“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

You can rest assured that the Second Cheapest Wine will be made from the second cheapest grapes. Or worse. Free Portuguese cork in the top; free Portuguese millipede in every glass .... what's a little protein between friends? Click image for details ... photo Philip White

Have made some wine from Langhorne Creek in the past where millipedes are thick in some vineyards. I'm certain I can pick it up in the wine but it seems to disappear with time.
