Teru Teru, Tannat Reserva 2007

Why does the Daily Mail keep shooting us in the foot?  In the latest Lord Triesman sting, I support Gary Lineker.  Actually I have always tried very hard to avoid the newspaper whose only purpose, in my opinion, apart from being the moral voice of useless old tossers, is to bring down anyone in authority.  Anyone…

I am thinking of emigrating to Uruguay where I hear that newspapers are, if not more rational, then at least more patriotic.  Ironic in a way when you think of the xenophobic tone of some Mail articles.

Uruguay produced this fab Tannat which I enjoyed with a bacon omelette (smoked dried cured streaky, since you asked).

The taste reminded me of blackcurrant jam on slightly burnt toast and butter with Earl Grey tea.  Tastes much stronger than the 13.5% ABV that it is.  From the Wine Society at £8.95 this is a super wine for the price and it’s on for £7.95 if you hurry.

Legendary value for money and much improved (with age?) since last time I tasted it.  No doubt the Mail will disagree if it gets popular…..or Uruguay win the World Cup again.
