In addition, I went home to Scotland for the weekend so sent a delivery from The Wine Society. I apologise that these wines aren't available at your local supermarket, but most of them are outstanding examples so I did want to include them. It also meant we shared more bottles and you might see some input from my family.
This one was voted number 1 by Mamma, based on it's full and elegant body, chocolaty and nutmeg long finish and velvety smooth tannin structure. Ironically it was the cheapest wine of the week. It's got lots of lovely black fruit flavours - and it worked as a perfect pairing to a delicious and traditional Scottish Steak Pie meal.
So, as wine weeks go, I think the preparation for my WSET Advanced exam on 22nd November is about as well advanced as it could be - at least at the practical level. Still a LOT of studying to do on the theory, though. I do hope you'll try some or all of these wines. There's such a lot of styles here, I'm sure you'll find something you enjoy.
