Wines you need on hand this Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, your mind goes to one of three places: sex, food and wine. Most important being the latter.

If you know what’s good for you, invest in something quality drops to impress the squeeze and enjoy the day into the night.

Champagne Duperrey Vintage Brut 2011

Champagne Duperrey Vintage Brut speaks to the terroir magnificently. On the nose this beautiful sparkling is delicate with vibrant citrus notes with a subtle touch of brioche and almond. Delicate notes of dried fruits can also be detected. Once on the palate, this Champagne truly sings with deep, robust, yet refined flavours of wild peach, pear and citrus. A Champagne that is full of charm and character.

Available at Dan Murphy’s, $70.
