I’ve clearly worked for The Society for too long because I’ve tried nearly all of these! They really are good wines, but here’s a few of the standouts from the list for me:
Moscato d’Asti Elio Perrone: this is so light and has just the right sweetness to make it stunning with a fruit salad. It’s the wine that got my wine-hating friend to join The Society just so she could buy it by the case… (and still does!)
Tahbilk Nagambie Lakes Cabernet Sauvignon: just stunning for the price. My go-to cab sauv and one of the few wines I buy by the case.
Saleta Moscatel-Sauvignon Blanc: I remember when some colleagues and I first tried this, it was the star of the tasting we were at. So juicy and fresh, and really quite unlike any other white wine I know. Very light and summery.
The Society’s Exhibition Rioja Reserva: Every time someone brings a bottle of this to a gathering I know it’s going to be a good night. I just love it - it really is a benchmark Rioja year on year and is one of my favourite Exhibition wines.
Glad to see some of you recommending the Albarino - I haven’t tried that yet but I’ll give it a go!
