there.

  • Big Black Reds - ‘tis the season!
🍷
It’s been a while since I’ve had such a big red! This Baciato 2015 had a Colour which was almost black, taste of raisins, bramble and a light black pepper spice to the end. Absolute stunner Salento/Puglian offering and literally awesome example of negroamaro appassimento (where some of the grapes are left on the vine to dry and added giving it a mad concentration of juice, to an already juicy grape because of all the sunshine the region gets) - intense and demands your attention, you better give it!
☀️
What’s your fave big red? Do you, like me, drink Big Reds year round, or only when the nights draw in and the weather turns cooler?

  • What a “pfaffl”... 😜
.
Tried this Grüner Veltliner from the Pfaffl winery - European Winery of the Year back in 2016 - and I’ve had a GV from them a couple of years ago. My memory of it from then was one of crisp, fresh minerality, a long finish, lovely stone fruit notes.
🍇
Sadly, this 2017 pour didn’t quite match up to that memory. Shorter on the finish, a little ‘zingy’ on the palate and the minerality was lacking. Still, had I not been comparing to another year, this was still a delightful wine for great value. Less than £7, served at 10-12 degs, it was a great pour. Love the robustness and balance, v tasty 👌🏼

  • First time I had dinner with my friend @nmratnam we had probably a little bit too much to drink. So this time we were a bit more measured, and stuck to just a delicious Brunello Di Montalcino and a 2000 CNDP from Chateaux Telegraph.
🕺🏼
Italian wines are not my forte but they are a particular passion of his, so I asked for a lesson. This was delightfully floral, earthy, and smooth - more like a Bordeaux from the 80s than a 2009 Cab!! Ok that’s an exaggeration, there was still a lot of youthfulness in it and some spice and black cherry but the depth and length were astounding.
🌷
I’ve never had Chateauneuf du Pape before. I’ve always avoided it in supermarkets because I knew it wouldn’t be the best value - so clearly I’m now spoiled for life! This was a fantastic bottle, floral and delicate, an complex glass but with serious drinkability. Smooth on the tannins and a perfect bottle to have alone or with lightly roasted meats. V v v enjoyable!

  • Greek wine from @lidluk
.
I’ve started playing a new game when I go to Lidl for wine. Look for a single bottle (normally at the back of a shelf behind other stuff) with no price label, and see what it comes up as at the till and how it tastes when I get it home. It’s like Russian roulette with Lidl Vino, and so far I’ve won each time.
.
I was intrigued by this lonely bottle and was a little sceptical when it came up less than £5. But I took it home all the same, and boy was I glad!!
🍷
The deep black crimson colour is deceptive, as the nose is bright and youthful. On the palate nice and smooth, although still obviously young and energetic with the tannins. The thing I like about Greek wine is that it always displays interesting fruit notes such as açai berries, a sweet-and-saltiness not quite replicated in other countries, but the softness of a merlot at the same time.
🍇
Delicious wine, and I’ve now seen it fully stocked in @lidlwinecellar, so I guess I just got the last of the previous batch! Great fun wine!
