Why You Need a Chilled White Wine for Your Next Celebration

Can’t we all generally agree that good wine is the best accompaniment to every occasion and celebration with your loved ones? With many choices and varieties out there, it can be hard to decide what to select for your special event. We have made a list that will surely leave your guests (and yourself!) satisfied.

Birthday and bubbles

Whether it’s your birthday or a guest’s, a bottle of bubbles is a definite must-have on the table to celebrate the special day. Sparkling wine such as Prosecco is our recommendation for this type of occasion. It’s light, fresh and fragrant but also a great aperitif to prepare your palate for all kinds of meals. It goes especially well with seafood, cheese, cured meats, pizza and spicy Asian dishes, making it among the easier wines to pair with a variety of food with hundreds of food pairing guides out there.

With many Prosecco brands to choose from, we highly recommend bringing out the De Bortoli King Valley Prosecco or Dal Zotto Pucino Prosecco to your table to make it a day to remember. The first one is an award-winning frequent crowd favourite due to its fragrant fruity tones and the latter is among Australia’s most trusted prosecco labels.

Colleagues, champers and celebration

A ‘wine down’ with your workmates after a tough day at the office just calls for a trip down to the pub for a crisp Chardonnay with its rich aroma and citrus flavours. We recommend the exceptional Leeuwin Estate Prelude Chardonnay for its complex tones, richness and poise. Best served with game meat, creamy pasta and fancy barbecue, this will be a crowd favourite and the perfect accompaniment to the end of everyone’s workday!

If it’s a celebratory work party, however, our recommendation will completely change. After all, work accomplishments call for a celebration with a well-deserved French Champagne. We love the fresh, crisp and very drinkable Pol Roger Brut Champagne NV. This tends to be a favourite among Australians despite being less well-known compared to big Champagne houses. This refined champers is the perfect choice to surprise coworkers who are used to other classic Champagne name brands – sometimes you just have to show off your knowledge, you know?

 

Family festivities

No matter the occasion: casual family meets, christening or retirement party, a fresh and fruity Sauvignon Blanc is a safe and easy choice to cater for family functions. Pairing well with all kinds of hearty and zesty meals such as mango salads, seafood barbecues and peppercorn sauce, it’s almost a no-brainer to have a Sauv Blanc at hand for a fun time with family. For a high-quality Australian Sauvignon Blanc, one made in Adelaide Hills is the way to go and the Wirra Wirra Hiding Champion Sauvignon Blanc will be the perfect palate-cleansing wine for all the great conversations to come after the meal.

However, if you’re trying to go for a surprising but equally enjoyable pairing choice for hearty meals, we recommend a Sémillon. Known to work well with the bold flavours of seafood, all kinds of meat, cheese and dishes with cream sauces, this fresh, zippy wine will be a pleasant surprise at any family event. As per James Halliday’s suggestion that the Hunter Valley region produces Australia’s top-rated Semillon, we highly recommend the Brokenwood Hunter Valley Sémillon for your family festivities.

Weddings and wine

With weddings come the numerous lead-up occasions such as bachelorette parties, bridal showers, and wedding rehearsals up to the wedding day itself. They bring with them many opportunities to have a much needed cheeky bevvy (or three) and we got them covered.

Whether it’s a family dinner situation at a restaurant or drinks at a bar, we recommend the pink and aromatic Chandon Brut Rosé NV. It’s vibrant yet crisp and the refreshing flavours of strawberries, cherries and watermelon will ease the wedding jitters out of you.

As for the big day itself, go with the classic Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, it will be a surefire hit with the guests! The best Champagne to serve at a wedding should typically have enough sweetness to balance the naturally acidic Champagne, and the Veuve Clicquot is among the best Champagnes to celebrate the special day regardless of your style and theme. A chilled sparkling wine, especially in a warm wedding venue, is a must after all!
