I’ve been tasting wines. Quite a lot of wines. I got through to number 28 (although I think the numbering skipped four or five along the way).
I’m not sure I can remember the good ones. I think there was an M&S Gamay (VDP L’Ardeche, £3.50) that I thought would be nice chilled. I liked a Co-op Western Cape Shiraz Rose (good value at £4.50). And the straight from the freezer M&S Darting Estate Eiswein was delicious (£13 for a half bottle).
But though I’m happy to have tasted every wine going, I have a feeling I missed out on a good story about a vegan friend killing a bird because I was too pleased with myself for being able to say ornithological when I was already on number 12.
