Weekend Social Ostracism?

Czar and hubby loves wine and whenever we have a gathering at their place or elsewhere, we usually get treated to some lovely cask wine, an Australian invention - courtesy of Czar's hubby and his airborne career ;o) .

Well, reading THIS article gave me more insight to the introduction of such a product - due to economic conditions but the last line of the article about enjoying such products made me smile...

For those who are not worried about social ostracism, jump in.

Yalumba Cask Wine - Spatlese Fruity White Vintage 2007


Yalumba's Spatlese Fruity White - Vintage 2007 was lovely, light and fruity! We enjoyed the whole 2 litre of it! If the bunch of us were to be ostracised for that, so be it! Hahaha....


Have A Great Weekend Everyone!


Always strive to excel, but only on weekends.

Hahaha, recently a 2-litre cask of red wine appeared back at home during CNY and a similar discussion came up as we were swigging it - why do perfectly drinkable wines get such a bad reputation just because it packaged in paper instead of glass?

the only 2litre kind of cask, in my case it was close to 5 litres..were the 1s that were on sale for less than AUD 10..

remember all getting drunk on it and forever n ever, we have nvr dared venture to any wine serve that style

550 ml jar of faith : As long as it's good!

Joe : AUD10 for a 5 litre cask??? Wow! That's cheap. Plus you got drunk, that's even more value for your money! Hahaha...

Tummythoz : I'm glad the blog post is educational ;o)

Teckiee : Really? I didn't see any when I was in Hanoi.
