Was I showing off a little with these wines? Maybe a little, and for good reason, although I got outclassed in the end anyway.
Recently I wrote about an old chardonnay that I had at a friend’s place, the one that showed clear, well actually golden, signs of looking like dehydrated equine liquid waste (my wife thought using “horse piss” in a blog was a bit off so I won’t mention it here … whoops). I had no idea I’d end up writing about that wine, I’d actually brought along a couple of other wines to “show off” and then blog about. But the old Chardy totally outclassed my two Spanish wines and stole the limelight. It’s great when a wine really surprises you.
Now the two little Spaniards get their turn, and deservedly so.
