Bringing @someday_sessions to a close ... a completely delicious 2018 Take on a classic lemon delicious pudding - @peter_cooksley’s lemon whey pudding and one of the last bottles of 2016 Mosse #moussamoussettes in the country. Fortunately the 2017 vintage arrives in about 3 weeks.
Match your wine to your hair. Unless your hair is not blonde or orange or pink. Also, don’t forget to order your food before you start drinking wine straight from the bottle. Most importantly, don’t forget that red is a color, a hair color, and a wine color. @maralmckenzie 😘 #picnic#bayview#privatechef#moussamoussettes
Things got a bit ancestral tonight with this ridiculously good lineup of pet nats and other natural wonders. Hard to play favourites but @blackestate - your home pet nat is a bloody stunner. @mrbglover agent orange was another crowd pleaser. Speaking of coferments, @gentlefolkwine rainbow juice still puts a smile on my face. Surprise of the night goes to the @kindeliwines #brutal!!! which has come a long way with a bit of bottle age and no longer tastes like teabags. Nick Candy is on to a winner with @tincan_wines persuasive pet nat - looking forward to trying more of your wines! Bit of effort to get hold of the @littlewingvineyard Syrah methode ancestrale but worth it for such a bright, fresh expression. @lucymargauxwines frizzante was perhaps the most delicate of the night, while the @mountedwardwinery Ted albariño stands out on its own. Why more sparkling wine in New Zealand isn’t made from albariño is beyond us. Watch this space? And when it comes to space, we are pleased @tomshobbrook needed to make some in the winery because the resulting pet nat is properly delicious. The grand daddy of them all though, that we have been longing to try, is the #moussamoussettes from @renecabernet which understandably inspired so many, including Dan at @winediamondsnz and we can see why. Amazing night - thanks to @vinofinochch @cultwinenz and @winediamondsnz for the wines, @jennskoda for your #blackestate#protips#onecentpermention @aimee.marty and @bradenharford for the #snacks and the @chchwinescene team for putting it all together. #letsdoitagainsoon . . . #longestpostever#pétnat#petnat#naturalwine#methodeancestrale#methodeancestral#winetasting#winelineup#winegram#instawine#drinkdifferent
