Don't get us wrong, we LOVE Caspar's inimitable tasting notes but in today's world, there is sometimes a place for something short-and-sweet too! To appeal to those of you who want to keep it simple, our wines now have a #3wordtastingnote too.
Each new wine has its own three-word descriptor which we put on the wine's page on our website but also post on our social media channels. (We are also in the process of retrospectively creating them for our existing wines.)
With entries for our #3wordtastingnote competition this weekend coming in via email, facebook, twitter and text, we decided that the fairest way was to draw the winner randomly. CONGRATULATIONS to M TEMPLE from Oxford. His tasting note? "Fresh, complex, value" for the 2013 Chenin Blanc Terre Brulée, Vincent Carême. (Now sadly out of stock!)
Thank you to everyone who took part. We had some cracking entries such as: "fizzy, fruity, fun", ”bright, balanced, blackberry” and
"fruity, full, awesome". (Click on each #3wordtastingnote to see which wine inspired them.)
This year's wines so far...
