Some people live for the colder months. They suffer through Summer, waiting for the cool relief of Autumn and come alive when the last orange leaf is replaced with a snowflake. Others shiver through winter, looking ahead to sunny days, shorts, singlets and ice-cream.
Snow-bunnies and bikini-babes alike, we're all in it together and there's no denying wine by an open fire is a delicious way to spend a chilly evening! Mulled-wine, big reds, world-revered Muscats and full-bodied Chardonnays are all on the menu and easily paired with your favourite Winter dish. Think subtly oaked Chardonnays with creamy mushroom and black truffle gnocchi, a dark-berry flavoured Shiraz with slow cooked lamb, or a rare Rutherglen Muscat with sticky date pudding… the mouth waters!
Be sure to take the opportunity to explore these striking High Country wines this Winter.
