Albariño and a pot of tea

It would appear that the Yorkshire Post newspaper quite likes our wine:

"Rather restrained and elegant is the white Castro Martin (Val do Salnes) Albariño 2007 from Riás Baixas which has the soft, subtle weight of this delicate, peach-tinged grape variety. It is unoaked, but has weight across the palate and it makes a glorious food-friendly wine".

My own connection with Yorkshire is actually much closer than simply being English - not only does my mother still live there, but I am probably the world's best customer of Yorkshire tea! Every year I ship about 2,000 tea bags from Harrogate (home of the world famous Betty's tea shop) to see me through the year.

Sorry, have to stop, time to put the kettle on......
