'Screwcaps have turned respectable,' declares JANE MACQUITTY. She concedes that 'a fair few winemakers continue to argue that the finest and rarest vintages, destined for many years ageing, should not be bottled under this closure', but this doesn't stop her finding some great examples to 'twist open'. These include the 'zingy and gooseberry-laden' 2005 Blind River Sauvignon Blanc, Malborough (9.99; Oddbins) and the 'fruit-driven' 2002 Morgon Domaine des Souchons from Condemine-Pillet (8.99; Oddbins).
