JONATHAN RAY heads to the Cape and falls in love. The country is beautiful, the welcome effusive and the wines utterly bewitching.' Bruce Jack's Flagstone winery is one of the stop-off points and Ray comments: Innovative, daring and provocative, Jack has long been the enfant terrible of the South African wine industry'. Charles Back of Fairview is next on the list and Ray gets a chance to taste his three labels (Charles Back, Fairview and Spice Route) including the Goats do Roam series, which has been extended to include the Bordeaux-style red: Bored Doe. And in Ray's view, there's not a poor one among them'.
It's Wine Week with The Daily Telegraph and celebrations begin with some food and wine matching advice from Ray. The subject of glassware is also up for discussion and, according to BRYONY GORDON, one of the rules is: the lighter the glass the better the quality'. Burgundy is in the spotlight and readers are given a breakdown of the region, including comments on the grapes and notable vintages.
