  • Time to order the bubbles... 13/11/2016

    It's almost Christmas... and you know what that means

    *Champagne ~ Sparkling White ~ Sparkling Red*

    Here are our picks for Christmas 2016

    2016.11.13 Bubbles For Christmas

     

    Arras Elite is Australia's best Sparkling Wine, hands down. Made by the King of Australian Sparkling, Mr Ed Carr from premium Tasmanian grapes. Arras is our favourite Australian bubbles and the perfect party pop. New to Wine Please and Australia in fact, is the gorgeous Arbeaumont Champagne. Just as delicious as it is pretty, this is a classic French Champagne in stunning art deco dress. It's made to celebrate with fun, frivolity and friends this festive season! 

    Bringing a bit of blush to the bubbles party are the Chandon Rose and Majella Sparkling Shiraz. The Chandon is a gorgeous pink and the perfect tipple for any occasion. Serve with canapes or dessert - it's up to you. Our favourite Sparkling Shiraz and the quintessential Australian summertime sparkles has to be this wine from Majella. It's so delicious and made for enjoying on a typically hot aussie Christmas Day... or any other day really! 

    And finally, the classics for those really special occasions. Our Champagne breakfast on Christmas Day is always Moet & Chandon or Pol Roger (or both if we have been really good). These bubbles are both popular with Champagne lovers and everyone has their favourite. Whilst Moet is the world's most recognised Champagne... we secretly fancy Pol just a tiny bit more.

  • Six on the Sixth - Edition #1 22/10/2015

    6 On The 6th

     

    The year is racing away and believe it or not, crazy season is about to begin! So we've decided to keep it super simple and tell you about our "Six on the Sixth" to make your wine shopping easy. Now I know it is not the sixth today... Mrs WP has had a busy few weeks travelling interstate and tasting all of these gorgeous wines and didn'tm anage to update the blog on time! 

    These are six premium wines, all absolutely delicious and selected by us, at $50 below RRP

    Arras 

    Firstly, the stunning Tasmanian bubbles from House of Arras. This has quickly become on of our favourite sparklings and has a cult following in the industry. Made by Ed Carr who is a lovely guy and a genius winemaker. We think Arras is on a par with the top Champagne houses in France, delivering a delicious fine sparkle which is perfect for all occasions. If you need any reassurance, just look at the smiles on your guests faces as they take their first sip. 

    Vasse Felix Chardonnay

    Vasse Felix is a beautiful winery and has a simply amazing restaurant, above the cellar door and overlooking the vines. Their Heytesbury Chardonnay is the flagship, however this is absolutely divine and brilliant value for money given its pedigree. Pop on your over-sized sunnies, order a bottle of Chardy and a little something from the restaurant and let it be known that you are having a marvellous time down South darlings. 

    Pierro LTC Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

    Pierro is one of our favourite wineries in Margaret River and in fact the world. The cellar door is gorgeous and quaint and the wine is delicious. The Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blend is classic Margaret River and Pierro’s LTC is definitely at the upper end of the scale in terms of fabulousness. Make sure this has a few minutes out of the fridge before serving to really blossom. And serve it with a fancy seafood dish for maximum effect. Love.

    Riposte The Sabre Pinot Noir

    Only 'The Best Pinot Noir in Australia' right here ladies and gentlemen. Delicious, winning awards all over the place and with a cool name like 'The Sabre' - this wine has the trifecta. And we love that it is made by a small family team in the Adelaide Hills determined to produce fine wines with an authentic brand. 

    Catena Malbec

    Winner of the inaugural Wine Please steak night and Malbec taste-off. The Catena has undergone rigorous tasting by the team and we have fallen deeply in love. If you love Malbec skip straight to the food recommendation.  In fact, your steak is probably already on the BBQ. If you’re not a fan of Malbec then don’t expect a Barossa Shiraz, be open to the more understated and savoury flavours… and you’ll have a new BBQ companion.

    Bethany Shiraz

    We’ve had the pleasure of enjoying Bethany Shiraz for many years, with a few bottles being tucked away in Dad’s cellar. More recently we’ve been to visit their cellar door and seriously enjoyed the wines on offer. Classic Barossa Shiraz which is perfect by the fire in winter, shared at a BBQ or given as a gift to lovers of this iconic wine region.
