The December issue of Decanter landed on our doorstep this morning, and we were delighted to see some really high praise for lots of wines in the L&S portfolio. The ‘Weekday Wines’ section is put together each month by Tastings Director Christelle Guibert. It features 25 wines for less than £20, all of them a little different or adventurous in their own way.
Global warming is likely to have both positive and negative effects on wine production throughout the world. Southern England is becoming the new Champagne, while many areas where wine has been produced for centuries are becoming unsuitable for vinis vinefera. Much has been written about the changing climate and its effect.
Featured by Jane MacQuitty in the Times today, this amphorae-fermented Riesling from one of our favourite Austrian producers is a fascinating and atypical Riesling; a wine with great purity and a sort of ‘natural’ feeling softness and clarity of expression.
