Krone recently sent me a beautiful picnic basket filled with mouth-watering hand made treats and two bottles of their still Chardonnay/Pinot Noir.
This blend is my absolute favourite wine so the arrival of said basket delivered great excitement for me.
I thoroughly appreciated the crisp, fresh bouquet and I foresee that this wine will accompany me to many occasions in the future.
“An unexpected twist” - I had to appreciate the playful double entendre that Krone had (I’m assuming, intentionally) provided; the theme of the basket and the innovative helix cork, which lets be honest, really gives this bottle of wine the spirit of spontaneity.
This is a wine that is ready to be enjoyed wherever, whenever.
I had to decide on a setting that would compliment the idea of innovation.
Something a little different…
I must admit that my first thought was stuck on the notion of romance, however since my partner does not drink, I was forced to really expand on my initial idea. I had an epiphany;
Why do we maintain that the notion of romance is exclusively reserved for a lover or significant other?
Google tells me that, aside from being a noun, “Romance is a quality or feeling of mystery, excitement, and remoteness from everyday life.”
I can definitely say without a shadow of doubt that my very close friends offer me exactly that.
Spoiling my friends in this way can be a bit self-indulgent but the beauty of it? I get to share in the fun unashamedly without the need of a corkscrew or clean-shaven legs.
That’s the kind of spontaneity I can really get behind.
