Penfolds Grange 1989

It is three weeks since I heeded my doctor’s advice and came off stimulant drugs. I will celebrate this landmark in the next couple of days by drinking a bottle of Penfolds Grange 1989.

I have heard mixed reports about Grange. But, rather like Petrus and Cheval B it is allegedly one of those wines you should try at least once in your life…before skulking back to more affordable wines like Pagodes and Forts

I have not decided on the accompanying meat however. Perhaps, like the wine, it should be Australian in origin - Kangaroo? Koala? Kookaburra? Unfortunately my sommelier buddies haven’t a clue. These are alien meats. So I might just have to settle for some mutton or a couple of rabbits. A hog roast might work as well

If anyone can give me advice on a suitable accompaniment, please email me at bohodotcom@yahoo.com
