Well did you get your entry in for the Du Toitskloof SA Wine Writer Competition? They may be on the wrong side of the mountain but they were certainly on the money as far as subject matter goes – global climate change as it’s been a freezing spring so far in Cape Town. Should have suggested ice wine as a style for SA to adopt. Today is also the closing day for Fine Brandy By Design’s design a mobile brandy bar competition. Have entered that one too – fingers and toes crossed!
Meanwhile getting ready for next month’s exhibition at the Pendock Wine Gallery @ Taj which is unfortunately too small and “intellectual” for cottaging Whales to fit into, according to reports on the trollosphere. This show promises to be a humdinger with Ozymandias, grand voivode van volstyse, (that’s much classier than a MW) under construction at a secret location in the Swartland. Move over Swartland Revolution, this show will be way cooler and more original than yours.
