Wine Sale : Giant Wolf Blass Yellow Labels Sale

Usually I do not associate Giant with wine sales, however, these Wolf Blass Yellow Label wines are value for money and very enjoyable to quaff.

The Yellow Label Moscato was a big hit during one of my relative's wedding dinner, fruity, sweet, pleasing with tiny sparkling bubbles.

Wine Entry : Swords Select Botrytis Semillon 2005 (Australia)


Digging through my collection of wines, I found this bottle of Sword Select which I bought in Melbourne's Queen Victoria market. Exceedingly good value for money and tastes really good.

Smell : Mild, fragrant honey

Taste : Akin to thick viscous honey, with a slight flora grass at the end

Description in the front of the bottle : The luscious wine displays an abundance of citrus marmalade and honey characteristics that give it a smooth palate and a lingering finish.

Wine News : The Dragon arises!

I was surprised by this news article claiming that China has already overtaken Australia in terms of quantity of wine produced. However, it looks like a good deal of it was consumed domestically. Only 8.5 per cent of bottled wine was imported. We have already started to see some Chinese wine in the Singapore market, but thankfully we are pampered with a range of wines from France to Australia to USA.

Wine News : Asset Wine Management Fiasco

News on the Asset Wine Management Fiasco. It is also sad that the reputation of wine has been tarnished because of a few black sheep. This is the second Wine investment company after Universal Asset Group.

The old adage still applies everywhere be it wine/investments/money "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." Do you seriously expect to get returns of 20 percent within a period of two to three months? Nonetheless, my sympathy to those investors who were deceived by these con people.
