Heirloom Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

“Wine comes in at the mouthAnd love comes in at the eye;That’s all we shall know for truthBefore we grow old and die.I lift the glass to my mouth,I look at you, and I sigh.” – WB Yeates 1910 This is the poem that adorns the back label of the Heirloom Vineyards wine bottles. And inside you…

Champagne Taittinger Prestige Rose

Seriously this here makes me so happy. Cheese and wine – can you really go wrong? Rosé Champagne is incredibly food friendly and my favourite match would have to be cheese and charcuterie. We picked up this Champagne Taittinger Prestige Rosé NV for $80 and I would most definitely buy it again. It’s absolutely delicious. The beautiful…

Robert Stein 2020 White Label Riesling

You won’t find many 2020 Mudgee wines on shelves. Unfortunately if you’re not aware, there were terrible bushfires around Australia over the 2019-20 summer. In fact many winemakers did not produce any wine at all and it was most probably one of, if not the most, challenging vintages in the region’s wine growing history. Robert…
