He’s a new Zealander living in Wagga Wagga. So, you see, he does have an excuse. He is also a very pragmatic wine maker who helps us out when it comes to finishing our Chirac fizz. You see, at CSU they have a cave which is well insulated, dark and secure from the attentions of marauding wine science students. We can safely mature our Chirac there until such time as we judge it needs disgorgement and liquoring. This usually takes around four years so it is very handy for us to have someone on staff who knows the drum.
