A lovely half bottle from the Heathcote Women in Wine 2023 Advent calendar (thank you for the sample).
Deep plum red in the glass with violet, cherries and earthiness aromas. In the mouth it’s juicy yet savoury. Super delicious and moreish 😋 — 22 days ago
Kindly #gifted and thoroughly enjoyed with our homemade pizza 🍕
Super easy drinking, not in your face, simply just pleasant and perfect for a Sunday night in. Juicy berries and cherries pretty much sum it up.
Yum! Loved it!

A delicious sample from the Heathcote Women in Wine who have just released their 2023 wine advent calendar (get onto it!!).
We had it with a homemade vindaloo curry and it was perfection 👌
Think juicy plums and cherries, with licks of oak, hints of tobacco and a wonderful elegance. Smooth and sultry.

We bought this from Aldi for about $20. I have a soft spot for the Loire so I couldn’t resist - have you read my blog posts from my Loire trip in May??
This bubbles is like a lemon and lime sherbet. Nice and dry, bloody easy to drink and has an oomph of yeasty complexity that had me going back for more.
Take me back to the Loire please 🙏 — 4 months ago
Thank you Hutton Vale for this sample - Wow I’m in love 😍
Deep black cherry red in the glass with notes of blackberry, liquorice and spiced muffins on the nose. In the mouth it’s juicy, full bodied and oh boy, simply sensational. Cherries, berries, mouth puckering tannin (decant 😉).

Oh wow this is my kind of Chardonnay.
Both Mr Spittoon and I loooved it. It's so super smooth with delicious creamy and toasty flavours. Think apple pie with a hint of toasted nuts and a lovely lick of lemon curd. Full bodied, long finish and bloody good!
It's a single vineyard wine which has been growing on volcanic soil at 870m altitude. Barrel fermented in french oak. Drink now or cellar up until 2030 - of you can hold onto it that long!
Thank you Stockman's Ridge for kindly sending us this sample bottle. All opinions are my own, life's too short to drink bad wine after all. — 2 months ago
I would buy this $40 champagne 🍾 from Aldi again, I enjoyed it!
It was the texture that first hooked me, super smooth and silk like. It definitely has a tartness to it, however I love a zingy citrus, green apple acid driven tipple so this is up my alley. There was also a hint of toasty-ness to it.
We enjoyed it with homemade pizza and it surprisingly made a great accompaniment. It’d be fantastic with things like fish & chips too, as it would cut through the grease perfectly 👌
Its also a great champagne to drink in your pj’s on a Sunday night #justsayin 😉

Perfect pairing to our dumplings and Thai beef lettuce cups 😋
Thank you Hutton Vale Farm for this sample of your off dry 2023 Riesling it went down fantastically 👌
Pale yellow in the glass with delicious aromas of perfumed pears and candied lemon. In the mouth it’s divine, super light yet refreshing. Silky, moreish and super juicy.

Thank you Heathcote Women in Wine for this sample bottle. These lovely ladies have recently opened up orders for their 2023 wine advent calendar - 12 half bottles of wine to countdown the days to Christmas - epic!
This Shiraz is fantastic! It’s a bit farmy, sort of perfumed and has bucket fulls of flavour. Black fruits, tar, almonds, oak, tobacco, vanilla..
The list goes on. It’s one of those wines you just keep going back for another taste and whiff 😋 — 2 months ago
Thank you Crittenden Estate for this sample of your newly designed Pinocchio label of your 2022 Pinot Grigio.
It went down a bloody treat! We actually enjoyed this on our 7th wedding anniversary in the sun and it was perfect - dry, fruit driven and darn smashable which was perfect as we reminisced about our wedding in Vanuatu. Think juicy pear, apple and a lick of lemon grass. Yum! — 2 months ago
