Age, other interests, business, and a whole lot of other reasons have meant that the blog has been empty of anything to do with wine, food or gastronomical pleasures.
I can't promise this reappearance guarantees permanent reports...but it is a start!
The silence did not mean I had stopped eating and drinking...just that I could not be bothered writing much down. Eat, drink...and mind your own business.
Corona has meant less enjoying my refound hobby...Snooker(Google it). What to do with so much time? Start to cook I thought...and I have. Nothing world beating...but good enough for my daughters to insist we would not get take-aways when they visit.
The first wine:
Grosset Polish Hill 2018
Very good right now, with potential to develop into something more with another 5-10 years of bottle age. What I love...notes of petrol...white flowers, slate on the nose.
Steely acidity, beautiful balance. I expected a harsher palate but this is already enjoyble. Citrus and pears.
