I'm not angry,just slightly dissapointed.

At 134.5% alcohol it's not surprising that his spelling is affected

Out foxing tonight so no drink taken, but the sirloin from Aldi went down very well thank you. Just a light smear of horseradish was all it needed. A mug of strength 6 coffee to help keep me awake in the high seat and that was it.   Saw one fox and it departed at speed once it ran in down wind and then a pretty little muntie doe came out and had a mooch around.  Wind dropped and it was a very nice evening.

Check out "Chapel Down"in Tenterden, Kent. Not far from me. They have won lots of awards. "Carr Taylor" for sparkling wine (have beaten many Champagne's in the last few years). English wines have been beating most of the French ones.

(if your going to order something from Chapel Down, get them to throw in a few bottles of their IPA, Lager "Curious Brew"(made with Champagne yeast, strong flavour!!) and their cider. All worth a try.)

As you are in to red wine, the Denbies estate reds are very nice - nothing distinguished though.

I astonished an American friend who thought that he knew his wines with these.

Their white wines are very good.

I have a small winery close to here and purchased a few bottles.  The prices where twice what I could buy good Aussie wine for and the wine was nothing to shout home about.

The owners gave some excuse about the price because of some additional 'tax' they have to pay. Is this another constriction forced upon us by the EU to hopefully protect French wineries?

 

 

Yes, you see I have just clicked on the example put up by amateur and those bottles are double what I can buy from my local village store .....why?? when other wines are shipped halfway round the world.

We have the Camel Valley vineyard in Cornwall amongst others. They produce some very good wine especially the sparkling. The price is as said previously twice the price of the mass produced Aussie stuff, nothing wrong with most of it. But if you had a small vineyard producing small quantities of quality wine it is always going to be more expensive.

Yes, I agree that they are much more expensive than a decent Chilean red, and, indeed, not what I would be drinking as a norm, but, I am pleased that they can produce a very acceptable English red and their white wines bear up very well with the best of French. 

As I wrote, I first came across them when a friend invited us to Oregon, and we took him a selection of whites, reds and sparkling. He could not believe that the English could produce such good wine. (even the red).

As to why they are so expensive - well, small scale, quality production.

Small producers still need to make a living hence higher price per bottle. 

Much like new Zealand lamb. Can ship Galway round the world and be cheaper than home grown. 

At first it doesn't make sense.
