Have a been a bit lazy of late not posting up...

 

Was a good dinner, got to pop my Cros Parantoux cherry which was pretty epic. Theme was 9's vintages.

 

Was at Est. PDR as a last swansong before they close. (Friday night and place was only half full says a lot)

 

Latour was a 59, and the wine in the glass was it. (Amazing wine)

 

Didn't get photos of all of them...

Firing up the charcoal grill and on cooking duties for Mrs Mendes tonight.

 

In need of one or two cooking beers and have the Volnay breathing away in a decanter for dinner.

It has probably been evident from todays posts, but at the moment I'm sampling three or the four beers I put down for Christmas (home brew). My favourite so far is a cheeky American style Pale Ale. But I also have a Dark Ale and another Pale Ale. I have been experimenting with mixing The Dark Ale with the Pale Ale, and with the American Pale Ale.

 

I haven't finished my full appreciation yet, but so far the dark ale with the pale ale is a winner.

interesting, like a beer cocktail?

I'm sure there will be those from the "don't mess with it" camp - but hey you're making it so do as you please, let us know what you call the winning combo's

I'd post a more comprehensive evaluation, but Jack is insistent that he wants he wants to watch more puppy dog videos...

I'm phoneless so can't snap a pic of yet another low rent wine to off set the ambrosia that is on regular display here.💯

 

It's a very cheap-ish Rutherglen Durif  from that eternal optimist Mick Morris or one of his descendants.

2nd glass says it's good with char grilled lamb cutlets that have soaked in a pool of basil/chilli/lemon/macadamia oil/pepper mish mash in a bowl for a few hours (while I establish that a pineapple IIPA from some weird place in the North Island of Nzed is actually dishwater masquerading as hipster beard stiffener) and then religiously burnt on the char grill so we can advance the theory that charred fat on a steak or a lamb chop or cutlet is both delicious in the extreme and far from being cancerous is actually life affirming.

 

So there😉

first mix I've done with this Laceys Hill "Moreton Sunrise" botanical 

2:1 against the vermouth, stirred over decent single ice ball, glass well chilled

truly next level -  yummo!

I think this is one of the best value Shiraz wines. FFAC34CD-78A6-49E2-8B0A-D0F94DBC69AD.jpeg.01155096b2de6a7f9bdf496474933434.jpeg

^^ That'd be at least $100.. that bottle wouldn't it?

No it’s the entry point hilltops Shiraz. About $30 bottle.

 A quaffer from Dan's @ $28. If you like you Syrah (shiraz) big, rich soft and fruit sweet then look elsewhere. And maybe buys some Beats headphones from Jb Hi Fi on the way :cool:

 

Feral, game and animal notes amid an exotic spice background and a firm yet pliant tannin backbone. Very good concentration and will respond to a good decant. There is a hint of Brettanomyces yeast influence but it is part and parcel of the whole shebang. A good introduction to Rhone Valley Syrah.

Grabbed my Beats headphones earlier today, as catching up with an old buddy who loves them big, rich and sweet ....so pulled this one out to drag along for him.

 

He is a big fan of the style......😎🍷🍷👍

I'm so jealous.😭

 

I have nothing to offer in exchange😭

 

I have a fantastic story to tell about Rick Stein and our Pewsey Vale 14 bucks a bottle Cole's is getting out of them so yes I'll have every single bottle you have out the back... And fresh school prawns and the French Catalonia style Croquette's fried in panko breadcrumbs and a creamy béchamel sauce that I just served up.

 

 

 

But that would take too long(sighs of relief!)

 

And besides I'm still on the Pepperjack (after the Pewsey of course) but I'd like some 'Old Bastard' all the same.
