As I'm almost a teetotaler I really can't comment about the merits of wine; as far as I'm concerned it's all plonk! I was offered some "champas", as we Aussies call it, at my mate's 82nd birthday last Saturday, but declined.

Truth be told, I'm not much of a wine drinker myself, with months, perhaps years, elapsing between glasses. I doubt that I could tell real champagne from another kind of sparkling wine myself without seeing the bottle it came from.
