  1. Pumpkin Pork Risotto

    Pumpkin Pork Risotto

    If you are a fan of Rhone grapes/wines then I have just the one for you. Coming in at AUS $30, $27 if you are smart enough to head to winedirect.com.au! The Schwarz GSM is UBER drinkable.  2017 wasn't the best vintage in Barossa but what the guys have done at the Schwarz company is a wine that you would think came from one of the better vintages! You get notes of soft red fruit, violet, mulberries, and licorice too alongside juicy tannins, perfectly balanced acidity, and a touch of oak. With ratings of 94 points from both Huon Hooke & Nick Butler, it's defo a great drop.

  2. Grilled Lamb, Hummus and Carrots

    Grilled Lamb, Hummus and Carrots

    I'm gonna ruffle a few feathers here with this one and go MERLOT!!! Mer-what? I know, I know, merlot hasn't got the best of reputations these days but honest to god there are some crackers out there! Often massed produced and definitely overdone in California at least it has grown out of popularity somewhat. WELL, prepare to have your mind changed in a matter of mls!!

    Scottish Lamb Stew

    This stew is packed with earthy flavours filled with mushrooms, turnips and carrots. Tomato paste helps to add more body and those delicious herby dumplings on top make it a complete dish. Hungry yet?

  6. Classic Pepper Sauce

    Classic Pepper Sauce

    The pairing isn’t necessarily for the sauce but more the sauce and the steak! It’s hard to pair a wine just with a sauce. Probably because it’s been a while I just ate sauce for dinner.

  7. Satay Chicken Sandwich

    Satay Chicken Sandwich

    If you haven't got a beer in your hand or you're more of a wine fan like myself, then it's gotta be white with this bad boy. A lot going on in the sandwich so let's choose something that doesn't wanna play the staring role but will leave you talking about the role it played for a long time afterward! Today, that comes in the form of the beautiful Riposte 'The Stiletto' Pinot Gris from winedirect.com.au. I love the 'stiletto' term used for this wine because it does EXACTLY what a stiletto does with the chicken satay sandwich, as it does for many a leg!! It's gonna lift it, elevate it and leave you wanting more.

  10. Turning WIne Into Vinegar

    Turning WIne Into Vinegar

    We’ve been trying to get better at the sustainability thing here at winedirect.com.au... the wines you are ordering are now quite likely to arrive in a cardboard box that we’ve reused rather than just using recycled cardboard. It’s better for the planet and keeps our costs down which in turn enables us to spend a bit more on the delicious wines you’ve been receiving. If we’ve got sturdy enough cardboard in da house, we are using it to get your precious wines out to you...

  11. Grenache

    Grenache

    You might remember the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes - in which a couple of impoverished tailors convince a preening peacock Emperor that they can make him the most fabulous set of threads in the universe. They also tell him that those too stupid or unsuited to their roles within the court won’t be able to see them. They don’t actually make any clothes and the King is too insecure to call them on it, as is his court and the populace who he parades in front of starkers. Nice kit champ!
