Advent 2017 – Day 8

8 Dec

Today’s drinks are:

1724 Tonic

This takes its name from the altitude where they harvest the key component of tonic water – quinine.

This has a lovely light and fresh scent and to taste it’s just the same. Light on bitterness it has no bubbles but isn’t flat. Nice to drink but nothing outstanding.

With gin it went well and was less overpowered than we expected. The bitterness came through more as did a strong lemon taste and acidity and it made a thoroughly nice G&T.

The Black Pig 2017 Chardonnay (nowhere to be found on the internet but by this maker)

On the nose this is buttery and light. Warm pears and almonds.

To taste it lived up to the smell. Not sweet but not dry this was a lovely white wine which was delicious with food and by itself- the nicest white wine I’ve ever had
