Tall and tanned, and young and lovely was the girl from Ipanema. But I’ve been getting more luck from the South of France recently. Of sorts. This young lady, for example, going by the seductive name of Château du Cèdre turned out to have a huge pair of bollocks. More Manchester Pride than Brazilian carnival babe.
Rich, fruity, yet smooth and soapy. It is a bit like drinking coffee from an earthenware pot whilst munching on a raspberry teabag. But if you can stand the tannins, it is conclusive proof that you can build a wine sturdier than a tranny’s thong at only 13° ABV. One in the eye for Mr Parker?
I would recommend following WART instructions and taking this down from room to cellar temperature, to avoid scalding your tongue.
Available from Costco at £11.73 – this feels like good value to me.
