le wine blog™ - New World to Old World: Bite me

Here's an interesting article courtesy of the Sydney Morning Herald - it's got some of the most incredibly OTT wine-snob speak I've heard in years. I especially liked the gratuitous reference to Derrida.

For the record: Old World, y'all can kiss my indie-punk zinfandel drinking ass. Just because terroir is a French word doesn't mean it doesn't exist outside of France. The best wines everywhere are very much of a certain place; Clonakilla tastes like Murrumbateman every bit as much as Ch. Petrus tastes of Pomerol.
