5th February, 2013 by Andy Young

Find out which Vinho Verde Matthew Jukes says is in “a different league from the competition” and which Viognier he says “gets the pulse racing”.

UK Press wine recommendationsWriting in the Daily Mail, Jukes picks out five new wines from Tuscany, Clare Valley, Portugal, France & Margaret River. He describes them as “five extremely classy wines, covering every flavour imaginable”.

Jukes is clearly impressed by the Viognier, writing: “your taste buds cannot prevent themselves being hypnotised with the layers of alluring fruit.”

In The Times, Jane MacQuitty is another who recommends a wine from Margaret River. She picks out a Cabernet Sauvignon as a “keeper”, adding: “I loved its lashings of complex, fat, cassis, cigar and eucalyptus flavours and so will you.”

    I agree that Margaret River cab sauvignon is classy and tasty to the palate, but which winery exactly from Margaret River Jane MacQuitty is speaking of?
