Wind 2020 down with FairPrice's Just Wine range, Food for #Live show
Make your year-end celebrations even more special with an assortment of wines from Australia and Chile that cater to every occasion
Perfect to Just Wine down 2020
If you are deliberating on what wine to bring home for your year-end Christmas gatherings, new year countdown parties or even just a cosy night in, look no further than Just Wine at FairPrice.
Established in 2017, it offers an assortment of entry-level wines from Australia and Chile that caters to every occasion and helps you create special moments.
Just Wine recently underwent a brand and label uplift exercise and is relaunching its all-time favourites in new designs.
Adopting a modern approach using vibrant colours and landscape illustration, the range makes for the perfect gift this holiday season.
Rest assured about the quality as selections are based on blind-tasting of a dozen wines by a panel of experts headed by Just Wine's esteemed consultant Ch'ng Poh Tiong, regional chairman of Decanter World Wine Awards and vice-chairman of Decanter Asia Wine Awards.
He said: "Our goal is not only to deliver foremost quality at a remarkable price point. We want to also ensure that when the consumer picks up Just Wine, he or she will be armed with all the necessary information and recommendations to make their purchase of Just Wine an unforgettable experience."
Kick-start your wine journey with three varietals from Down Under, like Just Wine Shiraz 2018, winner of the prestigious 2020 Decanter World Wine Awards bronze medal.
It has a ruby red complexion with notes of violets, raspberries and dark cherries. The bold-flavoured wine leans towards a smooth but dry texture, pairing well with red meats, briyani and Chinese claypot rice.
Just Wine Sauvignon Blanc is a white-wine grape variety that has grapefruit aromas, is zesty and vibrant, and oozes freshness from the first sip to a mouth-watering finish.
It is best paired with seafood, dim sum and canapes.
Lastly, Just Wine's Cabernet Sauvignon is a sweet-flavoured red wine that gives off fruity notes of blueberries and cherries, with hints of capsicum.
It has ripe and crisp tannins with a balanced and fresh finish, and is best paired with roasted meat and stew.
This trio of wines are available in two pack sizes ($29.90 per 750ml bottle, $7.90 per 187ml bottle).
Alternatively, try the Just Wine Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Chile at $28 per 750ml bottle.
The Chardonnay is a white wine featuring delicate citrus and apple notes, balanced to a fresh finish, and is best paired with dim sum and seafood.
Then there is the Cabernet Sauvignon with its signature capsicum, red pepper and blueberry notes.
This dry and bold-flavoured wine has a soft acidity that pairs beautifully with red meats such as beef, lamb or venison.
The Merlot is another red wine with light blueberry notes and a whiff of mint, and pairs best with full-flavoured meat like chicken or pork.
