  • Fascinating interview. Understanding the chemistry behind the typical markers of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc makes mechanical harvesting, for example, a far more interesting topic to explore. I wonder if the "don't drink red wine with fish" proponents of the past were drinking iron-rich reds. Thank you for this podcast. I am ordering the book right now!
