“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.”

Don Oliver's Taranga McLaren Vale Shiraz 2012 gets a pumpover in the Penfolds Grange cellar at Magill ... photo by Milton Wordley from our book A year in the life of Grange, which has won numerous international awards, including the Gourmand award for world's best wine book photography in Beijing.

To ensure delivery before the big day, you must order your copy by Friday 19th December, when this offer closes.

While I'm not a pinch of his photographic mastery, here's a photograph I made of Milton at his back door. Milton lives in what is, officially, the smallest house in Adelaide. Him and Anne-Marie built a new bit on the back. Like George Grainger Aldridge, Milton Wordley is a valued friend and great contributor to DRINKSTER ... Raise a glass!
