OCH-I-THE-NO to Scottish Wine
Scottish vineyard owner Christopher Trotter of vineyard Chateau Largo admitted that his vintage tasted horrible as they had failed to chill the grapes soon enough allowing oxidation to occur. He is not disheartened though he is convinced that his 200 vines planted near Upper Largo could soon be the next Loire Valley due to climate change effects in Scotland. And he has proved that they can grow grapes in the Scottish climate. One critic that had tasted the first vintage said it's not yet drinkable but that he had enjoyed it in a bizarre masochistic way. The critics tasting notes do little to prompt sampling... undrinkable sherry-like concoction with nutty notes that might complement a very strong cheese. Mr Trotter said his ultimate aim was to produce a good-quality table wine.
