Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2008

The logistics involved in being a wine writer (of sorts) can be quite challenging. Sorting and unpacking bottles, not least the storage of them, coupled with the disposal of packaging and bottles via recycling all takes a fair bit of effort. Last weekend I sorted out about 16 dozen or so wines that I’m just not going to get round to tasting. Unsolicited wines of a Sauvignon Blanc nature, blends thereof and other sorts of white wines that are, I’m guessing, of low interest to subscribers of The Wine Front and obviously not relevant to The Big Red Wine Book are given the flick. Some are wines that Mattinson has already reviewed (reds come into play here) and some have gone out of date – new vintage out now! We couldn’t do what we do without help from the wineries and I’m always grateful for that support..but an email before sending would solve a fair few problems. And I’m working on it. And if I sound like a tool and you’re thinking “poor dear…what a terrible problem to have”…then pop round and help me carry the recycling down “the forty two steps” while it’s raining. Yeah!
