Lost the Plot – Sweet Dreams Red (Carton)
“Sweet dreams are made of these, who am I to disagree, I’ve travelled the oceans and the seven seas, everybody’s looking for something.” So said Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics back in the 80’s. Well if they had performed at a Leeuwin Concert and then wandered up to Bettenays, they would have found them here and saved a lot of time and effort. Not to mention a relationship breakup and a publicity meltdown.
So here it is. Or here they are. If you like a little bit of a tutti fruity hit in your wine, this will rapidly climb into your personal top 10. Whether you are a regular or one of the Tourists (Annie and Dave had a previous band called the Tourists-geddit?) you are sure to enjoy the sheer gluggability of this little number. We’ll spare you the tasting notes but suffice to say the aroma is-nice and the flavour is winelike, melodious, soft and dangerously drinkable. So sit back with your frightwig on, crank up a flock of seagulls and get a (lost plot) dog up ya.
