Chambers Rosewood Rutherglen Old Vine Muscat Sticky Sweet Dessert Wine

It's autumn, the leaves are falling, and there's a chill in the air. This is the time of year when the palate desires sticky sweet dessert wines. Some of the best sticky muscats from the new world come from the Rutherglen region in north eastern Victoria.

Wine and Chocolate Pairing

Australian Wine Tasting Christmas Hamper Corporate Wine and Chocolate Gift Set Koonunga Hill Penfolds Wedding Gift Hamper Wine and Chocolate Pairing Wine and Chocolates Gift Hamper

Wine and Chocolate Pairing

In our Penfolds Koonunga Hill Wine and Chocolate Tasting Hamper we're pairing the Shiraz Cabernet with a Belgain dark chocolate bar made with Madagascan single origin cocoa beans...

There is something soothing about looking out at the autumnal colours, or sitting in front of the fire with a glass of red in the hand. A fine Pinot Noir is perfect for this time of year. We say fine, as Pinot Noir is recognised as a difficult grape, but when it's carefully managed from bud burst to harvest through vinification to the bottle, the end result can be spectacular. Great Pinot Noir typically comes from...
