Here’s a new concept we’ll gladly raise our glasses to: An online store offering curated wines. Wanderwine stocks selections handpicked by local sommeliers like Gerald Lu, Singapore’s Sommelier 2010; Fazil Mohammad, World Gourmet Summit Sommelier of the Year 2015; and Stephanie Rigourd, a specialist in boutique wineries.
With such impressive credentials backing the store, you can expect some exquisite picks. And you won't be disappointed. The wines here are thoughtfully categorised by type, country, grape varietal and price. On top of that, each selection is listed together with tasting notes and food-pairing recommendations. We hand-pick a few for you to sample.
Two Hands Shiraz 2012 is well-rated all over the world, and pairs well with light braised-meat dishes like coq-au-vin and pork cassoulet.
Want to switch things up? Try the sparkling Cava Brut Reserva Agustí Torelló Mata 2010 from Spain, which is recommended for light, soft cheeses and dim sum signatures like radish cake and crispy beancurd-skin rolls.
Albino Rocca Vignalunga Dolcetto d’Alba 2013 is a deep red with cherries, red liquorice and earthy undertones. Thanks to a pleasantly bitter note, it’s the drink of choice for pasta or a spicy Thai meal.
