The Times, yesterday, published Jane MacQuitty's Top 100 Festive Wines; well the cheapo ones those under £5. The top rated duo do not actually fit in this price bracket unless you buy three bottles and get the discount:
  • St Hallett Poacher's Blend Semillon-Sauvignon-Riesling, 2004, Australia.
    £7.49 or three for �4.99 each Threshers.
  • St Hallett Gamekeeper's Reserve Shiraz-Grenache-Touriga, 2004, Australia.
    £7.49 or three for £4.99 each Threshers.
Does that mean that really the rest of the sub-£5 bottles ain't that good? Or did the producer just spend a lot to secure the placement. Ooo, wash my mouth...
