I’m going to start a brand new feature – Wednesday Wine of the Week
This may end up being more than just Wednesdays, given my love for the stuff, but lets pretend I’m not a lush.
The Wednesday wine this week is:
Tempranillo grapes are a the main grape used in Spain for Rioja, so have that deep red, full bodied earthy characteristic that makes Spanish reds so good. It has none of the sweetness and fruit of a Cab Sav, or the tang of a Shiraz – Temps are awesome wines and this one is pretty good. It wasn’t cheap (not an every day wine, but given that this is Wednesday, lets pass on that statement) but it’s way better than average – distinctly palatable 🙂
Oooo loving the new layout over here once again!
And I definitely think you should make wine recs a weekly thing. I am mostly a white drinker, but that’s mostly because I have never been good at picking out a decent red for myself. This sounds good. And I just learned more about red wine in this short post than I ever knew before!
I found the blue one made the text a little unreadable – now I’m in a meh with the standard templates – might have to go to the paid version..
I shall indeed do Wine Wednesday then – especially if you’re learning a little about red wine in the process – you might not really drink it, but imagine the kudos you’ll get when you start extolling the virtues of an average Pinot Noir over a decent Cab Sav..;)
