Whether you’re an oenophile aka wine connoisseur, or just like indulging in an occasional tipple or two, the festive season is the perfect time to stock up on wines. In the spirit of celebration, open a few bottles at your year-end family feast or bring one as a gift for your Christmas party host.
And when it comes to affordable options, it’s hard to beat the selection found at our local supermarkets. Check out the wines from the Just Wine range, found at any of the FairPrice Finest stores. From now till 31st December 2023, any purchase of their wines racking up a bill of $60 or more will entitle you to a gift set too.
Those who are entertaining friends and family during the festive period can check out the full range of wines that have been categorised into old-world and new-world wines. Rest assured that a professional wine consultant and a panel of experts have vetted each bottle through a blind taste test.
For the uninitiated, old-world wines are generally from vineyards in Europe. On the other hand, new-world wines are produced in non-traditional wine-growing regions such as South America and Oceania.
If you’re wondering which countries the wines come from, Just Wine has old-world wines from France, Spain, and Germany, as well as new-world wines from Chile and Australia.
When it comes to red wines that are from the old world, you can find these 2 French origin wines: Chateau De Ruth ($40.27) and Domaine De L’Amandine ($40.27), which feature spicy notes and hints of liquorice.
Now we come to the new-world collection with Australian wines ($7.97-$30.18) and Chilean wines ($28.26). This collection has every type of wine one could like – Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chardonnay, and Merlot.
These are mainly on the fruity side, featuring flavours like blueberry, cherries, and grapefruit. There are also underlying spicy, smoky, or woody tertiary notes.
To be fair, there’s no particular need for a special occasion to bring out the wine. An evening by yourself is a perfectly good excuse to bust out a bottle and pour yourself a drink with your meal.
And if you don’t feel like splurging for such casual times, Just Wine also has bottles from $7.97 – that’s a steal. Wines at this price include varieties of Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Shiraz.
The crystal wine glasses are dishwasher-safe and lead-free.
If you were in two minds about whether or not to buy wine as gifts for several friends or stock up your own wine fridge, here’s an incentive for you. A gift set containing 2 Chef & Sommelier crystal wine glasses worth $45.80 awaits with a minimum spend of $60 till 31st December 2023. That’s just 2-3 wine bottles from the Just Wine range billed in a single receipt.
Note that this promo is only applicable when you go shopping for the wines at FairPrice Finest stores and is limited to 1 redemption per transaction.
Whether you prefer European wines or those from other parts of the world; whether you like red or white, Just Wine from FairPrice Finest has got you covered.
And with 35 FairPrice Finest outlets islandwide, it’s pretty convenient to find one nearby to do a quick wine run. But let’s not leave things to the last minute; after all, you want to choose the best wines to present to your loved ones and score that gift set before they run out.
