22nd, goodness it’s my birthday in a month! When I was in year 7 and 8, what’s that around 12? I used to have pool parties to celebrate my birthday, in September! Either it’s climate change or I’ve got boring but you won’t catch me jumping in a freezing pool this year…I’ll probably be in a chilly lake instead, wakeboarding #nevergrowup
I have two reds to tell you about, that for once are easy to go and buy if you should so wish. One is a Waitrose number and the other, M&S.
Waitrose first, a cheeky buy from Mother Fenn on Sunday to go with some delicious roast lamb.
This red is described as being aged to perfection ‘exclusively for Waitrose.’ It certainly tastes like it’s been well cared for. I enjoyed it immensely; deep fruity flavours and a robust finish, it paired with the lamb beautifully. If it’s good enough for Waitrose it’s good enough for me.
This is a seriously sophisticated red. It was actually a gift from my lodger, I say gift but I sort of asked for it in return for letting his girlfriend stay for a couple of nights, I’m quite mean like that. Didn’t he do well though, it’s a fabulous red and tastes phenomenal. I’d say it’s quite complex and there are notes of scrumpy (in a good way) then you get that very french full-bodied va va voom that real malbec wines offer, I’d buy it again.
