Cheeky Monkey 2010 White

January 11, 2011

BobTo all 4 week white wine makers I want to say that the Cheeky Monkey 2010 White is a real keeper.

The 2010 White has a very distinctive nose to it and a real distinct flavour also. Most of you have probably heard of and probably made Pinot Grigio with it’s unique citrus and tropical fruit flavours but it’s the Verdelho grape in this blend that makes it so special, with it’s unusual mineral like flavour.

CheekyIt’s very distinctive and is very good and I recommend it to any 4 week wine kit maker. 

I also must admit that I’m drinking this wine with little or no ageing but what was i to do-  my rack was empty!

Wines for the New Year

January 6, 2011

NeilNow that the New Year has past us by- its time to think about making wine for all of your celebrtions coming in 2011. May I suggest trying the first two Limited edition kits which have now arrived in store… and are perfect wines for every occasion you may have planned!

January LimitedsThe Australian Shiraz/Viognier is a unique twist- the small amount of white Viognier amplifies the fruit character of the red Shiraz. It was a huge hit at the Limited Edition Wine Tastings.

The Pacifica White is all about instant gratification. The blend of four grapes is all about easy (and early) drinking.

I know many customers have already been in and picked up their Jamuary Limited Edition wines. For those customers who have not pre-ordered these kits, you still have an opportunity to for a limited time while stocks last (which won’t be long).

Both are fanatastic wines and you will not be disappointed in purchasing one or both of these wines!  They will help make all of your celebrations most enjoyable!

Happy New Year from the Staff at Brandon Store!
