February wines

The month started off with celebrating mum’s 70th birthday with a four course meal cooked by The Man and me was How about lobster bisque, grilled halibut with red wine juice and bits of smoky bacon along with a puree of Jerusalem artichokes, mixed cheeses and last but not least mascarpone pudding with dark chocolate sauce. I think she liked it…

The most value- for-your-money wine of the month was probably Jose Maria da Fonseca Moscatel de Setubal 2007. A small bottle of sticky is still very cheap. Well, that is if you don’t go for Château d'Yquem…A glass of some sweet stuff is usually the icing on the cake after a real nice dinner. More dessert wines for the people.
