I do this blog for fun, the wines here are some of the very few I can be bothered to write up. The cream has risen.

Teusner The Dog Strangler Mataro 2008

I thought I'd bought the 2009, but apparently my eyesight is worse than I thought.

This wine is a real chameleon at the moment.

I opened it to decant 4 hours before dinner and had a taste. It was quite green, acidic and pretty uninteresting at that time.

Dinner was started late, so we didn't get to it for 5 hours, and wow did it change in that time. The initial bite had dropped a lot and was now showing minty spices, slightly tart cherries and leather with a peppermint finish.

A great food wine for sure with it's zingy flavours, though we did try it both with and without. I'd love to try this again in 10 years.
