Happy New Year! I cracked my very first bottle of 2010 this week. A fine start to another year of wine it was, too. O’Leary Walker Blue Cutting Road Clare Valley Adelaide Hills Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2010. Fifteen bucks – giddy up! It’s easy to forget how floral and high-pitched these blends are on release. In Queensland it’s the perfect time to drink them – this one went well with seaspray and suntan on the beach.

In your GLASS this week…

On the nose: Crack down on wine faults – You don’t have to be a wine snob to pick a faulty bottle, and you might dodge a ghastly wine in the process.

Life is a Cabernet – There are some strange anomalies in the wine world. One of the more perplexing in Australia lately has been the fall from favour of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Clear cut: Glassware – Serving wine at home? The right glassware isn’t just a fashion statement – it can actually make the wine taste better.

What’s in a label? The case against cleanskins – Ever bought a cleanskin wine that you adored? Or couldn’t drink? Here’s how to pick the difference.

Value for money steals the show – Hot off the show judging circuit, here are a few secrets and the wrap up of the show-stoppers of 2009.
