We let self contained campers stay at the winery but I have been having trouble with this dude
It's not really the sleigh but the reindeers are definitely not self contained. The other problem is he keeps wanting to test the Port.
Anyway All you need for Xmas to keep you going through Xmas and New Years is set out below
Or if you remember how the song goes
On the first day of Xmas my true love sent to me
One bottle of Old Tawny
Two bottles of Rose
Three bottles of Chardonnay
Four bottles of Pinot Gris
Five bottles of Pinot Noir………………………And a partridge in a pear tree
Or as Michael Jackson said. Don’t stop until you get enough
A case will be enough but two would be better
Torlesse Port AKA 10 Year Old Tawny.
It is the perfect gift. You all know how good this is, you had better get some now. My normal price on the Old Tawny is now $35. Try and get a better 10 year old Tawny Port for a lower price. At $30 the 10 Old Tawny is excellent value.
The 2018 Torlesse Rose was awarded a bronze and a silver at the last 2 wine shows, hopefully it will go Gold at the next one. In any case it is perfect to drink over these next few months. Wonderful colour, fresh and fruity with a crisp finish. A stylish drop at a patio wine price and a steal at $14.50 a bottle.
Rose has become very trendy but Pinot Gris is also making inroads into the domination of Sauvignon Blanc in the white wine market.
The 2017 Torlesse Pinot Gris has nuances of pears and honey comb, a generous middle palate finishing with a hint of sweetness, smooth and balanced. The $14.50 price tag is also pretty smooth.
The 2018 Torlesse Chardonnay has stone fruit and a hint of spicy oak. Clean crisp and fresh. Have it with fresh Oysters. A bargain at $14.50 per bottle
2015 Torlesse Pinot Noir Berry fruit, toasty oak, good middle palate weight and medium firm finish. Better than a BBQ red so could be used as a stocking filler. Try some and find out how good it is. Great buy at $14.50
I have included two serious gift items
2011 Omihi Road SVR Merlot.
It has great colour, a complex aroma that is just starting to show hints of cigar box and a firm palate that will soften with time. At $35 per bottle it is a serious wine at a modest price.
Torlesse Creme de Cassis [Black Currant Liqueur].
You must get some of this. It is perfect in bubbles. Great in cocktails and desserts can move to another level with a suitable infusion of Cassis. Mix with soft drink to have a sensible but tasty lower alcohol spritzer. Newsletter Special at $27
