Over Delivers ~ Laya 2013 Almansa D.O.P. #boldwines

Price: $13.99 The Laya 2013 is a great value for those looking for a big punch of flavour. If you are feeling bold and like a bull in a china shop, as my mother used to say, this is the wine for you. Dark almost black in the glass with a huge nose filling…

This is impressive. Solar Aid delivers solar powered lights to millions of Africans who currently live without electricity, which means they live without schooling, which means they live within a never-ending multi-generational cycle of poverty.

Good Drop ~ Chapel Hill 2013 'Parson's Nose' Shiraz #finessewine

Price: $17.99 I bought this wine because I was in the mood for a hedonistic fruit and baking spice explosion, and because McLaren Vale is the source of my favourite Aussie Shiraz’s. There is a lot more finesse in this wine than what I was expecting… and…

Its an eerie yellow morning out there, which feels odd because for the last however many days we can remember, we've been waking up to clear blue skies.

Word is, that the smoke from surrounding forest fires has blown our way causing the haze.  There's still a huge fire up around Squamish/Pemberton, plus Port Hardy is being evacuated up island, and I heard this morning cabins around Sproat Lake are being evacuated as a precaution. 

Hope we get some rain soon!
