The oldest wine we have ever drunk here at Castle Campbell was this 1933 Australian port at 70 years old (Australia is very good at making fortified wines, within a limited style range.) Wines this old tend to be met more in the way of academic-historic enquiry than of gastronomic pleasure. Thus I found myself, after realising I'd forgotten to decant it, inordinately curious about the magnificent pile of sediment in the bottle, and wondering how it would look in the glass:
I was hoping wee hayley campbell would do me a write-up of the event at the Bishopsgate Institute with Iain Sinclair, Alan Moore and Michael Moorcock. But instead she links me to the one by Andrew Hickey. Good line here, but I misread it because i thought he said pet instead of poet. Must get my eyes checked.
Moorcock was fascinating on this subject, and I'd like to hear him talk more about it - he was essentially riffing on Shelley's line about poets being the unacknowledged legislators of humanity, talking about how "we can't get real change, and the only way to get actual change is to change the rhetoric"
