August’s best of list – 2016
Best Wine – Tirant Rotllan Torra 2001 from Priorat in Spain. This wine does not seem to have been made since 2009 but there some earlier vintages available and they are all good. Snap them up while you can. Excellent value and a stunning wine.
Best restaurant – Otto e Mezzo, Alexandra Building in Hong Kong. Perfect Italian cooking by 3 Michelin starred chef Bombana.
Best film – The Huntsman – Winters War. Enjoyable nonsense with a great cast. I particularly liked Nick Frost and Rob Brydon as dwarfs.
Best Music – Ambulance by The Amazing. Not that amazing but very chilled.
Best Book – The Ladybird Book of the Hangover and the Ladybird Book of the Mid-life Crisis. I managed to get through both of them on the same day! Very funny and oh so true.
