The Six Hour Lunch is something that we started back around 2008. We first heard about it at a wine tasting evening at Vino Fino and we liked the idea so much that we have made it something of a tradition.
So, it's on again. Amy and Dopp are hosting it here in Christchurch and we've got a great line up so far. :)
I'm actually starting this late so we'll get a couple in this post and I'll start posting as we reach them. Traditionally these posts get less and less coherent through the day so bare with me. :) Since the walk I've also become something of a light weight.
Krohn Ruby Port
Good colour. There were some mildly chemical flavours like there was a slight kerosene as an additive undertone. A little fruity with a touch of cheery.
I'm only one in and actually starting to feel this already. I appear to be quite economical now...
This is nice. Slightly transparent, a little dirty, very fruity. Like liquid raisins. That may not be to everyones taste, but it works for me. :)
Porto Krohn Vintage 2003
I missed this one. My lightweightedness is working to my disadvantage at the moment.
Hamish described it thus; Opaque plum colour. Acetone nose. Intense raisin flavour; apple finish.
"Intense raisin flavour" :/ Damnit.
Grant Burge 10 Year Old Tawny
This is great. :) Very full flavour that just fills the mouth. Slightly oaky, very slight buttery hints. The raisin flavour isn't as intense as Torlesse Port, but that just makes is a smoother drink. The colour is really good too.
And I'll call it there for this post. I've caught up so the rest shall be in the following posts.
