Michael & McGuigan!

The irreverent and inimitable Travelling Gourmet TM shares a glass or two of wine with serial International Winemaker of the Year, Neil…

MCGUIGAN…”Michael, I have little time for so called wine ‘experts’ who tell me that unless I know the top 5 Bordeaux wines…they don’t want to talk to me or taste my wines…” I can only say, “The Travelling Gourmet TM is in FULL agreement!” I too have no time for ‘label drinkers and poseurs! Go to China and drink fake Chateau Lafite 1982 for all I care wahahahaah!” As an International Wine Judge and Wine LOver and Connoisseur, I shall be very, very  content to taste, savour and relish McGuigan’s outstanding wines crafted with love, care and passion! This I did recently at 1855 Wine Shop in Suntec City much to my delight!

I tasted one by one twelve of his wines from the basic entry level to the top of the line. To be brutally frank which is not my usual style, all were good and the top of the line was really, really good.
