Wine Entry : Villa Maria New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (2011)

Nice bottle of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, it was a Reserve that had the right balance of acidity and mildness. It went really well with the dinner dishes of mussels and seafood.

Wine Entry : Tyrrell Moore's Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


Tyrrell Moore's Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Pleasantly surprised that such a young Cabernet Sauvignon would be so mellow and welcoming. Good richness in berry fruits with a comfortable non overpowering oak flavor at the end.
 
Description at back of bottle : Tyrrell's was established in 1858 and the company today remains  wholly owned Australian family owned and operated. The Moore's Creek range of wine are designed by our winesmakers to be enjoyed immediately and to complement a wide variety of food styles and cuisines.

Wine News : Goldilocks method for wines

Interesting article on the appropriate temperature for drinking wines. I.e. Goldilocks method for wines.

Red Wine : Recommended 55 DegF or 12.8 DegC
(So it is room temperature in colder climates not Singapore!)

White Wine : Recommended 50 DegF or 10 DegC

Champagne : Recommended 40 DegF or 4.4 DegC

Every 10 degrees over will double the aging process, without the benefit of slow, proper aging.
