February 2022 Meeting

Twelve members gathered for our wine tasting evening on the 1st February. Chris and Graham B introduced their favourite red and white wines from South America, Australia and England. Each member was asked to mark (out of 5) each wine for colour, bouquet and taste.

After much discussion and quite lot of sipping, the Wine Club’s members voted a 2021 red wine from Argentina (Jam Shed, a Malbec, £7.00 from Sainsburys, but £6.00 from Morrisons) as their favourite wine, selected by Graham. 

This grape is sourced from selected vineyards in the hills of Argentina’s famous Mendoza wine region. This Malbec has rich, opulent plum and blackberry flavours, rounded off with a hint of cocoa and vanilla and is, I quote, “Seriously Shareable, Seriously Delicious, Seriously… give it a go”.

Many thanks to Chris and Graham for sharing their favourite wines.

Our next meeting on Tuesday, 1st March will be a skittles evening at the Royal British Legion in Limpsfield with food included.
