Wine of the week deal!

Dunnes have this down to €8 though I’m not sure how long that’s for. Unlike the sickly, confectionary pink hues you’ll see on supermarket shelves, this is a lighter salmon/copper colour. It’s from the large, but illustrious producer, Lorgeril.

The Chateau itself is in the small hamlet of Pennautier, a few minutes drive from Carcassone. It’s the “Versailles of the South”. Okay, I added that bit but they did host Louis XIII, who left his bed behind him.

The AOC is Cabardès which allows for (or insists on) a mix of grapes from the Atlantic (i.e. the Bordeaux) grapes and those from the Med. This has Cab. Franc, Merlot, Grenache and Syrah.

Anyway, behind the big producer and the big Chateau is a beautifully crisp, soft rosé. Really refreshing and at a nice refreshing price of €8. Pick up a few, you’ll want to go back for more.

Why there has been an increase in Android TV Boxes for sale in Australia?

We have heard a lot over the last few months of a reasonably new piece of technology that has taken Australia by storm and that is the Android TV Box that allows you to play TV over the internet directly on to your own TV without the need for any satellite dish or cable connection. This is particularly useful for those people living in apartment blocks that are not allowed to have satellite dishes on their own building. Usually in this case the tenants only have an option of signing up with an expensive cable company that have the rights for that particular building.

Up until recently this was their only option to watch TV but now with the android TV box they have another much more affordable option. To use an android box all you need is a good internet connection and you can watch TV over the internet without paying a cable company high monthly prices.

According to https://www.androidtvboxes.com.au/ there has been a huge increase in sales in the android boxes as an alternate option to the high cost of the alternatives especially here in Australia which is not a particularly cheap country for these types of services. Australia is one of the most expensive countries in the world and people are struggling with prices of rent and property prices in the major cities such as Sydney and Melbourne in particular so where there are low cost options like the android box it will always be a popular one.
