Argyle Brut

What a surprise this wine was! I got this bottle as a gift last year and had been saving it for the proper occasion. That occasion arose when the new series of Doctor Who premiered, and my friend and I got Thai carryout and watched it. I paired the Brut with Thai in hopes that it would cut through the spices.

It was quite the match. I was well pleased with myself.

The wine itself had a nice peachy color, with a toasty nose and plentiful bubbles. There were a few hints of lemon curd in the otherwise dry taste, and I’m pretty sure I got a hit of melon on the finish.

It was refreshing but bold and a perfect accompaniment to my fried rice. Amazing!
