Kumala Colombard Chardonnay 2009 - £3.49

On the bottle: A crisp and refreshing taste with tropical fruit flavours.
In my month: Vanilla and grape, Vanilla is the dominate flavour, also leaves a hint of strawberry lingering on the top of your palate.
Verdict: Excellent Colombard Chardonnay character, Middle Smiths and Markus Smith will be able to over indulge in this relatively inexpensive wine and not have any guilt after three or four bottles, enjoyed around the pool. Under Dickens do you get this wine down under? If so buy the odd bottle and enjoy. Mally of Musmead Manor has been quoted as saying that this is one of her favourite wines, and I believe has a case or two tucked away in her tipi.
What a game of cricket yesterday, Michael on his debut for Poole Town 4th opened the bowling and took 3 quick wickets. Poole won by 170 odd runs. but as a spectators, a very chilly game to watch, stiff breeze, overcast and the threat of rain saw us all huddle in warm coats, summer is almost here (officially )and we have not seen a hint of spring yet, bring on global warming.
Not to forget Robert, 100% in his maths exam and then followed up with another A+ for history, the boy does not put enough effort in. Come on lets get that all important homework down.


  1. We haven't come across Kumala vino's on this side of the world. Perhaps they've all fallen off the planet. I'll ask the wine purchaser to keep an eye out for it though. I must admit I'm a bit of a Savvy Blanc girl so its not often that Matt strays past the Sav Blanc shelves. I can definitely recommend any Sav Blancs from the Margaret River area in Western Australia, or from the Malborough region in New Zealand. Yum yum! Give them a try if you are lucky enough to come across one.
    I'm so proud of my wicket-taking and Maths-ace-ing brothers. What clever boys that are. They must take after their sister!!!! Well done little bro's! x

  2. Can I request more photo's on this blog site please?
