It’s that time again.
Despite flood, sickness and other minor plagues hitting the Graham household, the time has come to replenish the cellar once again – especially now that I’m about to send a bunch of wines off to auction.
I’ve already added some of the new 2020 Te Mata Coleraine to the list this month (pre-ordered). Also in the shopping cart is some Herve Souhaut St Joseph (the Sainte Espine) and a bottle of 2017 Clos Mogador. So plenty to look forward to. I feel like I’m still missing some decent Chablis though, and the price rises of recent vintages are doing my head in. I keep meaning to buy more Bannockburn Chardonnay & Pinot, because I just like them.
What about you? What are you buying this month?
There has been limited drinking over the past week or so, but I can confirm that the new Range Brewing Back in Time WCIPA is delicious. Also, I had some of the Mountain Culture Psychonaut – the first in the mind-bending 10% alc microdosing series – and it was surprisingly drinkable. A huge beer, but an impressively balanced one (in context) with this texture that seems silken, despite the alcohol and bitterness.
Next week brings an excuse to open a few tasty bottles, as I’m headed to Canberra for the 2022 Winewise Championship (one of the more enjoyable wine shows on the calendar) so I’ll have more to report after then.
