A brilliant article sending up the current fashion of wine writers who manage to find aromas and tastes that simply do not exist.

"One of the last gargled, lip-smacked, parking her nose in a glass of her hostís finest recent vintage. Coming up for breath she gasped: ďRaspberries... myrtles... heather... honeysuckle... Iím getting melons, with marram grass!" She turned eagerly to the great viticulturalist. He replied with the most charmingly imperious disdain: "Personally, I prefer my wine to taste of grapes."
