Busy day, and no dancing
Busy day yesterday, and I'm short of time right now, so I'll have to be brief (on my way to be a judge for the 'Malbec and meat' finals). Two tastings and a dinner and dance yesterday. The first of the tasting was the Bunch one (this is a group of half-a-dozen independent wine merchants, who each show just six wines...usually very, very good wines, but I'd love it if they showed a few more...and they had the worst tasting glasses I've ever experienced and a distinct shortage of proper spitoons yesterday), and the second was the Sainsbury press tasting, where I had a nice chat with tecchie guy Barry Dick. I also retasted their NZ Sauvignon Blanc in PET, which once again tasted really soapy.
Then in the evening it was the International Wine Challenge Dinner and Dance. Amazed by how many people were there, and had some nice chats, but, alas, had to leave before the dancing started.
