I’ll definitely be drinking Brazilian fizz and some of the lighter reds from the South

“I’ll definitely be drinking Brazilian fizz and some of the lighter reds from the South”

declares the affable Oz Clarke in his latest Pocket Wine Book 2013. He tells readers about the “fascinating subtropical operation at Vale do Sâo Francisco producing two crops a year of pretty tasty wine” (and currently looking for representation in the UK!) and describes the wines from Rio Grande do Sul: “lowish-alcohol reds from grapes like Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Teroldego can be delightful as can the Moscatos. Sparkling wine, dry or sweet, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, or Moscato, is always good and sometimes outstanding”.
