Now if the question “do you want some wine?” is a no brainer, this one’s for you. Whether you’re catering to a crowd or sipping solo, we’ve got wine recommendations for you and good news — they’re all 20% off all August, while stocks last! That’s right, the Amazing August Wine Sale is happening at major supermarkets and on Boozeat right now for the month of August, so don’t come wine-ing to us if you miss out on this sale!
A glass of class
There’s a reason it’s been served to guests at White House state dinners. Revered for its elegance, a Beaulieu Vineyard bottle is what sets a swanky soiree apart from a more casual event. Perfect for being the ultimate home sommelier, and impressing your guests while you’re at it. Why not opt for their Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon or Chardonnay?
Assembling a delectable cheese board would also be the natural choice for a truly sophisticated affair. Of course, it’ll also pair perfectly with the intellectual conversations you’ll have amongst yourselves as you take down a bottle (or five) together. Here’s to keeping it classy! Get Beaulieu Vineyard California Range for RM 69 (usual price RM 118) at Boozeat.
For the foodies
Foodie friends coming over? You know the ones — they’ve achieved the seemingly impossible and managed to get a seat at Dewakan, and are on a first name basis with the most famous street food aunties. Well, when you pick up a bottle of Wolf Blass Gold Label Cabernet Sauvignon for your next dinner party, even they will have to raise an eyebrow in approval. The award-winning wine from South Australia pairs well with a range of cuisines, taking the work out of brainstorming the best wine pairings for your guests.
This full-bodied, oaky number is a smooth sip, with the usual notes of dark fruit — typical of a Cab Sauv. Let us know if your taste buds can detect the surprise hints of olive and tobacco. Wolf Blass makes wines that work, whether you’re serving it up with appetizers, dinner, or a 3am snack (we don’t judge). Get Wolf Blass Gold Label for RM 109.99 (usual price RM 159.90) at Boozeat.
Unwind with some wine
When the going gets tough, the tough get going. We know what it’s like to feel completely drained after a hectic work day — but we don’t complain, we wine. We’re wine-glass-half-full kind of people, after all. How about a bottle of Beringer Founders’ Estate Merlot, from California’s oldest winery to help you unwine-d? Okay we’ll stop now.
Beringer’s Merlot embodies everything people around the world love about Napa Valley wines: its smooth and medium body. Expect blackberry, black cherry and juicy plum on the nose, accentuated by hints of violet and mocha. Get Beringer Founders’ Estate for RM 74 (usual price RM 112) at Boozeat.
