Another great Christmas was enjoyed this year. Traditional Turkey with all the trimmings was served Christmas Day along with the Kuhling Gillott’s Scheurebe Kabinett… thankfully renamed from mouth-filling Bodenheimer Heitersbrunnchen Scheurebe Kabinett… making from an easier time around the table! The last remaining bottles from a case of 1998 Savigny les Beaunes 1er Cru, Burgundy, were enjoyed by all. The fruity bite from Pinot Noir offering a great balance with the meat.
Boxing Day saw an evening meal of Beef served with all the usual trimmings (including some very tasty sausages wrapped in bacon). The old faithful Highfield Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand provided the fruity tang along with Rutherford Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon from California – the red stood up very well against the beef and gravy and put all into a good party mood.
The bottle of Ramos Pinto Collector Port was kept out of the hoards way… to be enjoyed at a quieter moment with the remaining mine pies.Share and Enjoy:
