Now, there's a big flower and garden show on, so I suspect that's where we'll be for most of the day. The only other thing I hope to check out is a cleanskin store down at the market in Prahran. For those of you who aren't familiar with cleanskins - I didn't know what the word meant until yesterday - they're basically wines without labels or identifying marks (such as branded corks). They are required by law to have small labels on them telling you what grapes are in it, where it's from geographically, and what the vintage is, but that's it. It's kind of like that $2.99 coffee that Trader Joe's used to sell in the white cans - remember that? (The idea there was that they took leftover batches of arabica coffee and sold it cheaply, but you couldn't ever be sure what it was or if it was any good.) So, there's a store down there that sells nothing but cleanskins, and I'm feeling lucky. Who knows? Maybe there's a bunch of weird stuff they couldn't sell any other way - I know it's absurd but I'm fantasizing that maybe there's an experimental Hunter Valley vin de paille that was totally unsaleable, or that there'll be an accidental bargain from a large contract sale to a hotel chain that fell through. Who knows?
In any case, it's a beautiful day outside. I'm going to go make myself some coffee and think about what to do with the day.
