A Wine Writers View on the World of Wine. Formerly Magics Wine Guide and Reviews for Newbies
Having helped set up North and South Wines last August with my ex Wine Rack colleague, and owner of N&SW, Marco Napolitano it seems that maybe, just maybe, the cat is out of the bag.
Renowned wine writer and critic, Matthew Jukes, has given us a small expose in his latest press release for Money Week.
Hopefully this will be the first of many.
To echo Matthew’s words in regards to the Giunco. It is a fabulous bottle. We first tasted it in store last October and it was a hit with our customers. I find it a real plus point when you can discover wines that break from the generic perception of a country and style.
To embellish a bit more on our store. We are an out and out wine store with a good range of continental beers and home brewed ales too.
The wine range is a diverse mix of varieties from around the world. We don’t get stuck on everyday ideals that the average customer would think. For example, we have Gewürztraminer not just from the Alsace but Italy, New Zealand, Australia. Our New Zealand white wine bay is a wonderful mix of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Viognier, Gruner Veltliner, Verdelho, Riesling etc. Oh yeah, you may find some Sauvignon in there somewhere too. It was my philosophy to create a range that would give people a broader sense of what wine can do and also to make people realise that there is more to life than Pinot Grigio.
For me wine is to be enjoyed but it also an education. We all experience something different. It’s a lot of fun.
So anybody out and about in the Clapham area, or anywhere in London, for that fact anywhere globally, do feel free to pop in. You’re always welcome. And if you ask nicely I might just crack one of these babies open.
