Pieropan Soave 2008

The 2008 vintage from Pieropan is just in today. It is bottled under screwcap, according to the wisdom of Italian wine laws they can't call it Soave Classico, so it is labelled simply as a Soave. The Italian authorities really need to get their act together so that they can keep up with forward thinking producers in their region and with the wine world in general. We have it on tasting in the shop this weekend if you would like to see how it tastes.

Also on tasting is the Herdade dos Grous ref wine from Alentejo in Portugal. Haven't tried this in a while but it is from superstar winemaker Luis Duarte's estate and is pretty good stuff. Come in for a taste!
