So England regain the Ashes, convincingly in the end although I’m sure I wasn’t the only one getting nervous.
When Ponting and then Clarke were run out in short succession, I started hunting around for something bubbly to chill. We eventually settled on Vigneronne, which is a lambic with added grapes, brewed by Cantillon.
It certainly had the right champers-like consistency and lots of bubbles. It’s not as overwhelmingly sour as some of the other Cantillon offerings, with a slight sweetness towards the end. If we didn’t know it had grapes in, we probably wouldn’t have guessed, but all in all it made a nice refreshing drink for the garden. Iris is still our favourite though.
