Be adventurous in 2017
IF YOU are like most wine buyers you will often scan the shelves at your favourite outlet and then go back to a label you are already familiar with.
Just sometimes you’ll stray from what you already know and that’s usually because of a special price.
With that in mind I’d like to offer you six new labels to add to your favourites as we start 2017.
All the following varieties are available at BWS and Dan Murphy’s.
2014 Chardonnay Here is a Californian white that reflects the richness of a renown wine growing district. RATING: 95/100 RRP: $34
CASILLERO DEL DIABLO
2015 Cabernet Sauvignon A bountiful red from Chile reflecting chocolate and black cherries. Perfect with herby dishes and red meats. RATING: 93/100 RRP: $17
2015 Pinot Grigio Imagine yourself sitting down in a small cafe in Rome and ordering a pasta dish. Here is the wine you'd choose from their local wine list. Fresh and fruit filled. RATING: 93/100 RRP: $13
Prosecco Start off any meal with a glass or two of this lively bubbly from Italy. Soft and fruity. RATING: 93/100 RRP: $16
A light crisp rose from France. Chill down and enjoy with a Sunday afternoon barbecue or put in the picnic basket. RATING: 93/100 RRP: $18
Fine Tawny Port
After the meal sit back and relax with glass of one of Portugal's leading ports. Elegant and mellow. RATING: 95/100 RRP: $26
