A FRIEND once told me that she thought all capital cities were male. Whether you agree, I think London is less in touch with its feminine side than most.
Pictured, the former City Post Office building being cleanly demolished from the ground up. A curious spectacle.
A wine free from gender issues is Vadiaperti's '06 Coda di Volpe or 'Vixen's Tail' [Bedales]. This is a Princess. Couth mineral notes underpin this pale, slightly green, whisper of a wine from Campania. A fresh haze indicates her attractive youth.
Not suprising to find flavours from the periodic table considering the volcanic temperament of this area. Indeed Pompeiian vineyards within lava spitting distance of Vesuvius were re-sewn in the mid 90's.
