    That was 2D2DHalf-remember after drink with chief (7)[-------] as ever, I can’t 5A5APower lift for recognition (6)[------] it enough! Would appreciate a parse of 3D3DGrand master's wine in pair of Galápagos, perhaps (7)[-------], it’s the only one that eluded me. Thanks!

      Thanks for solving! 3D3DGrand master's wine in pair of Galápagos, perhaps (7)[-------] is certainly the most convoluted -- in fact, probably too outlandish: MA ("master's") + ZIN (or Zinfandel, "wine") in GA ("pair of Galápagos") rearranged ("perhaps")

        Ah, thanks. Wine=ZIN is not familiar to me, but I think I’d managed to piece most of the rest together!

      Nice! Good work integrating the theme, with some deceptive clues in there. Very logical in hindsight but tricky to nail in the first pass. Nice aha when 6a6ASign language's latest characters undersized (6)[------] fell, for example
