    Musar’s a unique, acquired taste, and so this was a daring choice, I thought, for a mainstream gathering, like piping John Coltrane into a hotel lobby. It was brick red, almost rusty in the glass, like an old port, with the smoky palate of an elderly claret, but a lighter, more downable weight. Absolutely delicious, a good reflection of the Musar style, and something of a bargain given its age. Our full article on Musar and all its offspring is on http://sedimentblog.blogspot.com/2011/01/offspring-of-chateau-musar.html

    Stormhoek Pinotage is ... a nice inky sort of red, velvety without being an actual fabric, not excessively shouty, unlike the packaging See the full review at http://sedimentblog.blogspot.com/2011/01/semiotics-stormhoek-pinotage-2008.html

    The 100% Tempranillo, four-year-old Portia ('A garnet cherry-red wine with intense fruity aromas' as it sportingly announces on the label at the back). is drained to the last drop, amid low murmurings of "This is really very nice" and "Is it all gone?" Since no-one professes to be a winehead, that's about as far as the appreciation gets in purely technical terms, but the trend is clear.

    Oooh - disagreement on this one within the Sediment blog! Following PK's enthsuiasm (below), CJ responds with: "I couldn’t finish the bottle, no matter how hard I tried. It just filled me with woozy, oppressed, overstuffed gloom. It was like thin treacle poured over a flagstone floor. What is it with this terrible stuff?" His full unfortunate experience is on http://sedimentblog.blogspot.com/2010/10/terlato-chapoutier-shirazviognier-2007_28.html

    "The wine itself was absolutely delicious, a description I am thrilled to be able to employ within the Sediment blog. First I gave it an hour in a claret decanter. The nose is cedary but creamy, and the wine has the richness, the spicy warmth of a Cote-Rotie; but with the weight reduced by the absence of oak, and the little lift of the Viognier (a grape I associate with appley white wines), it just sings off the back of the palate. There’s a lighter, fruity note of summer about it, rather than the autumn and winter I associate with Shiraz. If I have any criticism, it’s that the absence of the oak meant I missed having something to tether the wine down, and make it a slower drink – but perhaps that’s my justification (if any were needed) for polishing off the bottle in a single session."

    "What we are actually talking about here is a five quid wine. Not a security-protected, £10.99 bottle, unless you are unfortunate or stupid enough to buy it during the rare periods when it is not reduced. A wine which every year sells for £5, or thereabouts. A little knowledge which, frankly, changed my whole perspective." Read the full review on www.sedimentblog.com

    "I think it’s always important to taste wine before you cook with it. This has nothing to do with the taste of the wine – it just numbs the fear of cooking. So I open up the Hazy View, and pour myself a cook’s glass. And I realise that this is actually a very, very enjoyable chenin blanc – peachy, crisp, utterly drinkable. It’s fragrant, light but flavoursome. What is going on here?" The rest of this review is on the Sediment blog at www.sedimentblog.com

    "This is a thick, fruity wine, as if someone has pushed blackcurrants through a sieve. It has a single, fruit-based note; like a band led by its bass guitar, which drowns out everything else and just leaves you resonating." Read more on http://www.sedimentblog.com read more...
