This is just a little reminder

Please we need articles for the silent auction
Something not too expensive
Something not too big
Something old or new
books and booze
Home made goodies
overseas or local
Come mites we want to make this auction the best ever


Only 16 more sleeps before the cricket and we need a lot more of the smaller articles
So all those talented mites make something
those that cannot make anything send some small article along
I see scouter and caracal have their goodies ready .. thanks you two.

Hi Hugh, We saw a very BIG, THICK version of Roberts' book at the Blue Crane Restaurant. If this is the same book, you can be sure that it will be mine!

:redface: :redface: :redface: It was a gift from my SO who can't quite understand my addiction to birding but is happy to pander to me. [He's a sweetie]
But when we're only in RSA for a couple of months every year, the book is really far too erudite for me and I'd rather someone else had more use from it.
[ John's very understanding and agrees to it going :wink: :wink: ]

food suggestions
The winemaker recommends this port with cheese, desserts or simply to be enjoyed on its own.

in the vineyard
Background
Allesverloren, situated on the south-eastern slopes of the Kasteelberg near Riebeek West, is the oldest estate in the Swartland Wine of Origin district and is renowned for its red wines and port.

The farm, which dates back to 1704, began producing wine exactly a century later. In 1872 Allesverloren was acquired by Daniel Francois Malan and has remained in the Malan family for five generations.

Winemaker Danie Malan and his late father, Fanie, were among the wine pioneers of the Swartland, ably demonstrating the outstanding wine growing potential of what was once considered the breadbasket of the Cape. While wheat remains the major crop in the region, increasing numbers of wine farms are established each year to take advantage of the beneficial terroir.

The seven cultivars from which the port is made came from trellised vineyards, grown in Malmesbury shale at between 270m and 340m above sea level. Planted from 1954, the vines received no irrigation.

about the harvest
The grapes were harvested fully ripened at 26° Balling in mid-March.

in the cellar
After harvesting the wine was blended before ageing in wood for just under two years (20 months) in old oak.
