Cornish champagne


I was unimpressed by sparkling Shiraz in Australia. They told me that it was ideal accompaniment to Christmas turkey but to my palate it tasted like fizzy Ribena. Has anybody tried Cornish champagne from Camel Valley? One of their white wines won a gold medal at this year's International Wine Challenge. I tried to buy some in Waitrose but they said it's only stocked in the Cornish shops.

Yes, it is vastly overpriced and far too fizzy. Too much is made of it, I think. The wine is too rough to my liking "mais les goƻts et les couleurs ne se discutent pas".
Bacchus Dry sounds better than some US wines with labels like: Arrogant Frog or Fat Bastard.
Fred Franzia, a wine grower in the US, has just celebrated the sale of his four-hundred-millionth bottle of Charles Shaw, a wine that costs 1.99 US dollars and is known by the chummy nickname of Two Buck Chuck.
