Does that have the same meaning as the equivalent in the Douro? If so, wear a seat-belt and hold a strong-walled inflated balloon in front of your face at all timesJacobH wrote:a Catalonian tee-total driver
Thankfully, I think the Rivesaltes region is basically flat. Around Maury and Banyuls, the same probably applies, thoughDRT wrote:Does that have the same meaning as the equivalent in the Douro?

No, I haven’t, but when I was drinking some undiluted pomegranate juice a couple of weeks ago, I did think it would make excellent fortified wine: very fruity; lots of sugar; and loads of tannin.RAYC wrote:Hmmm...will get hold of one this week to give a try sometime. Have you tried the fortified pomegranate wine from waitrose yet...? I must admit a soft spot for the very sticky/sweet Australian tawny they stock there, but that's a real guilty pleasure (almost like Golden Syrup straight from the tin...)
I haven’t tried that one, yet. Their non-vintage Maury is also pretty good at about the same price for a half-bottle.mpij wrote:Curently sipping away on Croix Milhas Rivesaltes Ambre no date but aged in oak for 3 years. Tesco is doing half bottles for £4.49. Lots of spice and citrus, quite nice for a change and compares well with tawnys I have tried(Warres Optima and a couple of own brands) may buy a few more but wo'nt bother with any panic buying.
