Having worked for Majestic for many years now, mostly here in the Redhill branch, I have come to the realisation that I can’t answer the often asked question ‘What is your favorite wine?’ There are just too many! I do have preferred styles, I can’t resist a good well oaked Californian Chardonnay and have recently rediscovered a love of Cabernet Sauvignon. In the end a great wine is a great wine no matter where it is from and great wines are my favourites.
As a new comer to the wine world when asked what is my favourite wine, I like to think I'm still yet to find my little piece of perfection in a glass, as an Australian with a deep love for a rich Australian Shiraz I find myself feeling right at home with a nice Barossa Valley, but also enjoy the nice crisp, refreshing taste of a dry Riesling. I believe there is a wine perfect for every occasion!
My favourite tipple would have to be Champagne, preferring the richer, bolder styles. For white a big Chardonnay, or a zippy Gavi. For red, my go to would have to be Rioja. I love discovering new wines from unusual places, so if there's something a bit of the beaten track, I will give it a whirl.
