I couldn’t go past this bottle of Raventos i Blanc 2017 Cava on the Good Pair Days site for my subscription box this month. It’s one of the more expensive bottles at $38 – however after visiting the Penedes region (the home of Cava) in 2011, I knew it was going to be good.
We have so much Chenin in our hose right now, it’s great.
This beauty is a sample from Good Pair Days (thank you!). This Jemma 2017 Chenin Blanc is made by Painted Wolf in Paarl, South Africa. Painted Wolf was set up by winemaker Jeremy and his wife Emma in 2007 as a small-scale experiment for when they weren’t helping to protect and champion the South African wild dog.
We love making homemade pizzas and you can’t have pizza without wine right? On our latest pizza night we decided to crack into this Shaw & Smith ‘Incognito’ 2018 Pinot Noir. The grapes are from the Coal River Valley in Tassie.
Happy 10 weeks us! I don’t think I’ve ever appreciated my post-8pm wine as much as I have over the last 10 weeks (8pm is the little man’s bedtime). And this one is a beauty too! Both Mr Spittoon and I were gushing over it.
