Hendred Goldberry HillA sultry and very still evening in South O. One of those evenings where you just know rain is on its way with that heaviness to the air. So making the most of the few remaining moments of sun another opportunity to encapsulate that summer feeling with a bottle of something English. I know it's becoming a habit.

Following last weeks rather good Runnington Hill I ordered another wine from the same vineyard. A different blend though, labelled as Goldberry Hill.

Hendred Vineyard Goldberry Hill, 2003, Oxfordshire, England.
Local Tastes £5.99.
This is a blend of the evocatively named Madeleine Angevine and Seyval Blanc, a hybrid. Stewed apples on the nose, crab apples and hawthorn bushes. The palate is distinctly on the medium side of things but the acidity is high acting as a counter balance. Flavours of pear, baked apple and a sprinkling of dry savoury biscuits. Oh, and a touch of honey from the sweetness. Short length. Plastic cork. Alcohol 11.5%. Food? This went rather nicely with a chicken and green bean salad. Sunshine mandatory.
Scribblings Rating - 88/100
