Volume 72: Macarthur family correspondence relating to wine, 1846-1900: No. 176
[indecipherable] 10 March 56.
The box with 1 doz. bottles of your wine has arrived safely at [Munich?] and we have tasted them in a company of very good judges. We compared them with the first samples you sent we some years ago and found a great improvement. The wines are of the first quality and only comparable to the best hungarian wines, they have a similar flavour. I think the flavour would be increased by using the grapes in a less ripe state.
If during your sojourn in Europe you intend Germany, I would be very to see you at [Munich?]; we could talk a little more of wine making
I am Dear Sir
Yours very Sincerely
