April 2010 Meeting - Miscellaneous World Wines

 The meeting on Tuesday 20 April was led by Peter Moore, who gave a splendid presentation on a range of white and red wines including...

a Forest Riesling (not wildly popular) followed by a range of Sauvignon Blancs including a Dourthe No 1 which was much enjoyed

Similarly the Luis Felipe Edwards and finally a restricted taste (due to expense) of Cloudy Bay 2009 – the latter while enjoyed was thought to be expensive compared to the previous Edwards (£5 from Asda)! We then went on to taste a range of Valpolicelli including an Allegrini, and an Asda Valpolicella Ripass (again fairly cheap and much enjoyed). We rounded off with a Classico – expensive and heady!
