    A bottle of KBS from Founders has just been opened and is about to be sipped, sampled, and savoured.

    Just opened a bottle of Pouilly-Fuissé, a glorious French white wine from Burgundy, made from the Chardonnay grape.

    Actually, I had three.

    A terrific beverage.

    Arsenal won. (In spite of themselves).

    I, er, acquired a crate of this sublime beverage not so long ago.

    And am happily working my way through it....

    I still have a crate of CBS from Founders to greet...

    Oh how I wish there was CBS left chez moi, alas I have just a few bottles of KBS. Not the worst consolation!

    I spotted that in the wild, today, but shall forego risking a purchase until I next re-visit that store.

    For now, I am sipping a beer from the invariably Buxton brewery, an India Red Ale called High Tor.

    Left Hand Nitro Stout is very good stout. I have had many of those.

    Sipping my second beer of the night, also from the Buxton Brewery.

    This is called Red Wolf, and is a sour fruit beer. Very tart and tasty.

    An Austrian wine this evening, white, which is made from the Grüner Veltliner grape.

    The wine is from Müller, and is a Kremstal Reserve and a Gold Medal winner.

    It has been a while since having a Müller wine, will put that one on my buy list, thanks.

    Actually, when I bought it yesterday, I wasn't concentrating - seduced by the Gold Medal (from 2017) and the fact that the wine is produced from old vines.

    Candidly, I thought I was buying a good Riesling; this is a little lighter than a good Riesling, but has that tight, mineral structure that I like, some heft, and an elegant crispness that almost disguises the fact that this is actually a pretty hefty (abv 13.5%) wine.

    By way of conclusion: I recommend it.
