We are lucky to have a winemaker running an independent, local bottle shop. Jared Dixon stocks the Clunes Cellars as if it was his private cellar. Currently he has the gifted Mike Hayes' wines from the Queensland Granite Belt's Symphony Hill, a distinctive label featuring a cello, almost coloured-block-coded for different grape varieties. To drink the Granite Belt is to drink something different than expected of South Australia, or even the NSW Hunter Valley. To drink the Granite Belt's Verdelho and Pinot Gris is to drink something much lighter than expected. The 2014 Pinot Gris is the palest of pale lemon silk in colour with just the slightest tinge of pink, so light it could be hallucinatory. It smells of the lemon combined with pineapple. On the palate it's astringent with unripe pine coming through.
1. Freshen Sponges:
Make your sponge last longer by soaking it in 4 tbs of Bicarb Soda and warm water.
Instead of shampoo, try using 1-2tbs of Bicarb Soda in 1 cup of water, then rinsing with 1-2 tbs of apple cider vinegar in warm water. Your hair will be clean and shiny with more volume
