Final stages of a seven stage 12 hour charge complete.
t this point the battery's have not settled down.

One hour latter the positive posts of which are an extension to the battery's main posts show 12.81v this will always show a lower voltage as it's an out-side 'accessory' rather than the battery's, main posts.

Two hours latter the true state of both batteries show 13.1v and 13.2v first battery is a year older than the second in-line, either age or not quite charged as both should show identical voltages.
I'm not being picky over 0.1 of a volt. Hence I now have two batteries at a capacity of 80-100 percent full charge at13.2v, 60 hours with out a recharge, is more than enough for the coolers.at less than * @ 32-O C

Why do I need two batteries to keep the temperatures down, as to very expensive wines on board including an expensive whiskey that cost 475 dollars for 750mil then there is local smoked Salmon not Atlantic salmon, Stay tuned folks there are cheese shops at Deloraine to be found, Winery's at Bothwell, Midlands chocolates, and fresh bread at OATLANDS....That goes with the specialist cheese, type that I'm after.

The Highlands are out so the trip will take seven hours plus between respite stops.

Local wines are not cheap as to being a boutique blends but nice.

Liquid Honey get out your credit cards as this little is a very expensive wine, and one is now sold out.

Spare socks for additional stock, for the cellars at home. Sure to be something that takes my fancy on this trip to Marrawah.

More like 'middle of the road' prices methinks!

Also would have thought sav blancs only had a 'worthwhile' lifespan of 2 years with 3 being the exception to say the least.

As for for cellaring a 2004 sav blanc......................hardly a good vinegar on fishn chips methinks whereas the rieseling may have considerable life left in it, although possibily not that of a German rieseling.

As for the 'Ratafia'.............if its 'the' liqeuer then 'use by date' shouldn't be an issue but according to the 'wine snots' a liqeuer is not really a wine.

Coffee is optional, you have the time to select and choose some of the best of 50 cheeses on the globe.
Its the taste that via selecting the right cheese to compliment a particular Desert Wine that is over 50 dollars a bottle 750 mil not 375mil of which was not bottled in 2004 rather the first batch was produced in 2004 and left to mature in oaken barrels , till bottled.

Arriving on the last rays of sunset, running dead on empty as the pub was closed, and the service station too.
Running on empty copy (Custom).jpg
A perfect wine to enjoy on a cold Winters night, of a Noble Sauvignon Blanc produced in the Cygnet region of Tasmania down on the Esperance, this is a low elevation location by the Houn's waters edge, where in 2004 the harvest,was produced and eventually bottled without the use of additives or out-side-bulk grapes to reduce the costings.

This particular taste of the Panorama Wines were enhanced by vintage conditions in the Huon regions to allow Botrytis Cinerea, noble rot. resulting in a unique one off wine that has a full-nose honey-taste, with an oaken after-smell leaving a cool sense of excellence, complimented with a selection of Huon Premium Gravadlax's Tasmanian salmon,hand- cured with Brandy black pepper and dill.'Add three cheeses to the board'' with Tasmanian Ashgrove Heritage Signature Camembert and Apricot and Brandy cream cheese.

The evening is finished off with a Riesling produced in the Derwent vineyards at Granton vineyards of Julian Alcorso on the opposite side of MONA on the Berriedale peninsula. Of which Julian's father first started the Moorilla Winery estate back in the late 40's,this wine is fully complimented by it's elegant perfumed aroma, with a taste of lime fruits and bright acidity, to add to the flavor of enjoyment we have a plate of the Huon's smoked salmon, with creamy Lavender cheese. exclusive to to Ashgrove.

It's all In the taste, with great wine, good food,and wonderful company to simply just relax, and enjoy the night.
Richard
