This was the house white offering with a Rewarding Times 59€ voucher.
Rewarding indeed, a super meal in pop-up surroundings.
Good food complemented by this semi-dry fruity number.

Produced in Cerignola near a very special part of the world – Gargano.
A concise list in the Linden Tree dining room at Carton House, this was chosen on the basis of perceived value in an otherwise expensive cluster. Big whack of vanilla, fruit and smooth alcohol delivery.
A fruity flavoursome, lots of lush redcurrants in a firmish body. Rich colour.
Nice write up on Arnaud here:
Typical big fruity juicy Barbera.
Welcome Corporate gift.
Mellow Merlot from Down under, surprisingly good.
Brian McGuigan’s signed a lot of bottles before he retired!
Punchy spicy belt from this, lots of Cherry fruit, plum colour. A nice find. From Laura’s stock.
60% Grenache, 40% Syrah
A night on the tiles in Nottingham: Cocktail Aperitifs in the BoilerMaker followed by a BYOB meal at U.Canteen in the excellent company of Tony and Olivia
The Bardolino was light and went well with the spicy food. Slightly more interesting was the Villa Maria Riesling which cut through the sauces.

Freshly cut grass, acid tang. Good party wine on a hot Summer’s day.
