Got a tempranillo in the limelight. Will post a pic.

The Margaux was lovely. Much drier than I expected. One of those wines that packs punch later on.

I suppose you get what you pay for. I'm in no mood to supply friends and relatives with costly wine when they simply do not appreciate it.

Got the MIL's birthday coming up and a horde are arriving. If the weather is ok, the bbq comes out but they are going to get the best that £5.99 comes from Waitrose.

Phil will give me the nod.

In other news, I am back on the Vigonier trail. Suggestions welcomed.

Not quite lined up for the weekend but just had a delivery from Portugal of the following, so I guess there will be a bit of tasting going on :)


Vidigal Porta 6 Red 2015 - Never tried it but a friend raves about it as an easy drinking wine so its in the cave (and within easy reach)
Terra dAlter Touriga Nacional Red 2014 - another easy drinking wine
Churchill Estates Touriga Nacional Red 2012 - a bit more serious, coming from the Douro and a Port producer.
https://www.wineswithattitude.co.uk/typ ... -2012.html
Casa de Santa Vitória Grand Reserve Red 2014 - this is the one I am much more interested in and plan to give it a year or two before opening.

This was lovely, though probably still a bit young:

Just a few mins from my family home in NZ.

Not tried the Chardonnay, but they used to do a cracking red, Syrah I think. Hawkes Bay traditionally produces very strong punchy whites. Oaky in many cases. Even the Sauvignon Blancs. But my more recent visits I notice it was slightly toned down. How was it?

Porta 6 is quite widely available in Ireland, it's a great drop for the money :thumbup:

It was pretty oaky and powerful - which I like. Is it the Bullnose Syrah you're thinking of? That's a great wine, though the Coleraine Bordeaux blend is probably even better. They do a Gamay which I like as well.

It was one of the (many) great places I visited in HB in 2009 :thumbup:

Good work Frankster.

:thumbup:

I'm not going back through 100 odd pages, I'm sure I posted about this before.
Used to drink it in Fallon & Byrne a lot when I lived in town.

I'll post you some stinky blue cheese to go with. Way out of date.

;) :lol:

Do you know the details for eurocave repair

My unit has a fault thanks to a power cut.

I really did not need this at this time.

Cheers might forego the repair and lug it to France later as is anyway.

I think that's the guy who sold it to me anyway :lol:
