Wine of The Month

 

The wine am currently sipping on is called Rabbit and Spaghetti purchased from Naked Wines. Naked Wines is an online wine retailer founded by Rowan Gormley which launched in the UK on 1 December 2008. Naked Wines’ customers (called Angels) fund independent winemakers from around the world, in return for wines at self-described “wholesale prices”. However, the Financial Times notes that most wines sold by Naked Wines are not available on the retail market, “making direct price comparisons virtually impossible”, and most wines are priced “close to usual retail price”. They currently ship wine throughout the UK, USA, and Australia.
I thought the outside design was pretty creative it resembles an old mail postcard. They have and background story on how they got the interesting name on the back label. It’s an Australian wine from a small vineyard in the Kalimna sub-region of the Barossa Valley the wine has black currants, cinnamon mocha, and spice. The palate is tight, rich and round with firm tannins that give the great texture and flavor. The winemaker name is Adam Barton and the odd name comes from the meals farmers shared with Italian soldiers who were prisoners in Australia’s wine regions.
I am usually not a big fan of red wines but this is very tasty. It isn’t bitter or flat and am really surprised that I can drink this without it being chilled.
