Wine of the month
BK Wines One Ball Chardonnay $27
Rock n' Roll is the feel of Brendon Keys wines, and these are the wines you buy for an experience. 2011 was – for the most part - an average year for reds, but whites have unfortunately been tarred by the same brush, and the truth is there are some amazing wines, especially Riesling & Chardonnay. This is one to possibly put down for a year or two to see its complexity come to light, but a great modern chardonnay that should be drunk not to cold to see its true colours.
Florence + the Machine
Live at the Royal Albert Hall
Most would be aware of the magnificent golden
tonsils of Florence Welch, but who could know how well their songs would
translate into this Acoustic setting with an orchestra? The songs sound
stripped, but are layered with a full sting orchestra and choir. The musical
equivalent of our Ambriel's Gift 2010 – Elegant, complex, layered, bold,
refined, and magic to the senses. Only available on Youtube I believe.
"Here's to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one.
A pretty girl and an honest one.
A fine wine - and another one."
