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.

Sauternes, my old ma's favourite tipple.

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.

Good on her Andy!
Reminds me that in the 1950s (when I was very young) wine was scarce and most people in the UK, my parents included, didn't know much about wine, my dad used to get a bottle of Spanish Sauternes at Christmas. It was pretty awful.

That's the stuff @Young Col. Mum took a shine to it in the '60's when it was awful. My Dad was appalled at how much he had to pay later in his life when the good stuff came into the country.

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.

On a scale of A to E for fullness of body this was a D.
