Christmas… that unique time of the year when its acceptable to have a drink before 10am. If you ignore New Years which is the only other time. (Its midday for Birthdays in case you were wondering). It simply has to be something bubbly of course. Oh and gin.

For Christmas 2017 Tanqueray No.10 have released a stonkingly attractive caged bottle. The bespoke metal frame has “been expertly crafted to highlight Tanqueray No. 10’s striking geometric design”.

With 200 years of distilling passion, the celebrated gin prides itself on authenticity, quality and impeccable flavours of whole fresh citrus fruit. Tanqueray No. TEN is best enjoyed with a slice of pink grapefruit which showcases the spirit’s citrus elements. Highlighting it’s what you put in that really counts, it’s the perfect pairing to sip at a seasonal soiree. From a sophisticated Martini to a classic Tanqueray No. TEN & Tonic, Tanqueray No. TEN also provides a superb base for festive cocktails, great for toasting the party season.

To combine the love of gin with the festive requirement of bubbles only a French 75 cocktail will suffice. You know… until lunch time…

Wine That Stands Up to Pesto
It's officially summer. Unofficially, it's basil season. Right now, I am overwhelmed with the stuff. Pictured to the left is one of my behemoth basil plants. Having a lot of basil isn't exactly a problem, I admit. Who doesn't love basil? But for wine lovers, basil can make for difficult pairings. This is one assertive herb, and you need a wine that isn't going to clash with it, nor do you want your wine to disappear on the palate.















My usual go-to wine when strong green, herbal notes are part of a dish is Sauvignon Blanc. But New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs are often quite citrusy, and US Sauvignon Blancs can be too melony and soft for basil. So I opened a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc--and it was perfect with my linguine tossed with homemade pesto and topped with some heirloom cherry tomatoes.


The 2011 Viña Carmen Sauvignon Blanc Gran Reserva (available for $13-$15 in the market) is made from grapes grown in the Leyda Valley. It has vibrant aromas of grass, gooseberry, and that uniquely weird smell of boxwood that I often smell in Sauvignon Blancs from the southern hemisphere. This wine was green and leafy rather than citrusy, with a backbone of acidity that was neutral in flavor but kept your mouth watering for more. The midpalate was herbal, making me think 'this is what Cabernet Franc would taste like if it were white and not red.' Cool and refreshing, this stood up to the basil. If you have the wine with something less resolutely green, you may find that its assertiveness is a problem but if you have basil, this is a good wine to go with it--and it represents very good QPR.

Full Disclosure: I received a sample of this wine for possible review.
