Winter comfort eating

The last week or so has been manic to say the least! Last weekend, after cooking a three course Christmas dinner for 41 air cadets and staff (I don’t know why I agree to these things), by Sunday afternoon all I wanted to do was chill out with a plate of cheese, a large glass of wine, and the remaining episodes of series one of Homeland (I’m a bit behind).

The wine I picked was Montes Alpha Pinot Noir 2010, an excellent value red from the Leyda Valley in Chile. Packed full of red cherries and strawberries with soft vanilla flavours and a delicate hint of toasty oak, this delicious Pinot Noir is a steal at £11.90, available from Slurp.co.uk.
