Wine Of The Week

In celebration of only two days to go until Friday, Father’s Day coming up and #WineWednesday trending, we are taking the time to introduce you to the new FAT bastard family member.

Affectionately named the ‘blushing’ bastard the gorgeous salmon pink FAT bastard Pinor Noir Rosé 2017 is dry yet smooth, creamy and bursting with fruit. Here are a few reasons why you should pair fat bastard with your favourite gourmet meals or your favourite group of people to celebrate life with.

 

Why FAT bastard?

When Thierry and Guy first created these delicious wines, they did it with gusto. They poured their hearts, souls and great dollops of generosity into every bottle. In fact, it was a great big discovery (in winemaking terms) that led to the name ‘FAT bastard.’ It comes from having left the wine on the lees for a lot longer than usual, which allowed it to develop more fully and completely. And when tasted, there was simply no other way to describe it other than: “Well, now that’s a FAT bastard!”

 

 

This tradition of creating full-bodied wines to be enjoyed with bellyfuls of laughs and good-natured cheer continues today. Whether it’s a celebration, a kuier or a “COME ON OVER!”, there’s a FAT bastard (or two) waiting to be opened. “Much like a glass of FAT bastard wine, life should be filled to the brim and enjoyed in large, delicious gulps”. This is the voice of Mr. b. He’s gold, he’s grand and he lives life at the big end of large! He’s the grand-daddy of FAT bastard wines, loving them with great gusto.
