Hambledon Vineyard, Fuji Provia 100F

We visited Hambledon Vineyard, makers of some of the World’s best sparkling wine.

We had a taste of the Classic Cuvee (Chardonnay 40%, Pinot Meunier 31% and Pinot Noir 29%) – a vibrant nose, quite fragrant with notes of apple and some elderflower. I found the palate quite creamy, again notes of apple and some pear, quite crisp as well. Acidity was very well balanced. A really superb sparkling wine, as good as any champagne I’ve tasted (and I’ve tasted quite a few) and much better than most.

I’ll buy a bottle next time I go home to Clanfield. We’re lucky to have this beautiful spot on out doorstep.

Some colour shifts with this Fuji Provia.

Broadhalfpenny Down Cricket Club, Fuji Pro 400H

Cricket is the World’s greatest game. The pillar upon which modern civilisation is built, it is the last bastion of democracy, equality, fair play and sportsmanship. Well, that’s what I think anyway. I really love cricket.

Taken upon the hallowed turf of Broadhalfpenny Down Cricket Club. (The Birthplace of Modern Cricket) This makes my village the birthplace of modern civilisation.
