Movie Wine

We went to see Pirates of the Carribean the other day in attempt to escape the relentless, triple digit, heat. We needed refreshments & while sneaking in a bottle of wine, a corkscrew & glassware would not be impossible, it would just be too much trouble & not worth the trouble. So we opted for the 4-pack of "Little Joeys".

The four mini-bottles are equivalent to a whole 750ml bottle of wine, so four was just enough. They were screw cap of course (do they even make corks that small?), so no need for a cork screw (do they even make corkscrews that small?). All we needed was a little carafe (Ok...that joke is old may now throw rotten fruit at the screen).

The poison of choice was 2004 Alice White Shiraz. It was a simple, very fruity concoction. Not a lot going on but lots fruit. No pepper, meat or smoke, that you expect from a good Aussie Shiraz. It was not unpleasant, just what I have come to expect from giant producers like Alice White.

It was easy to sneak into the theatre & that was it's best virtue. It also made you feet like a wine-o drinking out of the bottle.....giant, a forty-foot wine-o.

    I thought for sure you were going to talk about White Shiraz, the ultimate throw-some-shrimp-on-the-barbie bottle for folks who don't want to drink red.

    Sometimes wine marketing can be stranger than fiction, but I guess not this time. So how was the movie? Or maybe when your wine tasting notes include a movie pairing, it's best not to say...

    The perfect match for the movie was rum, but it was the matinee & a Wednesday, & while there is nothing wrong with drinking rum on a Wednesday, in the early afternoon, we are just not that hardcore (or our livers anyway).

    The movie was great, but of course I liked the first one better. The effects were incredible. I got confused a couple of times & had to get La to clear some things up, but I totally blame the tiny bottles of wine for that.
