Day 4 of nominating myself to do 12 wine reviews in 12 days. I don’t feel so good. I committed to the day-time margaritas like a greyhound to a rabbit. Complete with… wait for it…… popping candy rims! We were so sure that we’d invented this and we were going to keep it a big secret so no-one else could ever enjoy it and it would be ours and ours only (I already told you I’m an arsehole) but I just googled it and it's already a thing. You’re welcome. Enjoy. No idea how I hadn’t heard of it though. Highly recommended.
The good news is that I managed to fit 2 days into the one day yesterday by having a 5pm nap. When I say ‘nap’, I obviously mean I passed out. The kind of pass out you do after you’ve been at the races. Fully clothed. Earrings in. On top of the bed.
I woke up at 11pm like it was a brand new day. Phew! Just in the nick of time to enjoy the slow cooked body of christ before it was no longer offensive to the Christians.
'If I’m having dinner, I may as well crack a red’ Thought my thoughts. The first bottle I chose was the Victorian Cabernet Sauvignon, 2018. It was surprisingly absolutely disgusting. Maybe it was all the pre-exisiting tequila and cointreau that hadn’t finished leaking out of my skin, but it's very rare that I can't drink a red before bed.
This was the Carol Baskin of wines. I couldn’t put myself through it. I poured the whole glass back into the bottle. A bit like anal, I’ll try it one more time just to make sure I really don't like it, but for now, this bottle can only be given a 1/10. Highly don’t
It’s so handy having options, so I cracked the next one. The 2018 Shiraz by Grounded Cru. Sounds relevant. My palette is satisfied. I actually can't remember much about this wine, but it must have been pretty good cause I gave it a pretty impressive nudge until around 2am when I could Houseparty no longer.
Based on the experience that came with this wine, I’m going to give it an 8/10. I think I’ll give myself the night off.
