Wine Of The Week Round-Up 2011

09:45 Tue 13th Dec 2011 |

We've had superb regular threads running this year such as the Onwards & Downwards Club, The Quzzies & Puzzles Round Up and, of course, the Wine of the Week thread.

Hosted by No Mercy this thread offers a chance for oenophiles, bacchi and those who just fancy a glass every now and again to come together. The thread usually features a few wines for differing tastes as well as news on where you can find them on offer!

If you want to join in they're usually started on a Thursday, just in time for the weekend!

Here we offer a round-up of all the WOTW threads posted in 2011 so you can see if there's anything recommend to take your fancy!

Asda's Extra Special Primitivo, the Italian Variety widely acknowledged to be the forefather of Zinfandel

La Chasse Chardonnay/Viognier. Full of citrus and exotic fruits, this wine really needs a good flavoursome dish to stand up to it

November 2011:

A "Mighty" and "Ripe"! Pizzorno Merlot/Tannat 2010 (Uruguay)

Sainsbury's Taste The Difference Frog's Leap Fair Trade Pinotage

"Strong aromas of blackberry and raspberry on the nose, with a hint of fruit compote" from the Peter Lehman Wild Card Shiraz

The Whole Bunch Grenache Blanc / Viognier (SA 14%). An incredibly flavoursome wine with beautiful aromas of wild mushroom and herbs.


December 2011:

"Crisp, crunchy green apple and tropical fruits, with a sherbety tang on the finish" Block 13 Mclaren Vale Australian

Asda's Extra Special Falanghina is a wine that can be drunk all year round.


We hope everyone has a great Christmas and a Happy new Year!
