A Case for Amphora

The flavour imparted by oak barrels in wine has been dwindling, as drinkers seek fresher, fruit-forward styles that showcase grape over everything else.  Enter the amphora - its shape helps fermentation, is made of natural material and is a little porous - like an oak barrel in every way except that it imparts no flavour and seems to have worked well for centuries.

This week’s selection celebrates the long hot days ahead and the rewarding pleasure of cool, crisp refreshments.

Lunar New Year Lunar New Year

Lunar New Year

As another Lunar New Year begins, what better time to indulge in the great food of our neighbouring countries than with a delicious bottle at your favourite local BYO restaurant. And with the next three months of pork barreling and pigheaded statements to match an Australian election, there may be no better place to mix tears of political exasperation with those incited from your choice of spicy dishes.
