Last quote by Adam Lechmere

We just do not have the climate to ripen red grapes. With champagne and sparkling wine, acidity is of the essence, that's what gives the wine its backbone, its longevity, power and grip – you don't need the fruit flavours so much. But to make a red wine without fruit flavours, it comes out as metallic and dull and it doesn't have the verve. You just can't do it without the sunshine hours. We have the right climate to ripen a grape to wonderful acidity, but don't have enough sun to develop the sugars to develop the fruit.feedback
