Neither Monis nor Vergenoegd.

But it does start with the same letter as Monis.

It was Muratie. Their NV Cape Ruby. It wasn't bad.

Better than the Allesverloren 2011 Cape Vintage. That tasted like a cold stabilised and filtered ruby; I was not impressed. It wasn't up to the standard of a good LBV like Sandeman.

Ray - you're up.

There should perhaps be an analogy to the Bishop of Norwich in this thread. :wink:

Seizing ancient powers.

Explain “cafe humid palace”.

As you would surely expect, there is a good answer relevant to the business of this forum. But what?

Two clues: “stick hush goes”; “congratulations hope organs”.

No. A blind fumble in the dark, in vain.

It isn’t entirely clear, but “tile.sweat.craft” might be nearer. Or “stands.plots.varieties”.
