Wine Review: Cuvée Secrète Organic

Grapes: Merlot / Cabernet Organic red from Jean Claude Mas. Pays d'Oc IGP. 14% abv. 2020.  Subtle organic red from Jean Paul Mas. Nice flavours of red and black fruit: strawberry, black cherry and plum come to mind. Also there was a savoury flavour I couldn't...

Bonfire Night Bottles

Bonfire Night Bottles

Lewes Bonfire usually goes with a bang, and Bonfire 2021 was no exception. We celebrated with a Shiraz from the Margaret River region in western Australia. This powerful, 14.5% alcohol, is from one of Australia's premium wine regions, and one of the few that lie...

Kulapelli Vineyard Reserva Especial 2013

This is a Chilean wine from the Maipo valley, made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere grapes. The winemaker is Alejandro Galaz. This was an easy drinking wine from Tesco's priced at around £6.00. I was interested in the vineyard name, which sounded Finnish. The...

Whisky Galore and more

Today I discovered Cadenhead's on Chiltern Street in Marleybone, between Bond Street and Baker Street. This is a small shop selling whisky, and a selection of other spirits. It looks from a different age, with rows of wonderful amber and heavy wooden barrels where you...

Along the Birmingham Canals

Birmingham's canals are like a vein of nature running through this busy industrial city. In the heart of the metropolis, the long boats are brightly coloured and slow-moving, and you can occasionally spot waterbirds and otters in their waters.

Knock-On Effects

Most of the time, people ignore my efforts, especially family. I don't think this is an unusual situation, and it is one that I have become quite used to; nowadays I actually quite enjoy being an unseen and unsung force for the common good, whether it's doing the...

Packing Plans

6th: I have been trying to think through what one would need to make a journey of two months by bike. Obviously the amount of clothing would depend on the season; a change of underwear, a warm sleeping bag, pillow, some form of mat to lay on, and a tent or hammock...
