Lovely article Alice. Your perceptions of Australian wine lean towards the prehistoric, but I always enjoy reading you.

We might be a bit troglodytic in this neck of the woods, but we do have the Voice of the People Spring 2010 23 Ltr demijohn sitting on the bar (our 4th arriving this week). Good to see we are at least in tune with you folks in NYC! Settlers Tav Margaret River...although its only $6 glass here...

oh! and by the way - its seriously delicious! Fresh and juicy...


How do people respond to the wine?

Nice write up Alice...I had a look through Tom's wines last weekend in the Barossa and again last night with the lads from the Natural Selection Theory...they are doing some interesting stuff.

I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
