Corked or just bad

ANDREW J. LINN

When we use the term 'corked' in reference to a bottle of wine, it does not mean that a bad cork has contaminated the wine. In Spanish the term is more exact, and even though there is no direct translation, the nearest, 'sabe a corcho' (tastes of ... cork) is more accurate. A tainted cork can make a bottle of what may have been a great wine worth little more than fodder.

It is impossible to deny that in this world of fastidious foodies and wine snobs, there are idiots of all types.

Our local wine region

ANDREW J. LINN

We on the Coast are very lucky to have Ronda as our nearest wine-growing area.

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.
