Late Friday. Only one thing will save us now - red wine and cheese on toast. Not the heights of culinary creativity but with a mob and little in the fridge all we could be bothered to rustle up. Plastic cork removed and wine sploshed into whatever glasses are at hand and are clean - a couple of ISOs, an ex-nutella jar tumbler and some of those cheap 'cut-glass' goblets of dubious taste. Where did they come from exactly?

Wine Tasting Note: Stormhoek Shiraz, 2003, Western Cape, South Africa.
Available from Threshers for £6.99.
The wine is deep mulberry in colour, barely registering on most of the drinkers, as the music is cranked-up and the conversation gets creative and surreal. A peppery aroma and jammy black fruit flavours finds no one disagreeing with its drinkability. As smooth as the acid jazz pumping through the Mordant Shorts with just a tweak of a balsamic-acidic bite on the finish.
Scribblings Rating - 88/100

Cheese on toast
