Last night, John Lodge of the Moody Blues hosted a lovely intimate gathering of ‘super fans’ at Hampton Court Palace for an exciting unplugged-style music session.
In the midst of a national UK tour, John and his band played new tracks and several Moody Blues classics while fans sat back and enjoyed his Krisemma range of wines including the 2nd edition red from Bordeaux and his beautiful 3rd edition Chardonnay 2014 from Elgin, South Africa.

I was invited along by John and his daughter Emily to introduce the sensational Krisemma Chardonnay produced by fellow Master of Wine and good friend, Richard Kershaw. What a fun night with great wines and a true legend of rock n roll!
Richard Kershaw’s Krisemma Elgin Chardonnay 2014 expertly marries the elegant restrained classicism of Burgundy with the vibrancy and energy of the cool climate Western Cape. Superb balance, wonderful white blossom and lemon zest purity and the most detailed, mineral-laden Meursault like finish. A very classy wine indeed. (Wine Safari Score: 94+/100 Greg Sherwood MW)
