Bottle 9 of 12- 2008 Nepenthe Tryst

What a disappointment- after a wonderful long weekend away, I was hit last night by the back to reality blues so, after a delicious curry at Samrat, our local Indian restaurant, I decided to try and cheer myself up with some Lindt dark chocolate and a glass of red wine.

I selected this wine from the remaining 4 reds in the Tesco wine case because the bottle praised its versatility (enjoy ‘in any time or place you choose’). Despite its pleasant spicy aroma, this Australian red, made from a blend of Cabernet and Tempranillo grapes, was acidic and bland with overpowering tannin flavours.

Needless to say, I gave up on that and ate all the chocolate instead!
