'Contains sulphites'

ANDREW J. LINN

Wine appears to be exempt from declaring its ingredients on the label. All other foodstuffs have to list in minute detail what they contain, but not wine. However there is a phrase that is almost never missing from the back label: 'This wine ... contains sulphites'. WINE OF THE WEEK Gramona Gessamí 2017 A delicious white wine from Catalonia's Penedés region, this superb blend of Muscat, Gewürtztraminer and Sauvignan Blanc is a gift from Bacchus for the growing number of lovers of dry wine ... made from 'sweet' grapes. Produced organically by Gramona winery, the price alone is a good enough reason for trying this delectable little gem. Around 11€. The rationale is not immediately obvious as sulphites occur naturally in wine and cannot exist

Future wine

ANDREW J. LINN

Back in 2002 a US supermarket chain launched a wine known as Two Buck Chuck. The price ($2) was unprecedented, and 800 million bottles were sold. Customers never knew where the wine came from, only that it was made from grapes. WINE OF THE WEEK ... Viña Ardanza Reserva 2009 Possibly one of the best-known 'quality' Riojas, this wine has been around for 75 years, and is from the La Rioja Alta bodega. Unusually for a Rioja it has a high proportion of Garnacha grapes and it is aged in oak for three ... years. Wine Spectator rated its 2005 vintage as one of the world's 100 best wines. Around 20€. At a recent conference the theme was how wine will be made and sold in two or three decades. Primarily of course it is climate change that will be the biggest

Worth complaining

ANDREW J. LINN

How many times have we sent back a dish in a restaurant, or had the urge to do so but lacked the courage? Or, cowardly in the extreme, how often have we replied that everything was fine when asked by the waiter - even though it was not? WINE OF ... the table, as opposed to the aperitif class. This wine, sold by Alcampo, is very unusual and indeed quite a challenge, but delicious and a sea-change from the whites we are more accustomed to. Around 14 euros. We should never hesitate. Talking to the ... not up to standard." Most restaurants are prepared to do almost anything to assure customer satisfaction. Replacing a dish costs little and even giving a free bottle of wine is not a financial burden. "But it is really upsetting when someone

A whiter shade of wine

ANDREW J. LINN

...nomenclature could no longer be used to describe winegrowing areas. WINE OF THE WEEK Martín Códax Albariño This bodega (founded in 1986) is the region's largest co-operative, and it keeps tabs on its members around the year. There is a wide range of ... soft-shelled crab to razor fish and always shipped from Galicia - not for the faint-hearted either financially or gastronomically. A little-known fact about these Albariños is that they do not have to be drunk young. Indeed a 4 or 5 year old wine is often more

The great wine wall of China

ANDREW J. LINN

...it comes to wine, what do they know? Since the word does not even feature in the Chinese vocabulary (they use the word for 'red'), we may think they start at a disadvantage. Surely there can be no wine culture if the stuff is unheard of. International ... experts (well, mainly French ones to be honest) have been telling us for years that it will only be a matter of time before the Chinese develop a taste for wine and became Europeanised in their drinking habits. Things certainly were going that way and last ... year Spain was number five on the country import list. A total of 200 foreign winemakers fight for a crumb of the Chinese tart, and not surprisingly all wine producers in the market dream of becoming brand leaders. WINE OF THE WEEK Trajinero Oleroso

Adios to another wine dynasty

ANDREW J. LINN

WINE OF THE WEEK Blanc Pescador A real favourite of the value-for-money brigade, this Catalan white wine is known as vino de aguja, literally 'needle wine' in reference to its slightly-sparkling nature. Made first in the 1960s, it is an unerring ... he deal, there were Chinese waiting in the wings. Not a happy ending, but one that is becoming frequent in the wine business.

Meeting of masters

ANDREW J. LINN

Britain's Masters of Wine Institute is the most respected and influential body of its kind in the world, and although not all of its 369 members are in the trade, the ones that are can exert an influence that is possibly disproportionate. WINE OF ... THE WEEK Toc de Solergibert 2016 If you have not yet tried a wine from the Pla de Bages región in northeast Spain, don't leave it any longer. This tiny corner of Catalonia produces mostly red wines aged in wood. All bodegas have their own ... demonstrated that the soil of Kent is identical to that of the Champagne region, and the LMVH Group put up a red wine grown on the slopes of the Himalayas. Overall a very worthwhile get-together.

Heavy wine

A. J. LINN

In the festive season wine consumption increases, not meaning that we regular drinkers consume more (ahem!), rather that people who would normally pass on it enjoy a glass or three. We do not realise how lucky we are. Wine has been produced for the ... last 6,000 years, but it is only in 3% of that entire period that we have been able to drink it as a refined pleasure. For the previous 97% of those six millennia, wine was drunk not for pleasure, but because water was polluted. Wine, and beer in some ... countries, was the only liquid refreshment, sweet wine being the preferred tipple as it kept longer. Quantities of Bavarian steinwein still exist from 1540, the driest year on record when the Rhine ran dry, and wine was used for building due to lack of water.
