Wine and Spirit Recommendations

At Wine Wise, we understand that choosing a wine or spirit is not an exact science.  So many factors come into it - how well you are feeling, where you are, who you are with, even the mood you are in can make a difference.

Listed below are some of the wines and spirits we have been enjoying.  Please note that these recommendations are independent and under no influence/incentive from suppliers.


I am very lucky to be visiting Australia this month so thought it appropriate to recommend to awesome Aussie wines.  Australia made it's breakthrough into the world of wine by selling 'Sunshine in a Glass' from the large, non-specific region of South Eastern Australia.  Nowadays, we are looking for more specific provenance of wine and below we look at the Barossa Valley in the state of South Australia and Rutherglen, Victoria.

Shiraz (Syrah)  

Ebenezer & Seppeltsfield

Barossa Valley

South Australia



Style: Full bodied, spicy and rich with a smooth finish.  High alcohol level so please go easy!  

Barossa is located near the city of Adelaide and benefits from the heat of the land with a little of the cooling influence of the Southern Ocean.   There is a strong Germanic heritage and here the name Shiraz was developed from the German pronunciation of the French grape Syrah.  Barossa and other regions in Australia have perfected this grape variety to show complex flavours matched with an easy drinking style.  

Available in Marks and Spencer.  Price Category: Mid price (£15approx)

Rutherglen Muscat





Style: Beautiful oxidised flavours of fruitcake, honey, walnut & coffee.  This is a dessert wine  made from the Muscat grape, giving lusciously sweet flavours balanced perfectly by acidity to leave the palate feeling fresh.  Fantastic as a dessert or accompanying Gateaux de Miel or cheeses.

Available in Waitrose: Mid Priced (£12.99)

We will endeavour to keep our recommendations from major UK wine merchants.  This is to ensure that the wines are widely available to all.    We are an independent company so our recommendations are given from experience and knowledge and are not subject to persuasion from the merchants mentioned. Prices shown are the prices as advertised at time of recommendations and we cannot accept any responsibility for subsequent price changes.
