Sicily: The Island Nation

There was a time when I believed wine lovers were ready to give up on the idea that Sicily might ever shrug off its reputation for large cooperatives, bulk production and false starts to fine-wine glory. Luckily, that day never came. Quite simply, the wines of Sicily have never been better than they are right now. The combination of drastically diverse terroirs, a huge uptick in quality and a vast number of varieties has created an embarrassment of riches for the discerning wine lover.

High Timber, London, UK

It was a pleasure to get back out again and revisit one of central London’s dining secrets. Anyone with an interest in South African wine should make a beeline for High Timber, which should reopen fully from May 17.

2017 Grifalco Aglianico del Vulture Gricos ($18.00) 90

2017 Grifalco Aglianico del Vulture Gricos, 90 points

The 2017 Gricos is a fresh-styled Aglianico del Vulture. Dusty dried florals, black cherries and crushed stone minerality lift from the glass. It’s silky-smooth yet spry, mixing sweet tannin with nervous acidity, creating mouthwatering tension, as hints of tobacco and licorice linger. (EG)

1896 taylors port

1896 Taylor’s Single Harvest Port

Several years ago, Taylor’s Fladgate had what might be described as a eureka moment. Instead of using precious, ancient and irreplaceable pipes of Port into their 40-Year Old Blend for example, why not see if there is a niche market for limited launches of historical fortified wines?
