TIM ATKIN MW worries that he might be out of a job soon thanks to Wine-bot, a robo-sommelier', which has been developed in Japan. In the meantime, his wines of the week are all gold medal winners at the 2006 International Wine Challenge, including 2005 Grove Mill Sauvignon Blanc, Malborough (8.99; Oddbins).
The Observer Food Monthly also makes some space for wine but this time it's courtesy of GUY WOODWARD, editor of Decanter magazine. Woodward highlights another big wine competition - the Decanter World Wine Awards - and picks out 50 winners. The under 10 selection includes 2005 Kangarilla Road Viognier, McLaren Vale, South Australia (9.99; Majestic), which was awarded a gold medal.
