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
