We have now started to taste summer wines, and Sylvia brought along four delicious South African whites. My favourite was an unusual Gruner Veltliner (Majestic – £10) from Durban. This wine is commonly grown in Austria and this is the first version which we have tasted that was not grown there. Pat is bringing a selection of Australian whites to our next meeting on 25th May. Our food and wine evening on 22nd June will have a mid summer theme: I will consult Mary Berry and draw up a list of cold supper dishes for members to prepare! Michael Switzer.
