Little appetite last night, despite baking a delicious loaf of nut-infused bread. Sliced a few pieces and served with cheese - oozing brie and a harder, cheddar-like Lincoln Poacher; it was all I fancied. To accompany just a glass or two of this Spanish white.

Wine Tasting Note: Espiral Old Vine Macabeo Chardonnay, 2004, Somontano, Spain.
Threshers £5.99.
Quite soft initially with a lightly nutty, pear and lychee flavour. Medium bodied. There is a gently tapering finish, after the acidity kicks in with a lemony burst. Clean and fresh. It worked wonderfully with the cheese - the brie brought out a nice orange edge to the flavour. In contrast the Lincoln Poacher soften the acidity and accentuated the length, the wine emphasising the flavours of the cheese rather than the other way round. A nice wine worth sampling. Alcohol 13%. The winemaker is an MW - Norrel Robertson.
Scribblings Rating - 88/100
