You don’t always have to splash out on high-end bottles when winemakers are producing such great-value ‘ready-to-wear’ wines under their second labels.


‘diffusion labels’, in wine they’re known as ‘second labels’, the range somewhere-close-but-not-quite-at-the-top-of-the-line, offering wines of a great pedigree but not always for the same high price. Different tiers originally reflected natural differences in quality. These days, they also depict varying prices, styles and drinking occasions. Second labels are those made by a particular winemaker which, for various and usually honest reasons, aren’t as expensive as their top-tier counterpart. Due to the trickle-down effect,

Runner-up BY A NOSE

During the Bedford production run, which continued until the 1980s, some 551,866 TKs were built, but close on its heels, with more than 520,000 coming off the production line, was the Bedford T J Perhaps even more remarkable was the fact that production of the T J actually outlasted the company which had developed the model, and later versions were still being produced in the 1990s many years after the demise of Bedford itself. The designs and tooling were picked up by AWD and Marshall, and these two companies, which continued to produce the T J for the expert market,

Ricoh GR. More than Meets the Eye.

Since the acquisition of Pentax by Ricoh in 2011, the GR is the very first Ricoh camera to be released. Thrilling aficionados of the venerable series, the new GR (the fifth) now sports a 16.2MP APS-C sensor nine times larger than previous GR editions. In India, the similarly priced Nikon A is vying for exactly the same markets.

The Sigma DP1 Merrill, while falling in the same price bracket, is a very different kind of beast. So is the more expensive Fuji X100S. On the test bench, we discovered that the GR can certainly hold its own.

PMC Twenty 21


We’re big fans of PMC’s Twenty series. So far we’ve reviewed two of the four-strong range and raved about both. Now it’s the turn of the ‘entry-level’ standmounters.

The 21s have the same sloped-back design as the rest of the range. The uneven shape helps to reduce the build-up of internal standing waves, and it makes the speakers stand out on the shop floor.

Take time to get them right

Once given a couple of days to run in, these speakers shine. That wasn’t our initial impression though. Standing a meter or so from the rear wall and playing
