Back from Adelaide

Jacaranda petals; Adelaide November 2017

I have just spent a rather intensive six days studying wine in Adelaide.  This is the beginning of the Master of Wine journey, and the path ahead is now lit, together with its enormity of scope and impressive difficulty.  The sensible person might ask at this point whether this is an example of commitment being required or in fact eligibility for commitment.  Naturally, I believe the former.  For reasons of comity with courses taking place in other parts of the world, I am unable to share many of the wines tasted.  Nonetheless, interesting wines abounded, and I can assure you the range of wines reviewed in the months ahead will be diverse and global, and reviews as rigorous as ever.
