2017 mullineaux old vines white - gorgeous. everything i love about big waxy chenin with a bit more. RobS - you need this. I need more.
1997 Rockford Cabernet Sauvignon - Smoky funky cab fruit. Good acidty to balance. Bit of burnt sugar. Tannins integrated. Not the most complex cab but a nicely aged example. Wouldnt hold much longer.
2014 La Stoppa Trebbiolo Frizzante. A rare clean bottle. Mrs. VeV loved it. Funky chilled frizzante red. Was wonderful out of mason jars with ice cubes (the horror) over a game or two of bocce.
2006 Antonio Vallana Spanna Campi Raudii. All the nebbiolo notes, played an octave higher. Well done. Will never hit the heights of good barolo, but a lovely drink with smoked pork and bortolotti beans.
La Stoppa make a white Malvasia frizzante that is an absolute steal
