Ah So Wine Openers:This wine opener is more difficult to use than the other options, but it is ideal for opening vintage bottles of wine or any other bottles that may be sealed with corks that have become brittle. That’s because it is specifically designed to avoid damaging the cork. How does it work? Two thin metal prongs attached to a handle are slid in between the cork and the bottle. Simply twist the handle, pull up, and the cork should come out. Nicknamed the “Butler’s Friend,” because any servant could easily use it to remove the cork, take a quick swig, and then replace it without anyone noticing the bottle had been tampered with. The Ah So has even been known to come to the rescue when a broken cork is stuck in the bottleneck.
Dom. Paul Mas 'Arrogant Frog' Viognier 2015 Where most viogniers from Northern Rhone fade in the first 3-5 years of life the amazingly well priced 'Arrogant Frog' has kept its wits while those more serious wines have lost the plot. The success of this wine lies in its' closure; the screwcap has saved it and preserved much of the youthfulness and vivacity. Colour is straw yellow, lively acids and lots of honeyed notes mingle in a generous mid-palate. A wine that is welcome poolside or tableside. Serve well chilled in the tropical climate.
Dom. de Coussergues Burgundy Chardonnay 2015 This is one of the best value for money Chardonnay's I have had for a while. Blind tasted I would argue New World wine. Stone fruit, papaya, apricots and just a joy to drink. If it cost any more then the fun would erode away quickly. Serve it slightly cooler than normal and it will warm your heart for sure.
