Shared a bottle of the Pillitteri Cabernet Sauvignon Ice Wine last Sunday: delicious.
You’ve peaked too soon @Inbar, go back in mid January and you’ll get the ice wine half price ! Every single year
Not in Luton: we must buy it all before Christmas.
Yep, picked up a bottle of cab sauv ice wine as described by @peterm above for a princely sum of £3.99 on the bin end table a while ago.
I’m clearly new to this game!!
I also picked up a couple of bottles of this over the weekend.
I had a bottle of Austrian Riesling Icewine a few months ago. It was gorgeous. Looking forward to seeing how this compares.
Ooh! thanks for the tip, @winechief!
Still haven’t opened my De Bortoli one, but looking forward to enjoying it at some point over the Christmas period. Will have a look at the Lehmann one too!
Took a trip to get the winter range a couple of weeks ago. @inbar somehow I managed to pick up the vidal rather than the riesling! I did have both last year and hugely preferred the riesling but i’ll taje the reduced tip for January to get the correct bottle!
- The 2013 Montalcino riserva was delicious - Very perfumed after a 2 hour decant, sour cherry city!
- The listrac medoc was dire - Absolutely nothing to it
- We also got the Grand Cru Pinot Gris which was the first actual Pinot Gris I liked…sat somewhere between a typical alsace riesling and a gewurz. Absolutely delicious.
We’ve still got a few two open including the Rasteau.
Oh! I eyed this one - but as our accumulated wine-related expenses were already beyond the £100 mark (I stocked up for a coming party), and somehow I managed to convince the hubby that we really do need the Margaux and the Icewine - I didn’t go for it.
Wonder if there will be some left in January…?!
@inbar - It was about £9
It didn’t jump out of the glass immediately but 30 mins after I came back to it (whilst I was cooking and xmas decorating simultaneously) it really opened up!
I had this at the weekend. It smelled of pineapple weed. I agree it was very tasty.
I just drank last year’s Vidal, and it was better than I remembered it, so you may be all right (I bought another, which I wasn’t expecting to).
Is this the official street term…?
It’s that little plant that grows on pavements.
Life is just one long school!
I shall be sniffing the pavements now, for a PG simulation!
Ah yes! I recognise it now! And it does have a very distinctive smell.
Apparently it is edible…
I think I had it at l’enclume! They made some sort of jelly out of it!
