A New Wine – Especially for Senior Citizens

On behalf of Woodborough Web readers, we’ve been sampling a brand new wine from ‘down-under’ – just one of the onerous tasks that an editor is expected to carry out!

As the years pass by, mature wine lovers find that drinking wine in the evening can have the disadvantage of having to get up in the night to visit the loo!

Clare Valley vintners in South Australia, who already produce a rang of wines for the major retailers, have now developed a brand new hybrid grape that acts as an anti-diuretic.

Primarily aimed at silver surfers who like to sample the grape, it is expected to reduce the number of trips older people have to make to the bathroom during the night – and our research seems to indicate that they’ve made a breakthrough for the older generation.

Be sure to look out for it at Sainsburys and Waitrose, next to Clare Valley’s Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio wines, under the brand name “Pinot Moor” (available from April 1st).
