Your wine gift pack comes with tips for decanting your wine along with a custom Spotify playlist for your listening (and drinking) pleasure:
Pour it Into a Jug
Water pitcher, beer jug (if that's your style), or any other vessel will do. The trick here is that the air can move through the wine as it transfers from the bottle into the new jug. A vigorous pour is ok!
Not just for smoothies! Kitchen blenders can kick a wine into gear for immediate service. Just pour in the wine and hit "frappé" for 3-5 seconds! Works best on young, robust wines. (Better to decant the finer stuff.)
Swish and Swirl
This one requires a bit of forearm stamina. Simply pour your wine into your desired chalice, grab it by the base, and swirl the wine around the bowl of the glass. This lets in the air and brings out the aromas.
Creekside Estate Winery 2012 Iconoclast Red
A classic Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Malbec and Petit Verdot, this wine from Creekside Estate Winery is a powerhouse and a favourite of our expert tasting panel.
Malivoire 2015 Small Lot White
The beauty of a blend is that it can be so much more than the sum of its parts. And this concoction is a uniquely Malivoire kind of wine. It has that sense of playfulness that we love from Malivoire, yet it’s no novelty. You get the supple texture of the Chardonnay and its apple notes, plus the spice of the Pinot Gris and the Viognier, and tropical elements of Gewurtztraminer. It’s super fun and tastes great.
