This week has been quite uneventful on the wine tasting after last weekend. I did also come down with a 24ish hour virus which didn’t make me all that inspired to have any wine so unfortunately this post will be rather short and sweet. For those of you who missed my review of the red wines I tried at this week’s Wine Essential’s Class you had see my review of them at this blog.
I did make my first purchase for my future wine cellar this week. I went in the shop to browse and ended up coming out with a bottle of 2003 vintage Dom Pérignon. While it was quite a splurge I must resist this little gem for a few years. Any suggestions on what I should save this little gem for?
I also went to Peel Estate Winery yesterday as part of my Wine Essential Course. We had the chance to walk through the vineyard, speak with their senior wine maker Will Nairn, see the winery and finally have a tasting guided by Will of most of their range. There will be a post up on this tour the following Monday.
Hope everyone has had a good weekend! Feel free to leave me recommendations of things you think I should try or potential additions to keep my Dom Pérignon company. Also if anyone is interested I will be meeting with a group of Perth wine bloggers on December 12th to begin our Wine Century Challenge and it is not too late to join us! (Note: we are not attempting to do all 100 wines in a single sitting.)
Until next time!
