I get more than a little frustrated when people say, “Life’s too short to drink cheap wine”. I can fully understand it when people say, “Life’s too short to drink bad wine”, which makes much more sense to me. I have been lucky to have tasted and drunk many good value-for-money wines (I prefer this over the word cheap). The Pig in the House range from Windowrie is a case in point. Add to this, the fact that the wines are made using organic principles, and you have a nice, neat and all-round attractive package.
Up front freshness, juiciness, liveliness, youthfulness and dark fruit richness. All the ‘nesses’ you want in one sentence. Blackberries, blueberries and peppery notes add to the exuberance. Did I detect a licorice note? There’s a creamy textural element that makes the fruit sit lovingly long on the palate. Crikey, it’s got lots of flavour without being full bodied, making it approachable, gluggable and affordable all in one. A lot to like here!
