In fact, I’m pretty sure I hogged the bottle, but there’s no truth to the rumor that I sat in a corner just swigging away. Really.
Wine Enthusiast and Wine Spectator are arguably the burly boys of the wine magazine world. They and their tasters can make or break the reputation of a winery (deserved or not…but that’s a debate that will never be resolved) by the flick of a pen.
What’s interesting – at least to my eyes and is the complete antithesis of American White Zin producers – they are using a green bottle and though I’ve only been able to look at it in pictures, the wine actually looks, well, *white*!
While gophers, squirrels, deer, and rabbits are the vermin that American grape growers have to deal with – they’ve never had to deal with baboons!
