Pinot Grigio at 6.49 from Threshers. Disgraceful. But I finished my dissertation so deserved a drink

Tonight I paid 4.45 for a pint of Weissbier served in a plastic glass in The Masons Arms in Battersea. Despite the plastic glass it tasted ok but I think it's the most expensive pint I've ever drunk in a pub in the UK.

Blimey.

Were you overcharged?

Or, did the barmaid tug you off as she poured?

Like a welsh secertary returning to cottage, I am oft transported to that corner.

As we speak, and as if to prove the point, I am veritably glugging the aforementioned Don Balbino '94 reserva and am delighted - it drinks perfectly. It is fine and perfumed yet full fruit and surprisingly untannined.

It is a single estate wine and totally unfiltered so you really do need to decant if but to get rid of the mass of sediment, but also to open the wine up. At 14 years it's ready - I wouldn't leave longer.

I am currently writing an article on Priorats and Rais Baixas, so be prepared for worse as I work my way through the samples.

L'ermita, Finca Dofi and Clos Lobac here we come.

I queried it but that was the price.

At least I saw lots of sweaty ladies that had just done the Race for Life in Battersea Park.

Thank you.

Let me get this straight, not always an easy task. You are being paid to drink decent Spanish wine and write about it? Do you need a hand?

Full time journo?

it is a tough task I grant, one as publisher I would normally delegate to the gifted of word, however, for once, I thought I would show solidarity with those on the shopfloor and wrestle amongst them with words and the dread of description of products unkown.

It will be tough to go through those samples, but one must, as the hippy farmer said, plough on.

Stoic stuff, John.
Actually I would think this year's Rias Baixas might not quite be up to last year's. The weather was pretty rum up there last summer and autumn.

Lucky him if true - the new barmaid there looks like a young Bardot, albeit with an Aussie accent.

A Rondinella Rose Pinot Grigio from Italy.

In fact would it have to have been Italy as is the Rondinella grape only grown there? Dunno, but rings a feint bell.

Delicious anyway.

1st Cape , First Selection Chardonnay from Asda (3 for 10 each, bottle sells for 7 plus) seems very palatable, going to nip out for a couple of pints now)

What does one do if one want's a G&T but doesn't have any lime or lemon?

Going without is not an option.

Could apple or orange provide the necessary acidity in an emergency?

I'm currently drinking a G&T. My T had a twist of lemon already added into it and very nice it is as well.

And no, avoid apple or orange.
