2018 Highlights Week 24: Chilean wine

We finally drank this wine which had been dragged all over South and Central America and survived intact and had had nine months or so to settle down. Very nice.

Some days you need one of these after work.

James and I found some time for a quiet evening drink together. After being away, nice to find some together tome.

A year in the life 2016 #238: Charles Melton dinner

A chance to drink a lot of Charlie Melton wines is not to be turned down. And this was an excellent opportunity as we got to drink three of Melton’s best wines at six or so year intervals. All delicious, but you really could taste the difference and those 01 wines are drinking really beautifully right now. 

One really can’t complain about a night on which one gets to drinking many glasses of Nine Popes, but we were a little disappointed in the food, which was a bit same-y and just not very inspiring. Sage seemes to go through these cycles – sometimes it is amazing and sometimes meh. I was particularly disappounted in my kangaroo which I had really trouble even cutting – maybe better knives?

Nonetheless, the wone was amazing and the company excellent, so worth it in the end.

A year in the life 2016 #229: best lunch of the year

As usual, there was a lot of lovely wine and excellent company. We were a bit disappointed with the food that didn’t make it up to the standard of previous years at the Boat House. But we didn’t let that stop us having a good time – and inevitably buying more wine than we should!

A year in the life 2016 #39: pink


It is hard to go past a Turkey Flat rosé. Really has become the go-to rosé for us of late.

A day in the life 2016 #8: best friends


One of the big bonuses of six months in Adelaide is that I will get to see my best friend a lot more. We had a great night of talking and drinking too much wine and just enjoying the chance to spend time together.

And we saw this sunset.
