Gin Tutorial Intermediate 10th July 2019 or Round 2 !
Having done the Basic tutorial, you get a good idea of the styles of Gin out there, the ideal tonic/gin ratios and the dramatic effects garnish can make.
The Intermediate tutorial develops on this by showing how and allowing you to taste new gins and allocate them to one of the 25 grids on The Gin Sat Nav chart. The Art of Discernment is not so much about yes I like it, or No I do not. But rather ‘ i think this is more like this style because or this is well balanced, distinctive because etc’ so developing a vocabulary that is appropriate and fun.
Maud Heath ‘Tytherton’ Red 2017
This is the fourth year in a row that a quality red has been produced from this vineyard. As I understand it, no other English vineyard has ever produced this many quality reds in successive years. The maxim is if you can produce a quality red you can do all the other stuff really well. This is it is because it all about the ability to ripen the grapes. If you can ripen red grapes to a level that it produces great reds, then the whites, spark-lings and rose wines are going to be superb.
I can send only send one bottle per address, for people to try this wonderful red.
