Birthday in­spi­ra­tion

Decanter - - LETTERS -

I HAD BEEN ag­o­nis­ing over what to drink for my 65th birthday, which ar­rived rather too soon and with­out warn­ing. Lo and be­hold, my au­gust edi­tion of De­canter ar­rived in the mail with the an­swer, in the ‘Wine Leg­end’ slot: Te Mata, Col­eraine 1998.

I hap­pened to have a bot­tle (sadly only one) in my cellar, so felt I was be­ing guided to that by the ar­ti­cle. I’m so glad I took the hint. I opened it with my wife and a cou­ple of friends, to ac­com­pany my birthday din­ner and we en­joyed ev­ery drop of the great­est new Zealand Caber­net blend we have ever tasted.
