“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.”

That's not the Barossa. Is it. No. Peace in the Valley.

Will there be tastings at this tasting or is it a random No Tastings Vale Cru tasting like @ the Piazza tasting non-tasting? Because I'd like to taste.

Ah stuff it I'll just go to The Ed.
