B A T O N N A G E // Enjoying another great drop from the lovely ladies at Bremerton. This is my FAVOURITE so far.
The 2015 Bremerton Bâtonnage Shiraz/Malbec is frickin amazing. Rich and with dark fruits and white pepper characteristic. Great to accompany a great game-y meal (although.. it still did alright with my Quarter Pounder from McDonalds). Hang on... what is Bâtonnage?? Good question. It means to stir the lees. Hang on... what are lees?? Pretty much... dead yeast cells after fermentation... just keeping it all mixed up so you don't get that cheeky hydrogen sulphide characteristic in your wine (that could have happened if it was left un-stirred). They really did you a favour.
Happy International #pinotnoir day! What does everyone plan to open this evening to celebrate 🎉? I've got my sights set on this baby. @crystallumwines has produced this amazing #singlevineyard#burgundianstyle#pinot with grapes from one of the highest points in the #hemelenaarde region of South Africa. The name #cuveecinema comes from the history of the vineyard. A movie about Napoleon was shot on the site a year before the vines were planted. I think the wine world is witnessing something very special with these wines and the greatness has only just begun! Well done to Peter-Allan & Andrew, I'm such a fan! 🙌🍷🍇 #crystallumwines#crystallum#pinotnoirday
My aim when I made my teaching demo was to get hired 4months ago when I uploaded it on youtube, I never expected other subscribers/teachers to recognize my "one take bahala na basta maka demo" video. Soooo!!!! Here it is!!! I have 15k views, 100+ subcribers and likers (ofcourse, if there are people who 👍s your vid there would be some who 👎s it "you can't please everyone" -huntingon ko ning napuoo!!! Hahaha joke!). The comments were positive and they were urging me to do more vids (maybe soon). Also, when your photo got featured, it brings so much joy! Thank you mucho!!! #youtube#youtubevideo#teaching#demo#teachingdemo#teacherslife#instagram#photooftheday#winenot#wineryphoto#vineyardphoto#cappingtheday
