Nero d'Avola vs Malbec...

That deliberately cryptic title is just meant to provoke an emotional response rather than an academic one, and gives you an idea of what some of us have been up to today at the London wine trade fair. Spent a couple of fun hours on the Sicilian stand tasting various whites - the Grillo variety in particular pulled my chain e.g. from Casa di Grazia - followed by a run of tasty reds from star Sicilian grape Nero d'Avola e.g. Brugnano. Then on to Argentina for a stint of tasting Malbecs and Cabernets from half a dozen wineries: a couple of favs, off the top of my head, were probably Pannunzio and Septima. Full report on both of these to follow, along with wines from Portugal and Slovenia...
