Another Chilean Cloudy Bay

What is it about Leyda? The maritime-influenced cool-climate Chilean wine region seems to be over-delivering massively at the moment. This evening we tried the Leyda Garuma Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2005 Leyda Valley, Chile, which has a massive grassy presence and superb concentration. It's a very full, fresh Sauvignon of real quality. This was from Great Western Wines in the UK. Must dash to catch the Ashes highlights. England are taking a bit of a beating, but it is compelling viewing. If I had sky sports I'd be nocturnal at the moment. Good thing that I don't.

Taking a bit of a beating? Humiliated more like.

You know, watching the fourth day highlights made me think England could compete, but I still worry about our bowling. I'd be tempted to include Mamood and Panesar for the Adelaide test at the expense of Giles and Anderson/Harmison - at least if we then fail, we go down fighting. But with cricket, anything can happen. That's what makes it so exciting.
