Apologies for the recent radio silence, my dear readers. There's often much more on my Facebook page
I could make excuses about technogy problems, but the fact is, I've been revisiting old favourites, writing too much about wine for others, and sadly, drinking some rather uninspiring wines.
But today was different - and not a moment too soon.
Thank you to the dear friend who carried this gold medal winning Rhône gem from Rasteau.
A Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre blend from an appellation formerly known for rather rustic wines, La Domelière is full, rich and full of spice and blackberry flavours. I love it.
I love how wine connects us to friends and places. Wines like this do it best.
Please share your own reviews of surprising or pleasing wines on our Facebook page, or let me know if there's something I should be sampling via Twitter
And medal winner or not, if you're proud of a wine you make or supply, and want to share it with my readers, here or in the sites I write for, feel free to submit samples.
