Top 10 wines in the UK press

22nd April, 2013 by Andy Young

Matthew Jukes picks out a wine that he says “will vie for white wine of the year come December” and David Williams makes recommendations for starting a wine cellar.

UK Press wine recommendationsWriting in The Observer, David Williams says that you “don’t have to be loaded” to start a cellar.

He added: “Cellaring a few bottles needn’t be the preserve of the grand and loaded. All you need is a dark place where the temperature is consistent – light and fluctuations in temperature are the biggest enemies of ageing wine.

“Provided it’s away from a radiator, a cupboard under the stairs, a space under the bed, even an old fridge in the garage set to a high setting will do just fine to begin with. I keep my few dozen special bottles stacked on a cool stone floor beneath a dresser in my draughty old house. I’ve even got a thermometer down there.”

In the Daily Mail Jukes picked out a white from Australia’s Clare Valley, writing that he is “convinced that 2012 is the finest vintage in Clare in a decade.

  1. The 2012 Blind Spot Riesling is also a favorite of mine. I need to get a few bottles for my cellar so I may enjoy them again in a few years.
