Dear Wine Lover

Do you miss me?  Confession: I have been skiving.  Time sneaks up, and suddenly it dawned on me that I must keep in touch lest you forget me.
 
Nothing much has happened.  My daily routine is like the gentle waves at the shore, flowing in and out.  It is like meditation; time is still and steadfast.  There is the occasional mandatory surveillance monitoring of my health during hospital visits, and I hardly go out to see the world.
 
At a recent musical, I was seated in the front row.  A friend observed he didn't see the enthusiasm because I used to clap the loudest and shout for an encore.  I didn't feel unhappy, and neither was I thrilled.  I think I am practising the art of survival.  I have the funny side; I half-jokingly told my family member that my gift, if any, is a fire-fighter suit because I would like to wear it.  Why?  Because every day, I am fire-fighting -  either with the unhappy crew or unhappy customers. 
 
One thing remains, I look forward to a  sundowner cocktail.  Doc warned me that my liver was in the red zone.  What the heck … cannot do this, cannot do that, what's the point?  I continue to have my regular cocktails – margarita, and on evenings with families, I open my private collection of wines.  All the merry-making helps me forget the 'fire-fighting.'  

Work can wait.  Raising a glass is a timeless way to celebrate any occasion.  I am enjoying the moment.  You should too.

One of our favourite discoveries!

If you’ve never heard of the Mencía grape varietal, you are not alone; Mencía only grows in Spain and Portugal on the Iberian peninsula.  It is a medium-bodied red wine grape that produces high-quality wines with floral and red fruit flavours.  What do we love about it?  It has shown the ability to age like other fine wines and offers rich aromas in the glass. Superb for Pinot Noir lovers because it is a delicate grape variety and sensitive to terroir and its environment. Mencía offers the same elegance and freshness of Burgundy Pinot Noir at a much affordable price.

We highly recommend this wine from Bierzo, a small, rural, and remote ancient region in the north-western corner of Castilla y León, touching the eastern border of Galicia, which has recently become a hotspot with international winemakers!

Dish of the Month
Braised Abalone with Mushroom and Broccoli


S$28.00 (serves 2)

We are always thinking of how wines can pair with our favourite dishes.  This National Day, we are serving up delicious braised abalone with mushroom and broccoli.  Slow-cooked in a traditional clay pot, this is a bowl of goodness.  We suggest a medium-bodied red wine with this.  I will have a glass of merlot after the piping hot dish; the wine is rounder, not so tannic.
