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.
Charles Orban Blanc de Blanc
Charles Orban Blanc de Blanc is made from 100% estate grown Chardonnay that has a discrete nose of butter and nuttiness rounded by a palate with hints of brioche. A complex, mouth-filling boutique Champagne perfect as an aperitif or alongside many heartier meals.
Available at Dan Murphy’s, $49.99.
Borgo DanLeo Prosecco
A fresh, grapey nose leads to a palate with lovely fruit flavours. Borgo Sanleo had just a hint of sweetness, making the finish is nicely crisp. Great value Prosecco.
Available at Dan Murphy’s, $15.00
Borgo SanLeo Pinot Grigio
From the home of Pinot Grigio, this is an ideal summer wine. Zesty citrus and fresh pear flavours are complemented by crisp, refreshing acidity. Perfect for prawns or just enjoy a glass on its own.

Ciao Bella Sangiovese
The Ciao Bella Sangionvese epitomises the age old Italian tradition of ‘Bella Figura’ (good image). This wine is rich deep and vibrant and full of gusto, perfect with a pizza or pasta and a classic Fellini.

Marques De Riscal 1860 Tempranillo
Marqués De Riscal Tempranillo displays dark cherry, with violet hues. Beautifully fresh nose of black forest fruit, liquorice and toasted nuances brought on by the oak casks. Good balance between fruit and ok on the palate, medium bodied with lovely soft tannins.
