What’s in the glass tonight June 21st

Allan Scott Marl Chardonnay 2012

It is the longest day of the year. And for some it has been a very very long day.

Outside my office window, icy storm-force gales are slowly abating as the worst storm to hit the Wellington region since the 1968 storm that sunk the Wahine moves away. My riding circuit – the south coast – has been smashed by 15m waves. Roofs have been dislodged, and trees ripped out of the ground all over. Ugly. My house got away with only damage to a gate (I think – have to check closely when I get home).

Phew. So now I’m having a wine. Is it safe to Drink and Work?

Allan Scott Marlborough Chardonnay 2012 – $$

Pale yellow. Light nose of peach and spice. Leggy. Fresh, creamy, apricots, bit of toasty oak. Appealing. 3
