How to Prove You’re a Sophisticated Wine Drinker19 July 2016
Line up ten glasses of cask wine
and let a priest bless just a few.
Then let an alcho (me) blind taste-test
the sanctity of each glass –
nuanced hints of holiness, full-bodied
spirits swirling in the plonk.
It would be blasphemous
to spit, so swallow instead,
by the tenth glass you’ll find God.
