Wine of the Year: Viognier

My friend Martin Field is a wine writer and educator par excellence. He writes an email newsletter called Evine, but hasn't got a website.

I have always thought Martin was a meat and three veg man who enjoys a Shiraz, but the December issue of Evine, which I have recently found under a pile of Xmas cards and empty bottles, contains a surprise. He has nominated the 2004 Yalumba Y Series Viognier as his wine of the year. The times are a changin'.

Evine is full of interesting and opinionated stuff about wine, food and philosophy. It is distributed by email. You can get onto Martin's mailing list by emailing a request to him at
There is a sort of voluntary subscription, but it is well worth the money.

Hello, I would like to meet some other local people who are interested in wine, specifically new zealand white wine. I'm using this new zealand white wine site; are there any other around?
