Bottle count

This was the count from a dinner last night. From left to right, a serious fizz from one of Italy's best makers, a smasher from McLaren Vale, probably the best Monferrato Rosso (a blend of Barbera and Cabernet Sauvignon) from hereabouts and with the chocolate pudding to finish off a simply wonderful Moscato d'Asti. The latter is so pleasant and light (5ยบ) that it's the sort of stuff you could have a good crack at for breakfast (but only at the weekend of course). The Aussie was a gift brought by hand from Oz. Impossible to find on the shelves around here. Apologies for the quality of the photograph, it was quite late.

Save some for Sunday? 12-48.

What a brilliant idea, photographing an evening's progression with such precision and order. In the 70s we didn't allow the landlord of our local to clear away the empty clear glass Newcastle Brown bottles until we'd been chucked out. But I never photographed the table, that bore an uncanny likeness to a bottle-washing plant.
