Christmas is a time of cheer, and cheers! This week we look at three wines perfect to help you celebrate the holidays. The first is a moscato that’s a perfect starter if your Christmas day is going to be warm rather than snowy. The next is a big shiraz that would go perfect with those having a big roast on Christmas day. And our final wine is a Hunter Valley semillon that wont break the bank if you need to buy more than one or two bottles to make sure the extended family stay happy. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from WineWeek!
This week we look at three wines that are good enough to be much better than you might expect. The first is a seriously inexpensive cabernet which is much better than the price tag. The next is a rosé which is different in that it is much drier than your average sweet offering. Our final recommendation is a nebbiolo which stood out at a tasting against much more pricey bottles.
In this, our 50th episode, we look back at our favourite dozen wines from the past year, and you could win one of two complete sets of the Best Dozen of ’07!
As always our criteria was to pick our favourite bottles based both on the quality of the wine and value for money. It would have been simple to pick the 12 most expensive wines but we think that there are some absolutely brilliant bargains out there. If a wine is a brilliant drop and is awesome value for money it ranks pretty high with us.
