Pinot Noir masterclass with Sarah Ahmed
GRINGOTT'S BANK (no goblins though only Aussies) I visited Australia many moons ago on Tim Wildman's inaugural James Busby tour and properly fell for the place. I was there just after a period of extended drought, a bunch of hot vintages that ended while I ...

Corner shop blending masterclass 2.0
Round two, this is where shit starts to get real. By shit I'm obviously referring to Jacob's Creek 'Original' Merlot 2013, and by real I'm referring to it getting into my glass. I've got ahead of myself, the rationale was fucking on point, the reasoning was...

Corner shop blending master class 1.0
We've all been there, Sunday afternoon 4.10pm, lack of preparedness that has meant that you've nothing to drink and Morisson's has just shut.* This leaves one in what I call the corner shop quandary. Obviously the idea of spending a Sunday evening drinking ...

Bulgaria.
The taxi was taking me and the (then) kittens back from the vets while my charmingly (if a trifle unnervingly) loquacious driver was explaining to me the intrinsic fighting qualities of the Thracians. By his reckoning, the Thracians (a sort of pan-Balkan an...

Sleep
Saturday night. It's 9:00 in the evening, I'm sitting in the downstairs office, my hands are shaking and I'm trying to control my breathing because I want to be sick. Going back a few hours. 7:00 am Saturday morning. Waking up it's like wading through badly...

The thrill of the familiar
Some of you who know me may know that the last year or so have been spent throwing myself at the rock face that is Peckham Bazaar. Part of this has been an almost complete immersion in the wines of the Eastern Mediterranean (of which more to come). However ...

Enira or the benefits of cellaring
I'm not the greatest when it comes to placing events correctly in my own personal timeline. I tend to joke that there's been too much wine under the bridge for me to be expected to remember exactly where and when things actually took place. Really, I think ...

Bargain debasement
It's early January and what with being skint and disregarding any sort of stupid dryathalon behaviour one is somewhat on the short side for decent Wednesday evening drinking (I'm justifying all this on the grounds that the en-primeur Burgundy tastings all s...

Macedonia (feel free to insert some sort of pun here)
I've had Macedonian wines on my radar for a while now. They're pretty much the heart of the Balkans (everyone has fought over them, and at least 4 countries regard Macedonia as being part of their ancestral lands - an essential part of being Balkan), and th...

Liminal Zones
The question was, what are the main
differences in style between Slovenian, Austrian and Hungarian expressions of
Furmint? It got me thinking. I’d spent a large part of the day tasting
wines from the Easternmost parts of Slovenia, the North Western European...
