The lovely people at Wine Selectors sent me a mixed box of wine. Three white and three red. I must say I am partial to a nice glass of wine and getting a box sent to me was just wonderful. I love presents in the mail, don’t you?
I was also blown away that it came with tasting notes and recipes. Also with suggestions of what bottle to have for each meal. It certainly has taken the guesswork out of mealtime.
I was sent a box of the Wine Selectors Chef Series below are the ones that I received:
• Alastair McLeod Riesling 2010
• Ben O’Donoghue Pinot Gris 2011
• Ian Parmenter Gewürztraminer 2012
• Ben O’Donoghue Shiraz 2011
• Frank Camorra Tempranillo 2010
• Grossi Barbera 2011
The wines so far have been so yummy and matched the meal that I have cooked, and also for one that I did not. Ben O’Donoghue’s Shiraz melted in our mouths and of course, my hubby had to help me taste them. He has also loved all the fancy cooking this week. The Shiraz was rich in flavour and did not taste like it was only made in 2011 it had strength beyond its age. Very impressed with this drop of wine.
The recipe card for Ben O’Donoghue’s Shiraz 2011 was “Grilled Miso Cured Wagu Beef“
Picking a wine for your meal
Have you thought about what do I cook for dinner? What wine would go with what meal? Well, the lovely suggestions from wine selectors have taken the guesswork out of it all. Search Wine Selectors for recipes and get suggestions for wine suggestions for your meal.
I wanted to try out a meal not from the recipe cards to see if the wines matched and it did. I cooked chicken parcels wrapped in bacon & stuffed with pumpkin, feta & spinach. I teamed this dinner up with Alastair McLeod Riesling 2010, and again the wine really matched the meal and was finished off between hubby and me.
The Riesling was fruity and crisp, just right for these hot days and nights we have been having.

Hubby and I are enjoying our lovely wine and thanks again Wine Selectors for giving us such a great box to taste. I especially loved the recipes and will cook them all in time.
