Rod Properjohn, who writes the tasting notes for the magazine says, “….The tastings we had were stimulating with the usual suspects popping up and some new wines absolutely shining.

While we still have warm weather, we advise you to keep chilling your red wines, 14-17 degrees is the ideal temperature range and the enjoyment factor will be increased dramatically. Be quick to buy the wines listed, they won’t last at the prices. Cheers.”
