What’s in the glass tonight March 28th

Tarbabies dinner 2015

The Tarbabies Graperide Dinner 2015

Most of the usual suspects from the cycling crew I roll with rocked up to the Twelve Trees Restaurant at the Allan Scott Vineyard to enjoy a communal dinner Saturday night following our exploits competing in this year’s Graperide 101km Cycle event.

L and I finished safely together in a time of 3hrs 15mins. A number of my mates were away competing in another event – the Gentle Annie. Ride reports flowed in by text from them as our evening progressed, and we learnt the the Gentle Annie was better termed the Brutal Annie, due to the length and steepness of the many hills on the course! And the  DNFs!

Allan Scott Wallops Chardonnay 2012

L and I just relaxed with a bottle of Allan Scott The Wallops Chardonnay Marlborough 2013. A citrus perfumed nose, displaying somewhat austere minerality. Crisp apples and citrus flavours. Some mealiness. BTG 3+

Allan Scott Hounds Pinot Noir 2012

When our bottle ran out, I finished with a glass of Allan Scott The Hounds Pinot Noir Central Otago 2013. 13%. Herby fruity nose with spices – really nice bouquet. Nice zesty black cherry flavours. VG 4
