We are not joining you for the sherry. As a gastroenterologist am concerned about my liver BUT did order a bottle so will watch the comments with interest.
Yes glass at the ready. And can I just say trout and stir fry pak choi an excellent match for the white. Smoothed away the excess acidity I was starting to get at the end of the glass.
just poured it
Colour is lovely isn’t it
Sorry we have not made this one but we are in Madeira for a week. I have the bottles at home so will try them after we get back.
That sound gorgeous, @JayKay! Bodes well for the sprouts, too…
Okay, pour yourself a sherry and let’s have a sniff! For those of you not tasting the sherry - thanks for joining us, and feel free to keep posting about the zinfandel and the malagousia!
Poured and awaiting your comments on what I think is one of our best bargains!
Is there an almondy thing there? Sweet though.
Christmas in a glass. Nuts, figs, marzipan for me.
Olaf gets Figs.
should this be chilled? we weren’t sure
Ooh, yes, like a big bowlful of almonds! I’m enjoying it. Lovely dried fruit too. Smells dry?!
Almond, apple skin, hazelnut, little bit of caramel, raisin, cinnamon
barley sugar and bitter oranges
Overchilled = you can miss out, but chilling lightly brings out the acidity. I think this is personal taste rather than form, personally
We keep our amontillado in our unheated pantry so coolish not cold
Think I need to break out the mince pies!
Ideally, yes. But it’s just as nice not chilled
Marzipan and caramel!
