More on greenness

Some helpful comments on the issue of greenness in South African wines by Gary Jordan (pictured right, with wife Cathy) of the eponymous Stellenbosch winery. It's nice of him to spare the time to contribute bearing in mind that this is vintage time in the Western Cape - a time when winemakers are lucky to get any sleep. You can follow the progress of the 2006 harvest at Jordan by clicking here. I get this nagging feeling that it would be helpful for me, as a wine writer, to do a few vintages. Maybe I'd assess wines a bit differently if I really knew what went into making them, and not just in theory.

A small group of us, here on the far south coast of New South Wales, drink far too much of Stellenbosch 'Versus' - the white preferred over the red!

Thanks to the winemakers - keep it coming.
