A fun night.

First to the Wine Loft after work to meet L and her friends J and B. While there we shared a bottle of Brodie Estate Wind Dancer Martinborough Pinot Noir 2009 – $$$

This was lovely. Deep carmine. 13.5%. Ripe, soft, dense, floral. Notes of vanilla. Product of Dijon and Able clones. 4

Then off home for L’s Coconut honey and peanut butter chicken curry. Yum. She had her usual rose, while I had a glass of Clifford Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013 – $

DWISOTT*. White straw colour. 13%. Nose of pears and limes. Grassy and refreshing to taste; usual Marlborough varietal expression of tomato stalk and grapefruit but not too astringent.I don’t like ’em too wince-y…Good value. 3
