  • On Saturday afternoon, Zufrieden and I went to a fellow wine aficionado's place for a cabernet sauvignon (at least 80%) blind tasting. Zuf decanted and brought a 2014 Boekenhoutskloof "Stellenbosch" (92% cs, 8% cab franc).I decanted and brought a 2012 Quilceda Creek "CVR" (83% cs, 11% merlot, 4% cf, 1% pv, 1% malbec)  and I brought a 2008 Stormy...

  • One of the few real bargains left in France are found in the southern Rhone and Bouche du Rhône and fall under the appellation Cotes du Rhône and Cotes du Rhône-Villages.  These wines are delicious whether red or white, and are still affordable at good price to quality ratios.  Their copies in Australia, South Africa, Australia and North America...

  • Vertobe, welcome.South Africa has a lot of quite decent sauvignon blanc and chenin blanc, and I tend to go for them before wines made from similar grapes in New Zealand. Great QPR for such whites from several producers. You should try other labels, as well, as you can find them. Look forward to hearing more about your South African (or other) wi... Read More

  • A chef recently challenged me to match a wine with Bakewell Tarts, one of England’s favourite cakes. These delicious sweeties have a jam-coated shortcake case filled with sponge, topped with by almond flakes and icing. I luv ‘em. What’s more, Bakewell is a village in Derbyshire not far from my home city of Manchester so, as you can guess, I was ... Read More

  • I recently appeared on BBC World’s Connecting Commerce, a series highlighting companies around the world that are successfully trading beyond their home market. “We’d like you to comment on Canadian wines John”, was the initial request from the BBC producer.

  • I tasted through a selection of Chenin Blanc for #CheninBlancDay last June. Right off the bat I knew we had to bring these wines to the Snooth audience.  I was hoping to do it in the winter months for one very good reason: South African Chenin Blanc retains startlingly robust fruits (more than enough to stand up to warming winter dishes), while ...

  • Zinfandel for some reason reminds me of porta-potty deodorizer. I think if I never smelled a porta-potty I would like it though! I can always taste Zinfandel in blended Italian table wines and it turns me off, although there are a few brands I like that do have a little Zinf but mainly Merlot.It has a rose or flower scent and taste to it that ju...

  • In case you haven’t heard, June 17th is Chenin Blanc Day. And like so many wine lovers, one of the first places I go for great Chenin Blanc is South Africa. While South Africa is considered part of the New World, at this point, the country’s vines are quite venerable. The first vintage of South African wine was recorded in 1659. Meanwhile, the f...
