Murray Almond's "From the Left Island"
The Stelvin Dent Test
Both items were expendable as the wine was nicely chilled, just right for a hot day, and the cheese knife was a gift from my wife's mother.
2. The wine has a pale straw colour, lively lemon/lime nose, balanced acidity and a great long aftertaste. The fruit carries nicely with sufficient acid for enjoyable drinking now, chilled on a very hot day, or happily cellar for up to a decade.
3. Striking a Stelvin Cap with the handle of a cheese knife one has been given by one''s mother in law has no impact on the structure of the cheese knife, however emotionally satisfying the experience may be.
2. The Tests do prove that in 100% of trials conducted by this laboratory that the Stelvin Cap can be subjected to dents without breaking the seal. As such to those Stelvin Haters my conclusion is that I hold my sides and laugh, "Ha Ha Ha", that such theories may be put forward.
3. The 2000 Leasingham Bin 7 Riesling is great value at AUD$12 for short term drinking or long term cellaring. New Zealanders can substitute the similar tasting 2000 Richmond Grove Barossa Riesling (about $14.95) to conduct their own tests.
