* TGIF *! Yup, it's Friday. The end of the week (for some), and for those of us who still have a few more days to go... there is nothing like a pre-weekend pick me up. We suggest a classic Riesling...

Hey Savoury, say hello to good friends Restraint and Elegance. Our old world style Pooley Pinot Noir 2014 is a real dark horse in a delicate kind of way. Makes for a very happy relationship we think? 😘 such a pity however that you're leaving us so soon. Must be those 94 sexy points you recently received. Bottoms up old friend!
