I just know that we've got two bottles of desert wine from somewhere, and neither of us likes desert wine, usually.
We had a driver with a minibus and five hours to visit as many cellar doors as we could. I think we did six or seven.
We've decided, we quite like wine.

The only time I drink dessert wine is with Christmas pudding :)

A good wine with the right food pairing is a wonderful orgasmic experience :)

There is nothing like a Sauternes with dessert, especially Christmas pudding. Rich and honeyed. The trouble is finding them and affording them. Even half bottles of Ch. Suduiraut cost around £15.
Dessert wines (double S) tend to be expensive

Botrytis! That's a word that comes out of the mist of our wine tasting expedition. Manky, mouldy grapes make great desert wines.
You see I wasn't that inebriated.

Here is what we bought. We could have upgraded to business class if we hadn't bought these.

Been meaning to post this for a week! A good friend recently gave me this bottle. It was very nice. Quite a dry finish but went well with a chilli :)

The Amarone was tonight's celebratory bottle.
