Abstinence makes the heart grow fonder….

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Just as the January detox comes to an end we’re faced with the encroaching thought of lent. With all this pressure to abstain it’s enough to bring out the binge drinker in a girl! But could the heaving wine rack full of left over Christmas wine all be in vein? According to UK MP’s the answer is yes! The findings of a recent report simply advises us to have two alcohol free days a week. C’est vrai!

If you’re weaning yourself back onto wine or thinking about giving it up for lent, either way you’ll be looking for a treat that’s full of flavour to wake up your taste buds or memorable enough to keep you going until Easter. Try a sophisticated Shiraz from Australia’s McLaren Vale. The Battle of Bosworth Shiraz Viognier is a great example of an elegant fruity red, laden with ripe black fruit flavours, blackcurrant, liquorice and delicate herbal notes make it the thinking drinkers Aussie shiraz. Great with curry. And if your self restraint wasn’t already enough this bottle’s got extra feel good factor because it’s organic too!

Mr B and I were given a bottle of The Battle of Bosworth Shiraz Viogier 2008 as a wedding gift but I also found it available online at organic wine specialists www.vintageroots.co.uk for £15.50.
