  • "Simple" Midweek Dinner - Variety is the Spice of Life (Giant Garoupa Restaurant): An extemely interesting white from Lombardia, not half bad either. A strange mix of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and white Nebbiolo, this tasted in some parts like an old Burg, in others like an old Bordeaux and still others almost Soave-like. It was certainly well-made and very pleasurable though. For a start, it had an opulent nose - super honeyed on first sniff, and then some oyster shell aromas and slightly oxidative notes of red apples starting to brown, and then some rather pretty accents of flowers and nectar. Interesting stuff.The palate was nice too. Still fresh and very balanced in spite of its yummily rich flavours, it had fresh acidity running through ripe notes of lemons, apples and sweet pear laced with honey and a bit of chalk - extremely Burg-like here actually if not for a waxy richness and rather ripe yellow-fruited notes. An intriguing wine, and surprisingly food friendly too.
