What Fiona McDonald drank on 04.06

Thought I’d take you up on the offer of sharing what I drank… not quite last night, but I successfully avoided my laptop all weekend so have only got around to it today. I’ve been ferreting around in my cellar and came across some wines (quite a few actually!) that should have been drunk a […]
