The juxtaposition of “Yoga for Wine Lovers” Harold’s Planet does it again!

I LOVE wine! I can drink more wine after I do Yoga. Wait … wait … wait … a brilliant idea from Harold’s Planet … COMBINE WINE & YOGA!!!  YES … YES … YES!

If the Yoga isn’t enough I can do some do some Vino Therapy … BRILLIANT!

Chateau L’Arrosee 1995 with Lamb Shanks

Chateau L’Arrossee 1995 – Great Wine, fresh acidity, linear, a couple of bumps in the structure. Good core of juicy vibrant  fruit. Perhaps falling a bit short.  Still needs more time. Definitely a food wine. Cooking Lamb Shanks to go with this baby.

Mostly Merlot with about 20% Cab Franc & 20% Cab Sauv.

Fun Grand Cru wine from St Emillion, Bordeaux, South West France.

Yummy equals Yes, Lambchop equals No, maybe 1 in a few more years.

1997 Yering Station Reserve Chardonnay, Filthy Good Vino with beautiful casseroled veal from Brenta's

 

1997 Reserve Chardonnay’s peaked starting to fall away. Had a ’99 Reserve Chardonnay a few months ago. Big difference to 99 Reserve Chardonnay which is still fresh as a daisy and gets a yes to #yumminess and #1lambchop. Great length, acidity and texture.

Sharing a plate and glass with the beautiful Maree tonight!

Dreams do come TRUE! My 300 bottle Wine Cellar is done! Awesome!

For years I’ve been wanting to have my own cellar to store all my #FilthyGoodVino.  Finally it’s done. A cellar that will store 300 bottles of the finest wines from the collection that are ready to drink.

It all began a couple of months ago when I hacked through the plaster into a void below a stairwell.  Turns out the builder had planned to make use of the space and had already lined ready for use.  For some reason at the last minute he just plastered it up.

Get ready to be jealous – My other 2,100 bottles are stored in an underground cellar, in the perfect environment for gentle maturation.

STAGE 1: HACKED THROUGH THE PLASTER TO REVEAL MY FUTURE WINE CAVE
