You are in the wrong job you know so much about everything your talents never cease to amaze me.

When are you getting the job in the Spanish Bull Ring shoveling up Bulls S**t.

Hi Sleepybobby,

I can't wait to hear what you've been drinking...can I have some too?

As for me, I bought a ten litre bag-in-box of red from the wine shop as we were having friends around on Saturday night (who work with me in the shop).

I now have a 9 litre bag in box to drink as they all decided to have a beer!

Any suggestions as to what I do with it? (Clean please...):lol

Jane

Charles Black Chenin Blanc Viognier 2005 - South Africa

Just lately I've been craving white wine and last night the wine I opened to go with some chicken was corked. Hubby and I argued about it all night but it was - there were no fruity aromas coming through, just a "woody, musty" smell that told me all was not right. My husband is actually typical of many customers who don't recognise a wine being "corked".

So he battled on with it while I opened something else...:lol

Anyway, I went to Tesco's today and picked up this bottle for about 8.

It was very fruity, quite dry and delicious to drink. The difference was how fresh it was compared to the wine we opened last night.

Chenin Blanc and Viognier are two of my favourite grape varieties and I loved this wine. We drank it with grilled pork and roasted veg...Mmmmmmmmmm:b

Jane I've got a husband who can never tell when a wine is corked ! I am now the official wine taster

In September when we went to the restaurant in PP square, the one next to the church,that we were talking about yesterday ..Los ??? we had a corked bottle .The owner took one sniff of the cork and very quickly replaced it without any fuss. I always feel embarassed to send a bottle back, which is silly I know, as there is nothing worse than to have your meal spoilt by a horrible tasting wine. Am I correct that 1 in 5 bottles are corked?

The restaurant was a first for us this year and excellent ..I just can never remember the name of it :\

Ooops! Finally gave in to the champagne last night - started at 5.30 and finished at 2am! Felt great at the time, but somehow during the night, I had accepted tickets to go and see Charlton this afternoon. The match has started and Im typing this - so guess who didnt make it! Also, can anyone tell me why I dreamt of spiders all night long??!! :x

Ahhh Jiggy,
We obviously have the same great taste in many things.....music....great footie teams and wine too. You can't beat the old Yellow Label Wolf Blass.....or any Wolf Blass for that matter....or any good Aussie Shiraz or Cab Sav:lol .
drank alot Wyndham Est Bin 555 Shiraz myself this Christmas....love the stuff. Had a fab Rioja on Christmas day Summa reserve 98...really good also enjoyed a Chilean Adobe which was good too .
Watched Spurs lose to the reds while enjoying a bott of McGuigans Gold lable....great wine terrible result! We wos robbed! We still have the Eufa Cup:b
Particularily enjoyed my wine this Christmas while listening to the "Love" Beatles album and Oasis "stop the clocks" which came from Santa .
Anyway hope everyone I know here has a wonderful 2007!
