This month has been a mammoth wine buying time (for me anyway). Twelve bottles from Majestic, a case from Berry Bros & Rudd and on the advice of the American (my wife) I ordered a mixed case of Washington (State) Wines from Noel Young Wines (http://www.nywines.co.uk/
). Out of three orders we wait with barely contained anticipation for the last case - these are newly arrived in the UK this week.
