The Best In The Last 30 Days.  Add/Read Comments

So much for taking today off from blogging; I have been tagged! And its contagious. Agh.

Beau tags Lenn. Lenn tags the Wine Chicks. They tag Tim mid-cast who then, generous to a fault, goes and tags liddle o' me. The tag being, if you havent followed the links, "The best in the last 30". Which bottle or glass of wine have I sampled over the last 30 days would I class as the 'best'? Tricky, as I have been to several tastings over the last month; it being the wine tasting season in UK trade circles.

I am going to plump for two wines from Spy Valley in New Zealand. The full tasting notes will appear in the full write-up but honestly, amongst all the wines recently I have slurped and spat, these really stood out. Many wines over the last few weeks, although perfectly drinkable and enjoyable, didn't really excite, were not distinctive enough I guess to be truly memorable. These two from New Zealand really bucked that trend. The specific wines are the Spy Valley Pinot Gris 2004 and the Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2004. They both retail for �8.99 in the UK which I regard as a bargain.

Who though to tag next..? Over to you - Cam down in Australia.

UPDATE: I never was one to read the rules before playing a game so totally missed the fact I have to tag a foodie too. Umm, Anne class yourself as tagged!
