The Wine Gang

November 12th, 2009 | Uncategorized

So, who or what is ‘The Wine Gang’? Well, it’s not a group of hit men who go around threatening people that don’t drink Albariño, although this does give me an idea….. It’s actually just a group of very well known and highly respected UK journalists who have got together to write about wine, organise tastings etc, etc.

The gang of five, comprised of Tim Atkin, Anthony Rose, Joanna Simon, Tom Cannavan and Olly Smith all have very impressive backgrounds, have written books, appeared on TV, and have their own wine columns (independent of one another). To get the full story I highly recommend visiting the Wine Gang website.

In the meantime, one of the ‘gang’, Olly Smith, has reviewed our Castro Martin Albariño, making the following comment and awarding us an impressive 90 points – not bad:

“It’s a peachy style of Albariño that at first seems like it might be a jot too rich in style – but the finish is pristine with a spurt of freshness and mineral hints. A great style to match with food, especially richly textured shellfish such as scallops”.
