So its been a long day at work, your feet are sore and your brain is frazzled. The problem is you’ve agreed to attend an event in London and you know its something you cannot miss out on. Oh god time to face the dreaded commute. But wait…what is this I see sitting so comfortably within my New Look wannabe designer bag…a perfect little but inviting bottle of wine. Boom, this is where the travel wine comes in.
Now I don’t know about you but I enjoy drinking whilst on a journey somewhere. Whether its in a taxi on a night out or grabbing a little travel wine on the way out to dinner. For example, the other day I was attending my sisters boyfriends birthday at a casino. It soon became apparent that for once I wasn’t driving but instead being driven. Well, you can imagine my excitement that I had to physically force my other half to pull over to M&S. He was thrilled with me, as usual. Anyway, I ran into the shop in my bright red jumpsuit and unnecessarily high high heels. As soon as I entered I was straight to the little bottles of beauty. There I was greeted with a crisp and cold looking bottle of 2015 Pheasant Gully.
Where to start with the description of this wine…as soon as the first drop hits your tongue there is a powerful explosion of freshness. The first drop made my taste buds zing with a wonderful lemony fragrance. That wonderful sour feeling throughout your mouth with a mixture of thank fuck its Friday. I must admit I am partial to a good Chardonnay and what a treat this was. Every drop ends with a zesty fruity flavour.
This wine in particular overall offers a crisp and dry taste. This Australian White Wine is a mixture of Semillion and Chardonnay. Semillon is usually used as a blending partner and not always typically with Chardonnay. But my golly, what a perfect partnership this is.
This bottle in particular is a 25cl size. If you are looking for extra class and maybe to share this with a friend whilst in first class, take a look at a Mini Wine Duo & Glasses set HERE. This travel wine would be perfect with a selection of salty nibbles to complete your journey. I would recommend either some salted peanuts or some Sea Salt & Malt Vinegar Kettle Crisps. Who said taste had to be at such an expense?
