Wine voices – Andrew Watson, Woodlands Wine

“For a wine to be great it has to do something for the mind; it has to refresh the mind. A well-crafted example of a style or a different take on a style; a beautiful, artisanal, pristine, hand crafted wine. To be a great wine you move away from the things that take away from that vineyard, all the things that rob fruit, that rob style and if you’re a really great winemaker you’ll have great fruit and you won’t get in the way.”

“There’s an intellectual exercise, in knowing that a wine is made with a greater degree of difficulty, aiming for something higher. Not just something that’s pleasurable and refreshing, it’s looking to take you to a place. That’s what the great wines do, they take you there.”
