The top 10 wines in the UK press20th May, 2013 by Andy Young
Victoria Moore picks out a wine that she says is “really superb stuff” while Jane MacQuitty recommends a “mouthwateringly racy, minerally, top-drawer Aussie”.
Writing in The Times MacQuitty’s recommendation comes from a vineyard that is now run by the grandsons of Clare founding father Jim Barry. She wrote: “This tiny five-acre vineyard’s 30-year-old riesling vines thrive in its peculiarly Australian limestone, red clay and slate-flecked soil.”
She added that the wine is a great match “with summer’s exotically spiced white meat or fish dishes.”
