January wines

A new year and new wines to try. One of the New Year’s resolutions was to buy less and drink more, i.e. drink what’s in the cellar before buying new things. Storage is becoming a bit of trouble, but just like with most wine lovers buying is one of the many delights of being a wine aficionado.

The highlight of the month was trying out Super Tuscan Sondraia. A text book example of how a Bordeaux blend can be expertly crafted in Tuscany. Another perfect wine was Trapiche Malbec Viña Jorge Miralles which once again showed that Argentian Melbec is as a good a s the French original.
