From the Tasting Bench: Roma’s Grace

I don’t mean to sound belligerent, but I feel compelled to emphasize that I love Champagne and sparkling wines too much to ever consign them to the scrap heap of obligation.

Ingram Road Pinot Grigio reviews

2016 vintage

Campbell Mattinson – The Wine Front

It’s a pleasure to drink. It’s spicy and floral – it most qualifies for the word ‘perfumed’ – with nuts and stonefruit-like characters giving plenty of flavour to hang on to.
