Language Skills in Some Areas

This is the label of what was a very pleasant Rioja wine for sale on the patio of the Royal Festival Hall - so one assumes the winery knew a good part of their output was being exported to England. They clearly then went out to hire the best translator they could find to make sure the label had a very nice explanation of the qualities of their wine. This was the result.

(Reading the translation, my guess is they got a Spanish-English dictionary for someone's teenage kid and let that soul loose. Why be so stingy - you need get it right only once!)
