Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin


The next door neighbours’
Eclectic acquaintances
Include us, tonight.

Name: Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin
Type: red wine
Venue: neighbour’s house

Review/notes: Our neighbours have been too friendly by half and are simply wonderful people.  They cornered us into coming over for beverages and to meet some of their circle and I really had no other expectations than to meet a few of the faces from the neighbourhood.  Turns out, they had a visitor from Australia and local folk originally from, variously, Iran, Argentina, Algeria, France, Spain, and Highworth.  We seemed to be the North American contingent and I wouldn’t be surprised if someone there had spent time in Antarctica.  Friendly, civilised, and a slight contrast to the last Swindon neighbours I wrote about.

The wine we took over was pretty tasty, I thought, but there were some truly lovely reds flowing.
