Impressed, very different but tons of chunky sediment at the end. 2 bottles left in the local but it's a touch pricey

Last time I opened this thread it was Carl Lewis with 500ml of Fanta Zero, now we're getting sentences like this to describe a drink.

Last night… Malvasia blend from Penedès, there’s some macabeu in there too which is a grape that I’m drinking more and more of


Tonight.. perfectly serviceable Nero D’Avola that a friend brought to my place to have with dinner

Many of these last night - Rum Old Fashioned with Appleton Estate Jamaica Independence Reserve Rum.

Thing of beauty.

Macabeu from Pènedes, full-on reductive nose but opened up really well once it got warmer



But this^^… wasn’t expecting much for the price but it was mad good. Citrus, ginger and spices…if you want orange wine on a budget do not hesitate to pick this up…this is not my house btw..visiting family..

I already take two of the Brand brothers’ wines and this Dornfelder is a new addition … basically a German Carignan. Tastes how it looks- stewed plums and blackberry.
