The Palate 2013 Case

Here’s how we picked this case: we held a nationwide competition called The Palate 2013 to find the UK’s finest amateur wine taster (and to demonstrate to wine drinkers everywhere that you don’t need a PhD in pontificating about Vitis Vinifera to be good at wine tasting); asked the 12 finalists to tell us their favourite wines from our range; and put it on t’internet. From the daintily aromatic Janeil Gros Manseng to the “rich, hearty, jammy and souly” Manz Platónico, which was hand-picked for our shelves by The Palate champion, Chloe Dickson, these are their choices. We like their style.
