Seven wonders

Its timely and welcome that John Wilson has published “Wilson on Wine” a guide to his top 123 wines for the coming year. Its been a while since a wine guide for the Irish market has been available. It would be great if it were to become an annual edition.

Seven wines from our list are included

From Germany; Emrich Schonleber Nahe Riesling, two of our top sellers Geil Riesling and Geil Pinot Noir and the distinctive Ziereisen Heugumber (which will be back in stock in December).

From Austria; some more expensive choices Schloss Gobelsburg Gruner Veltliner Lamm and Muhr Van der Niepoort Blaufrankisch Carnuntum.

Portugal; in the rounded and fruity category Paco dos Cunhas from the Dao.

These seven wines are listed at numbers 14, 19, 21, 47, 67, 75, 97.

Stockists listed in the book are taken from much longer lists which we provide.
