Why do we love this wine?

Ever since reading James Suckling’s description of this wine (“Full and vivid. Exciting New World wine with an Old World sensibility.”), I can’t get Sense and Sensibility out of my head. And I’m not sure it’s coincidence that the first print run of 750 copies sold out in no time, and there are 750ml in a bottle of this. It’s also the bicentenary of Jane Austen’s passing, and this was surely created to celebrate great stories and the way old and new worlds collide. I feel like Te Mata would approve of these very forced and tenuous analogies, even they call Elston their estate’s leading lady - “chardonnay royalty”.

I mean, correlation equals cause, or something like that. Alright, go home Chris, you’re drunk. 

Fair enough.

PS: When we opened this at Mofo HQ everyone’s eyes lit up... or should we say mouths. Absolutely delicious!
