Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE - ANDY CRONSHAW

ONE of the grow­ing trends in the wine mar­ket are spe­cial edi­tion ranges and the use of un­usual grape va­ri­eties grown in smaller parcels.

This week I have both: an Aus­tralian wine made as a trib­ute to a wine­mak­ing leg­end and an­other Aussie wine made from a va­ri­ety which is more read­ily found in Italy.

Else­where I have been mak­ing use of the Wine So­ci­ety’s click and col­lect ser­vice which has made its wines col­lectible the fol­low­ing day from a lo­cal re­tail­ers.

It makes or­der­ing from the so­ci­ety’s fab­u­lous se­lec­tion of wines so much eas­ier; without the ‘will I be in then?’ dilemma.

The so­ci­ety is par­tic­u­larly strong in the £5 to £10 bracket and I

rec­om­mend a cou­ple bot­tles just right for summer drink­ing.
