2006 Claymore Deja Vu Rose

WNEMAKERS: Ben Jenneret
GRAPE VARIETIES : 85% Grenache / 15% Malbec
REGION: 100% Clare Valley
OAK MATURATION :A portion of our Clare Valley Grenache is hand harvested a little earlier to make this refreshing yet voluptuous Rose wine. Fermentation and storage in stainless steel produces a light bodied wine with vibrant primary fruit characters.
COLOUR: Pale, pretty pink.
BOUQUET: Delicate and pretty floral aromas waft along with fresh raspberry notes and musk lollies.
PALATE: Fresh berry flavours mingle with confectionary and cherries in the mouth. This is a generous rose wine with good length and wonderfully intense fruit profile. Green apple crispness balances fruit sweetness in the mouth.
GENERAL TECHNICAL NOTES: The freshness of this style is best preserved under screw cap - enjoy in its youth.
SERVE: Best served with a light chill. A great partner to summer grazing lunches or a lazy brunch of poached eggs, salmon and asparagus.
ALC: 12.5%
pH: 3.4
TA: 6.9g/L

Awards & Reviews
"Grenache and Malbec blend from the Clare Valley, South Australia. Pale, rose petal pink. Fresh fruity nose with a hint of strawberries on the palate and some grapey sweetness. Easy drinking style."
e-vine by Martin Field - June 2007

"Gloriously fruit driven, it delivers a litany of berry fruit aromas, quite ripe and fresh, upfront Ð and delicious. Indeed strawberries, raspberries and cherries abound from the nose. Quite fresh, lively acidity supports the ripe semi-sweet fruit flavours and gives it good balance and high drinkability along with a savoury lingering finish. Try it with pan fried garlic prawns."

I know nuts about wines thats why the information was ripped straight from the original website.
I remember and No im not drunk, the one I or rather we had was 2005 not 2006.
anyway, i realise yup.....alcohol do have an effect on relaxing people and allowing the mind to loosen up enough to spill the bottled up emotions and thoughts.
and the therapeutical effect the next day where u feel refreshed and ready to start all over again. its as if life has ended last night and today's another chapter, an empty page...
I dont have a good threshold for alcohol, at least i believe so.
Just 1 dose, i was already rambling on and on and on without feeling guilty.
I admit i was a lil tipsy by the time we left The Wine Hut. And we were only halfway done with the pink nectar...
on the way home on NR6, i was dosing in and out of consciousness, and its the first time in so many years that i allowed my mind to drift where it wanted to... thinking, dreaming, imagining.
the night air was good and the company before that was even better.
maybe i should do this more often... the only problem is locating the people who are willing to be my company, people who i am relax enough to drink with...

another day at work... slacking in between

yea as always its been a whole long while.. i always have so much to write, so much to ponder but i always forget them especially when my brain keeps spinning. and i mean it when i say spinning. LITERALLY it is spinning.
exams are round the corner and i'm still slacking.. i wasted deepavali holiday, and im wasting my free time now doing this instead of looking at AQM lab report. damn if i pull through
im slacking in the office 2 minutes to lunch time because the doc's not in.
why? ahh~ our dear patient lor what else? he's not gotten a wink at all and if he doesnt get he's needed nap after the last patient before lunch, i think he'll collapse.
me? i think im not that good either...
i feel dizzy most of the day. even now staring at the screen, i can feel the spin starting already... dunno if its low blood count or wat? but since im still alive and annoying, im okay.
i hope so.
its a wonder i survive yet another 'heart attack' while my friends say "not again~" with a slap to their forehead. most of you might not know what happened and im not going to play clever and put it up on my i-thought-nobody-reads-this blog. at least im proud of myself this time. real smug about it actually! see, im still talking, joking and i still pay attention to class. OOPS! buahahahah...!
okay im a lil' sore that we are not that close but watever lar~ life's like that. just take it with a huge grin and thank goodness that it coulda've been alot worse, much worse. (^^)

another lost stranger... ask where colonoscopy...? so rude somemore! aiya i lost my train of thoughts.... nvm... time for lunch...

im late for lunch can you believe it?! 16 minutes late... ciao!

finally work ends. clean up smelling of the stinky scrub, im back trying to think what was it i wanted to fill in here....? forgot liao... 545pm... late again... what happen to my 530 sharp?
im so darn drained especially when its a full clinic today... super drained. but at least its a good day for me so far~ everything went right-on-track... well sort of anyway~ good enough for me. man it feels darn good to be moving 1 step ahead of ur boss =P

okay i want to leave already. tomorrow's another looooooooooong day. half day work and a class to go to... bo bian... i love $... okay maybe im not... i always believe having enough to be a happy me is good enough. having the cash to buy what i want, eat what i want, and extra to make the people around me happy is enough cash already~ okay so you dont believe me... well do i even care? harhar~
okay i really better leave already! its 555pm! HOLY SHYT!! i've got a dinner to attend! damn i dont even remember and im not dressed for it.... oh no.... better run! burbye~!!
