Punt Road Chemin Chardonnay 2013 at Somm Bar
The sun warms her back through a veil of late September air. It spreads through woolen fibers of the cardigan he’s loaned her this morning, and beams straight through her own last layers of silk and lace. It is early enough that you can watch the light creep up the sides of buildings and spill into empty streets. Early enough to distinguish single sets of footsteps. The first coffees are brewing on every corner and the fruit sits condensing on the counters. She selects two ripe bananas and calls him to see if he takes sugar in his coffee. They’ve only just met but this is something she cannot wait to know by heart.
