Excellent gauge. at just shy of 1 troy oz this label has a very satisfying weight to it. 

Our oenophile in residence advises us that Bucellas as it is known nowadays is similar to Hock and is grown in the hills to the north of Lisbon. We are now seeking a bottle of this apparently dry white.

The wine had been consumed in England since the 16th century but escalated in popularity in the 18th and early 19th century when wine price of wine increased with taxation and ultimately a ban on the importation of French wines and spirits when ‘Boney became increasingly belligerent.

If they did turn off the electricity supply to Jersey Im sure we could manage on the superb international award-winning English wines now being produced in Kent and Sussex ably supported by the English speaking New World.
