Woman asks for Shiraz because she likes the name

A WOMAN has ordered a glass of Shiraz as she prefers its name to other wines.

Helen Archer drank two glasses of the full-bodied red because she knew Chardonnay was a white and could not remember any others apart from Burgundy which could be expensive.

She said: “It’s just a lovely name isn’t it, Shiraz.

“I prefer red because after two you don’t want any more, but I mainly seem to know whites. Riesling, Pinot Grigio, that something Blanc one.

“And as all wines basically taste the same, you might has well have the one with the fanciest name. It’s even got a Z in it. Better value.”

She added: “Shit, I should’ve had Rioja. That’s not said how you spell it, so everyone would assume I speak Spanish.”
