Sir: Regarding ‘Tesco unveils word cloud wine descriptions,’ (thegrocer.co.uk, 1 September). I’ve been tweeting and asking Facebook questions for new ways to describe wine. ‘Kiwi, mango and goji berry with a hint of rose petal and old tennis shoes’ doesn’t work any more. Thurber’s descriptions “amused with their presumption,” but fantastic to have a new way.
