On the tasting table this weekend.....
2005 Gaia, Grosset, Clare Valley: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot blend produced from the highest vineyard in Clare Valley, at an altitude of 570 Metres. And it shows, such is the freshness and purity of the fruit. A wine of such ripeness yet restraint, finesse and exuberance; a style seldom seen in Australia. A monumental wine from ones of the worlds best producers - 27.50 2007 Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Boisset: Beautiful example of Burgundian Ponot Noir and particularly of the 2007 vintage. Fresh lush strawberry fruit and floral undertones with a classic hint of wild mushrooms. This is one for drinking now and 20 minutes or so in the fridge brings out the youthful and vibrant fruits even more - 12.95 Whites
2009 Margaret River White, Cullen, Western Australia: Vanya Cullen believes that great wines are made in the vineyard, hence the conversion of her vines to organic status. This fragrant, zippy blend of Sauvignon, Semillon, Chardonnay and Verdelho is delicious by itself or with a bowl of mussels - 12.95 2008 Marlborough Classic Riesling, Framingham, New Zealand: Entising white from Marlborough. Bouquet of perfumed, floral aromatics of jasmine and honeysuckle greets you, while the palate offers flavours of lime and orange citrus, stonefruit and mineral. The residual sugar in the wine is balanced with a backbone of firm, natural acidity giving a long, dry finish. Excellent with curries and fusion food - 11.95 Pop into the shop this weekend and sample these delicions wines and receive a 10% discount on any purchases
This is my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first moved here sometime in '04. I had been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar + voting for favourite places + things, + I hear it was a useful reference for others who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, the name comes from the name of a pretend paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
