Every single wine book claims to de-mystify wine, be for ‘the common man’ or makes laughable claims about the incredible ubiquity and cheapness of fine wine. I have no interest in spouting such drivel. I am very much of the opinion that nice things are nicer than nasty things and as such I want to focus on the best wines, with only the occasional dig at filth. I am sure, dear reader, you are enlightened enough to realise that best does not equate with most expensive, I am not a snob interested in burning money. I am interested in drinking damned-good wines. So if you prefer your wine columnists to pander to your erroneous opinions that Jacob’s Creek is a fine wine then I suggest you head with alacrity away from here.
