Enjoyed a glass of Xabregas ‘Artisan ZD’ at Halo Restaurant this week. Straw yellow – nectarines and baked apple aromas with yeasty overtones. Creamy palate, stonefruit flavours cut through with fine acid and citrus notes – gorgeous!
When I am reading a book by an unfamiliar author – I like to google about them before I write the review – Elaine Crowley was born in 1927 and died in 2011. I also discovered Elaine came late to being a successful writer – so there is hope for me! I am only a tenth of the way through ‘Wayward Angel’ – already Elaine has my heart pounding with anxiety over 14 year old Irish girl Angel, a vulnerable child born in 1900 with only her mother to protect her – am hoping for a safe and happy ending for Angel!
