Steven Roberts (Regional Building Assessments)
Cruising the aisles of Morrisons, Asda and Tesco, I’ve been doing that for years.
Closing my eyes, plucking bottles from shelves, tastings ending in tears.
I curtail my shopping trips and concentrate instead on kegs of beers.
My wife soldiers on wading through tannins and sulphates and adding to my years.
I meet a guy called Glyn, do a job for him.
He says come and meet my Diamonds, see how they shine.
He’s not kidding, there’s a geezer there called Rowland and he knows about wine.
So forget the clubcard points. There’s only one Nectar and its not in a box.
Learn about aeration, and temperature, educate your friends and call Silver Fox.
Or as my wife likes to say “Call that nice Mr Wayward”
Think outside the box, have some bottle, call the Fox.
