What’s in the glass tonight June 25th

Day Three / Dia Tres: Coto de Hayas Campo de Borja DDO Grenache Syrah NV

In the interests of reducing the effects of Climate Change (in the magnum), I put it in the fridge overnight.

The funk has reduced. Once it has warmed in the glass the wine settles down and is surprisingly very drinkable still. Just as well, there is quite a bit left. Not sure I should have put it in the fridge though – the chilling effect has knocked back the varietal character. The blackberries have morphed into black plums.

At this point a Spaniard would probably add Coca Cola and call the drink ‘kalamuchos’. Ole! 3

Con la intención de reducir los efectos del cambio climático (en el magnum), lo he puesto en la nevera toda la noche.
El funk se ha reducido. Una vez que se ha calentado en el cristal, el vino se calme, es sorprendentemente muy apetecible. Igual, hay un poco. No estoy seguro de que lo tenga que hacer en el frigorífico, aunque el efecto inhibidor ha tocado el carácter varietal. Las moras se han transformado en ciruela negra.
En este punto, un español probablemente se agregaría la Coca Cola y la bebida llamada “kalamuchos”. Ole! 3

NB: at the end of the night, after a long session on the phone with Vodafone setting up a wireless router, my glass had warmed up to the extent that the notes that had so appealed on Day One were coming to the front again!
