Don't know the producer, but nice wine with lunch...

Not a barrel of laughs if you want to take your dog for a walk or enjoy the vineyards – plenty of gallows humour from the vignerons too with regard to various scenarios for the 2013 vintage. But everyone carries on! It seems I brought a bit too much wine back with me, the advantage of that is, whilst re-arranging the cellar, you come across many part-forgotten things! How could I forget 7-8 bottles of mixed 2006s from the ladies of Chenu? Looks like that will be getting some action soon Here’s a bunch of pics from my phone – I haven’t looked at my ‘proper’ camera yet!

Once more I find a reason not to write much in my diary. There was a little Zweigelt last night though…

Another rare post from the other side of the world. Walked this morning on the Fox Glacier. Timing was good, by p.m. Everything was cloudy. Moving closer to Central Otago tomorrow…
