The Devil’s Chardonnay. Concha y Toro, Reserva, 2012, Chile. La Farra Prosecco Spumante. The Reluctant Cannibals

20131004-094906.jpgGulp, all I had chilled was this number, a C from The Devil’s Cellar in Chile.

A blend of grapes from the Casablanca, San Antonio (62%) and Limari (38%) areas.

Despite my ABC prejudices, this wasn’t bad: buttery, slightly oaked structure, well presented, rich takeaway.

Ian & Jean served this at Ian’s launch of The Reluctant Cannibals in the Winding Stair bookshop.

Very dry, effervescent bang of an Apple Orchard in the mouth, very moreish. If the book is as good as this it’s a runaway, buy it now.

San Giorgio Prosecco NV. “Armoniose Emozioni”

San Giorgio

Dad brought this some time ago and it had been sitting silently on the top shelf in the fridge – a delicious aperitif for The Barranore’s last supper and we were also joined for dinner by Amy & Ross.

100% Glera (the EU name for Prosecco) picked from vines near Treviso.

Pale grass colour, lively nutty nose, taste of aniseed and fruit, very crisp clean fizz.

“Harmonious Emotions” for sure. More info here.
