ESW Prestige Cuvee Tasting Round Two
Sunday 7th April 2019
Follow-up to last month's English sparkling wine prestige cuvee tasting.
London April 2019
A running in-joke amongst the attendees about crisp pairings for these high end wines.
On the way down to Deptford, I took a picture of the coolbag with all the wine in.
On arrival at Andrew's house, I thought the lineup of stemware looked quite photo worthy.
I thought it might be nice to get the attendees to model each bottle we were tasting.
Decided to start with the Nyetimber 1086 this time so there would be no danger of our palates being overloaded.
Next up was this Ridgeview Single Vineyard Blanc de Blancs 2014.
Third was Hambledon's Premiere Cuvee.
There's the complete set of bottles for the lineup.
Not part of the original billing: Windsor Great Park.
Also not part of the original billing: Hambledon's rose.
I thought the smart wine thermometer (which I've become increasingly disappointed with) might work better as one of those ankle bracelets given to convicts.
Another arrangement of bottles from today's tasting. There were 7 of us!
After the tasting we walked from Andrew's house to Greenwich. Bit of a foggy day.
The Prince of Greenwich, where we had dinner.
Still slightly baffled by the fact there are direct trains from this end of town terminating at Kentish Town.
