Officially autumn, but hoping for a late summer that stretches through until late April, finger crossed.

The year is charging along New Zealand grapes, Damson plums, peaches, nectarines, sweetcorn, juicy tomatoes, aubergine and fragrant herbs.

Days are shortening and there is aways a slight feeling of melancholy as autumn proceeds.

Still time for a glass or two of rosé, pouring Palliser Estate, Man O War Pinque and our French rosé,  Chateau du Galoupet, rich body with an aromatic complexity of exotic fruits and citrus fruits.


As always all wines by the glass, carafe and bottle.
