X’mas 2007 / Taboo/ Apartment Viewing / Wine Session

This year’s X’mas celebration was held at K.T’s Lorong K bar. We went pot luck and ended up with Katong Laksa, Cold Storage’s sushi, KFC, Pizza Hut, Longans and home-made Avocado/Coconut dessert. We also ended up playing the game Taboo and I bombarded the opposing team with wine terms and French chic. We also took the opportunity to visit the next door new apartment block which was been launched. I admire the time sacrificed by the housing agents on Christmas day.

The wine we had was Yarrabank’s Crème de Cuvee N.V. This wine was bought in Australia from the cellar door of Yering Station in 2004. I got very good reviews from the guests that the wine was sweet, creamy, refreshing and did not leave a bitter taste like some Champagnes. There was somewhat of a strawberry flavour interlaced in the buttery gold of the wine.

Description on the back of the bottle : French winemakers of the House of Devaux bring with them generations of experiences in the production of this premium bottle-fermented sparkling wine while Yering Station offers a committed winemaking team and state of the art winery. Dedicated to creating a great dessert wine, Yarrabank makers have selected special parcels of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Rigorously implementing the traditional methods including hand picking and three years or less, they have captured the essential character of the grapes. Yarrabank Crème de Cuvee is a liquored style which suits Asian food, hard cheese and dessert.
