I was given a bottle of Grange Hermitage by a grateful client some years back.
Grange is this country's best red wine. The current pricing has gone beyond stupid because Chinese buyers buy it in bulk & it gets traded in the secondary market like an asset. The more the wine company charge the more the Chinese buyers want it. I have never bought a bottle probably never will
News flash people its a drink
The bottle I have is 1988 ,looks in good order.
Its 2 weeks before we leave for New York, 6 months since Linda & I started up. Pass the cork screw.
1988 was this country' s bi centennial ,first actual white settlement 1788 Sydney Cove.
So tonight its getting drunk.
