I’ve not written about wine previously, mainly because I feel slightly intimidated by the knowledge of those who regularly take an interest in it. I came across a great wine in the last week that was particularly memorable, so thought I’d start keeping tabs on those bottles that have caught my interest.
The staff at my local Wine Rack in Pitshanger Lane are always extremely friendly and helpful. Last weekend I asked for a good wine for afternoon drinking and/or a barbeque and I was recommended The ‘Crux’ New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, which was on for half price at £5.98 from £11.99 (an offer that lasts until 09/06/2009).
It came highly recommended on personal experience by the staff and Wine Rack staff always seem to be highly knowledgeable. The taste was very fruity and citrus and it was very drinkable. The citrus seemed to work particularly well with the lemon I used to dress the barbequed asparagus. Definitely one I’ll be drinking more often!
