So, on Wednesday evening I had one of the best pizzas I have ever experienced. I met up with buddy and fellow Beer Anorak Daniel Primack for a spot of dinner at Pizza Pilgrims. We each bought a bottle, both white it turns out, and they were both fantastic. It was such a nice evening.

Radikon Slatnik di Oslavia 1993 Vino di Tavola, Italy
What right does this wine have to be so fresh? Full yellow colour. Very delicate and fine with hints of vanilla, white plums, cooked lemons and marzipan, with bready notes and a hint of hazelnut. Nice fresh grapefruit notes, too. real finesse and purity, and after a while in the glass you get some lovely apricot character. 94/100

Shobrook Wines Giallo 2013 Adelaide Hills, Australia
11.5% alcohol. I’ve really enjoyed this wine in the past, and the new vintage doesn’t disappoint. It’s beautifully aromatic with tangerine, apricot and passion fruit. Lovely freshness and detail with bright fruit, good acid and some pink grapefruit characters. Such a brilliant wine. It’s a skin contact Sauvignon, if you must know. 95/100 (UK agent Les Caves de Pyrene)
