Anne Krebiehl MW looks at the evolution and revolution of New Zealand wine through twelve wines that are chosen by Nigel Greening from Felton Road and Tim Finn from Neudorf Vineyards – both members of the Family of Twelve. She hears why Greening loathes the term masterclass, what the rules are for joining these twelve elite wineries and why the Maori term Turangawaewae is the most appropriate word for a terroir in New Zealand winemaking.
What is New Wave Champagne? Tim Hall, Champagne aficionado, ambassador, importer and writer tried to tackle this question with a stellar tasting at London’s 67 Pall Mall private members club on Tuesday, June 6. Anne Krebiehl MW had a ‘dream ticket’ to this tasting and picks out her favourites from the tasting, as well as not using the term Grower Champagne (well not within earshot of Tim Hall that is).
The Gimblett Gravels are a story of struggle – not only of the vines who have to work hard and drive their roots deep into the poor, stony soil to find water and nourishment, but also of the farmers who eked out a living on an 800ha stretch of land where the soil was too poor for arable farming, so poor in fact that even sheep grazing was impossible unless you had lots and lots of land for your flock to roam. The Gimblett Gravels are in Hawke’s Bay on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
