Clos Saint-AndréThis afternoon we acquired a few extra bottles of wine to arm us for the holiday season.  The most anticipated addition, a 1998 Châteauneuf-du-Pape from producer Clos Saint-André.

For those with a sweet tooth, we also acquired something of a curiosity – from California, a 2010 vintage orange Muscat from producer Quady, this wine is labelled as ‘Essensia’. 

Lastly, from New South Wales’ Riverina region, a perennial favourite – a bottle of the 2008 DeBortoli “Noble One” botrytis Semillon, which is really sweet gold in a bottle.
