For lovers of fine wine
With Valentine's Day this Sunday 14 February just around the corner it's good timing to know about this boutique bottle shop if you're thinking of getting a quality bottle of champagne. The choices are extensive ranging from a reasonably priced staff recommendation of the Loire Valley's Monmousseau Cuvée J. M. ($25.95) up to the higher priced Cristel Louis Roederer Champagne for I think about $399 which is locked up in a glass cabinet. They also stock many imported and boutique Australian wines — it's definitely not your average mass-marketed Liquorland bottle shop. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and you definitely need to be careful while walking through the displays of wines — leave your kids at home to avoid accidents.
I must give credit to the reader Gobsmack'd who mentioned this bottle shop to me on my post about the Food Bloggers Award Launch at La Mint. He suggested a few recommendations to try which I unfortunately didn't have on me at the time when I visited.
PROS: Extensive range of International wines, knowledgeable staff
CONS: Don't expect to find Passion Pop or cheap wines by the cask
MUST TRY: Free tastings on Saturdays, Gossett Grand Rosé (staff recommendation)
Crates of French wines
Cornichons, cheese and a bottle Monmousseau Cuvée J. M. $25.95
