This week, new vintages of some of our more popular wines hit the shelves. It's always a 'heart-in-mouth' moment trying a new release. Will it be as good as the previous vintage? Will it be different? Will I like it as much? Am I about to lose an old friend or make a new one? That's a lot of internal dialogue for a weekend morning but, hopefully, we're here to help cut through the confusion. Here are three wines which have recently clicked over and my thoughts on them.
Wines made from the ‘noble’ varietals did us quite nicely for decades. Who could want for more than a shiraz or a chardonnay or a riesling? Well, it turns out, we did want for more.
