The war is lost

ANDREW J. LINN

It has been a conflict lasting nearly a decade and Goliath has finally beaten David. While in every other market in the world wine is sold in Bag-in-Box format (BIB), in Sherryland it has been banned by a court judgement. WINE OF THE WEEK Lolo ... budget wines because production was small, but prices are now very acceptable, and this little beauty costs around seven euros. This is the first time in the centuries-old history of wine that a panel of judges has been asked to decide how a product can ... maintain the veto on box wine, making it clear that its grounds were to preserve the image of sherry rather than allow it to be sold in a format that would be negative. Put another way, the most hygienic and practical bottling method, with the strongest

Champagne has its moments

ANDREW J. LINN

The figures published for wine consumption during lockdown cannot all be correct. Many of them contradict each other, although there are some reliable facts that can be correlated and double-checked. The drinks industry as a whole always accepts ... the Nielsen data: UK champagne sales had fallen 41 per cent by the third week of lockdown while beer sales jumped 70 per cent. Wine sales across the board are of course down all over Europe, as restaurants were closed and home consumption could not ... fill the gap. Distilled drink sales exploded, probably because it is more convenient to buy and store a few bottles of vodka than the equivalent amount of alcohol in wine, not to mention other effects. So what about champagne? To the chagrin of the

The magic key

ANDREW J. LINN

In most wine-producing cultures, the age of a particular red wine is a key element that usually decides its price. There may be differences of opinion about whether a wine could be or could have been at its best, or even past its best, but these are ... more matters of personal taste than factual markers. And anyway Spain is a paradise for those interested in old wines, and websites like eBay, MilAnuncios, and particularly Vinovintagesantander.com are good for hours of surfing in decent company. WINE ... pinot grigio-type wines that are mere shadows of what a full-bloodied rosado should be. From the famous Protos stable, this Ribera del Duero is not to be ignored. Around 6.50 euros. Most people cannot understand why a bottle that contains a wine so old

No more Parker points

ANDREW J. LINN

There can be few wine aficionados who have managed to enjoy drinking their own selected wines without the interference of the most notorious critic of all time, Robert Parker. wine of the week: Opta In most of the El Corte Inglés main stores ... the wine department has a section with bottles under ten euros, which is worth exploring. This red from Castilla is made from Tempranillo, Garnacha and Syrah grapes, and is barrel-aged for twelve months. You will certainly not regret spending ten euros ... on it. Parker was a small town lawyer when he discovered he happened to have a good nose for wine, and an early trip to France led him to realise something that in the USA was not obvious back then - food was better if accompanied by wine rather

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

Every wine has its glass

ESPERANZA PELÁEZ

“Drinking wine from any old glass is equivalent to listening to music from a transistor rather than from an HD radio,” says Paul Melendo, oenologist and commercial representative for Riedel, the world leader in the production of wine glasses. ... Melendo. Until the middle of the 20th century, wine glasses where designed to be things of beauty: carved crystal, whimsical shapes... But, after the Second World War, Claus J. Riedel, the ninth generation of a family of Czech glass manufacturers, ... realised that the wine did not smell or taste the same served in different glasses. In 1958 he launched the first collection designed to highlight the qualities of different wines. Riedel have hundreds of glasses available but the main requirements for

War of the rosés

ANDREW J. LINN

We don't really consider rosé wine as being the real thing. The initial reaction of most dedicated tinto fans, when they see someone drinking rosado, is that there goes an amateur wine drinker. It is usually considered more of an accessory to wine ... culture rather than an essential feature. At least that is the macho view..... WINE OF THE WEEK Los Aguilares Pinot Noir What other wine could feature here this week other than the world-beater from Ronda? The excellent Pinot Noir from Cortijo ... Los Aguilares bodega has beaten every wine (nearly 2,000 in all) in the PN Challenge in Switzerland. It is a grape best suited to cool climates but winemaker Bibi García has pulled off another sensation. Around 26 euros. It is best not to enter into the

Mostly losers

ANDREW J. LINN

The losers in the coronavirus epidemic are those unfortunate enough not to be politicians, civil servants or the comfortably-off. The wine trade, in all its shapes and sizes, regrettably will come out as a big loser. WINE OF THE WEEK Mirabrás ... This wine from the famous Barbadillo winery in Sanlúcar de Barrameda is not technically a sherry, in spite of being made of the usual Palomino grapes and grown on the white albariza soil of the región. It is a white table wine fermented in old sherry ... barrels, then matured in tanks, all very unusual and, I suspect, something of an experiment. However the only complaint I have about this really delicious wine is the price of 18 euros. Starting at the bottom - or the top, depending how you rate such
