Last Friday late evening, we met up at HH's place for our drinking session. 30 minutes into the session, Jazz and CJ made an announcement that they would be leaving Singapore, for good. Jazz had applied for and got a job posting to Toronto, Canada. The family including the kids will be relocating there before end of this year.
It was a sudden news for all of us.
While I felt happy for Jazz, both for her career and her personal reasons for the kids, I suddenly felt very sad that our closest drinking kakis are leaving. CJ and Jazz have been our drinking kakis, travel mates and close friends for years now. The images of our late night chats, family holidays, couple getaways, restaurants and bar hopping kept circling in my mind over the weekend until now as I draft this post of wine of the week.
Boy, we are so going to miss them but we just have to let the feeling sink in, treasure and enjoy the remaining months with them before end of the year. Glad that the families are going to Tasmania together coming December. Oh, and also the Standard Chartered Run that we had signed up together.
For sentimental reason plus I like the designer label on the bottle, I have picked Feudi del Pisciotto Frappato that CJ brought for this week's post.
Producer: Feudi del Pisciotto
Type: Red Wine
Frappato is a red Italian wine grape variety planted primarily in Sicily. It is believed to be a crossing of Sangiovese and another, so far unidentified, grape variety.
The wine is scarlet red. Fragrance of ripe exotic black fruit , floral and new oak aromas on the nose. Full bodied and firm.
I love the wine label on the bottle. It is not just to give the bottle a pretty face but it is also part of a collection drawn by Italian stylists in order to support continued restorations and charitable works throughout Sicily.
