It is a two part meme and I get to tell you about the best wine I've had in the past 30 days. Catherine at Food Musings will be sharing the best meal matching wine she has enjoyed in the past 30 days.
I don't even need to think about this. Actually I do. As it is exactly 30 days since we drank our one and only bottle of Penfolds Grange 1990. That obviously was the best, but I'm going to exclude it for this meme as it is such a rare occurence.
I'm selecting the first New Zealand Pinot Noir I've really enjoyed. My first glass was when a friend brought it along to this party. I loved it so much I went out and bought some for this event. With a few contacts in the industry I rarely pay retail for my wine. This is the one wine I won't think twice about paying the retail price.
Olssens Jackson Barry Pinot Noir 2003.
