WEATHER Windsurfing whinging and Wine

Sposed to be a big weather event all over today.
The Wind certainly came up out at the winery at 12:30, and then some rain well after dark at home.
Looks like no SW hurricane at all really,  Shallow Inlet did not look too good on the BOM.
I really wanna go for a good fast sail.
On some of the new gear around, I really miss being able to just walk into a shop and get the best, and flog the crap out of it.
Successfully made, sorry, fermented off 3 Shiraz batches last month.
I got 10 litres from My Portable Vineyard (below), 14 litres from Harrys grapes (thanks) and 25 litres from Longford Shiraz grapes.

They all have that cold climate pepperiness, just nice, will have to keep a close nose to them, don’t want it all to spoil.

 La Juice   10 Litres MPV 08 
I had a litre from MPV 2007 vintage, quite nice, used most to top up the 08s.
Sitting in the sun, reading CJ Cherryhs’ "Deliverer", no kids running around at the time…
