Sampling Wines from Elizabeth Rose Wines Ltd (Episode 188 – Part 2)

In part 2 of this episode, we taste some of the fantastic wines that are available to buy from their website at https://www.elizabethrosewines.co.uk/ 

 

The first wine we taste is from a small vineyard in the East Anglia (Essex) called Toppesfield Vineyard and is made from the Bacchus Grape.

The next wine we taste a Rose from Giffords Hall stable. This wine is made from Pinot noir and Madeleine Angevine grapes.

Next, we tasted a Woodchurch Classic Cuvee made from the same grapes that go into Champagne – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinoy Meunier.

Finally, we tasted a Red Wine from the Trevibban Mill on the North Cornwall Coast who try to be as organic as possible. This particular wine is a blend using Rondo and Dornfelder grapes.

Elizabeth Rose Wines Interview (Episode 188 Part 1)

We interview Sara and Becky about their exciting new venture of promoting and selling English and Welsh wine online.

Sara and Becky, explain what their current careers are and how they came up with the idea of setting up this new company.

Becky explains the difference between British Wine and English and Welsh wine.

We discuss the flexibility of their new offering including not having to buy a case of each wine that you fancy trying.

The site will also guide you through the many grapes used in England and Wales for winemaking. Names you are probably not familiar with. The site will allow you to determine which wines you may warm to based on the type of wine you currently drink.

19 Crimes Red Wine (Episode 187)

We have the great pleasure and privilege of tasting a bottle of 19 Crimes Red wine from South East Australia, with a very special guest – Anabelle McVine from the YouTube Channel WineScribble.

John L had first tried this in a restaurant in the United States where it cost considerably more than the price he was able to buy it for in the UK from a discount store – BM.

The wine is aged in a rum barrel to help give it it’s unique taste profile.

As experienced red wine drinkers both John M and Annabelle thought the taste profile was not quite complex enough for their personal tastes. They both felt. however, that if you were beginning your red wine journey this would be an excellent bottle to try.

Tasting 3 Choirs Wines (Episode 181 Part 2)

This episode follows John L’s visit to the Three Choirs Vineyard. Martin Fowkes, the Winemaking Director, kindly gave us some samples for John M to try back in the cellar.

The first wine we taste is their Cuvee.

Their Cuvee is in fact only £16.99, not the £20 that was quoted in the video and can be purchased via this link:- https://www.three-choirs-vineyards.co.uk/product/classic-cuvee-n-v/

This was a great tasting sparkling wine without the acidity people often associate with sparkling wine including Champagne. This Cuvee seemed incredible value as it deserved to be respected and enjoyed rather than just “necked”.

The next wine was 3 Choirs White Wine made from the Bacchus grape, whilst John M was slightly disappointed in the amount length, but John L really really enjoyed it. It was similar to Sauvignon Blanc, but once again had none of the acidity of Sauvignon Blanc which makes it ideal for those of you that like Sauvignon Blanc but do not like the acidity of this grape.

The final we taste is the 3 Choirs Vineyards Red Wine. This wine is ideal in our opinion for those people that are looking to move on from just drinking white to also wanting to drink red. the tannins are very light and the wine is very fruity. It’s nose (bouquet) is very similar to the Gamay grape which is used to make Beaujolais.


These wines are available directly from the Three Choirs website the address for which is https://www.three-choirs-vineyards.co.uk/

Masham Chocolate Malt Barley (Episode 185 Part 3)

We were privileged and excited to be joined by another YouTuber – Annabell from the WineScribble channel.

Take a look at Annabell’s fantastic channel at WineScribble

Whilst in the UK Annabell honoured with a visit to our cellar and we took the opportunity to invite Annabell to taste to some craft gin from the Masham Distillery.

 

The gin we were tasting was Masham Gin Distillery Chocolate Barley Gin. The gin gets it’s name from the barley which has been roasted causing it’s “skin” to go a chocolate colour.

This is another fantastic unique gin from the Masham Gin Distillery stable and if you like subtle and unique flavours this gin is the way to go. Like all of Mashams gins this gin is smooth, rounded and even at 42% allows you to taste the different flavours that all go to make up it’s complexity.

In fact, all three of us preferred drinking it neat, as whilst obviously, the tonic made it into a long drink, but the tonic masked some of the flavours.

Even Annabell was impressed!

Masham Masla Chia Gin (Episode 185 Part 2)

 

In this episode, John and I taste another fantastic gin from the Spirit of Masham Distillery. This time we taste the first gin ever developed by them, their Masala Chia Gin. This gin really is unique and separates itself from the rest of the market because of it’s unique flavour profile.

It’s tastes are soft and rounded even though it is 42% ABV meaning it can easily be enjoyed neat with maybe a chunk or two of ice.

If you are looking for something different this is the gin to try.

In the video we cover the flavours that we can uncover, but can you detect any others – let us know via the comments box or via email.

Masham Classic Gin Review (Episode 185 Part 1)

Following on from John L’s visit to Masham Gin distillery and his interview with Derek, the two Johns settle down in the cellar to taste the Masham Gin’s Classic Gin.

This is a very smooth and subtly different from other craft gins we have tasted – what can we say, a brilliant gin.

With tonic added the drink has a wonderful effect of you first tasting the tonic and then the gin taste follows on later almost as if you have sipped two separate drinks one after the other.

Yellow Tail Merlot Wine Review (Episode 184)

In this video, we taste a Yellow Tail Merlot. This wine is available around the world is grown and produced in Australia. the winery is still run by the same family that started the business back in the 1950’s having emigrated from Sicily.

Priced at around £7.00 in UK supermarkets, it will be acceptable to most peoples pockets.

You must excuse John L’s schoolboy humour in this video but what is wine about if it is not about enjoyment!

This wine is ideal for those looking to add red wines to their list of wines to drink.

Albret La Vino de mi Madre Wine Review (Episode 183)

In this episode, we taste a fantastic 2013 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Spain.

The rough translation of the wines’ name is My Mother’s Wine.

It has a great rich colour, a great nose (smell) and then when tasted massive dark fruit flavours followed by the taste of lighter red fruits.

A great wine if you are interested in starting to try to identify more than one flavour from your wine.
