Whoo hoo, it’s the weekend! Good times and wine, the perfect pairing.
If you’re looking for some fail-safe wine recommendations, look no further. Here’s a collection of wines we’ve enjoyed recently for you to check out. There’s always a range from cheap and cheerful to wines with a little more extravagance.
Wine reviews can be boring, imagery is way more fun, so our top 12 are photos embedded directly from our Instagram feed.
You can check out last week’s top 12 here.
Let us know, in the comments section below, the wines you’ve enjoyed recently.
@vinaceous is a relative newcomer to the Australian wine scene, having only been around for ten years, focusing on wine varieties that excel in specific regions. We love the eye-catching labels which are based on the actual billboards of the late 1800s. And of course the juice inside is pretty good too. Fabulous tropical fruit aromas bursting from the glass!

Today is a day for #romance, so that means popping a cork. It's rare to have anything else but a screwcap on #Aussie #wine nowadays so cracking this one open is a novelty. A really enjoyable savoury and creamy #chardonnay by @lyonswillestate with some decent length. #valentines #ValentinesDay #vino #vin #winelover #wineoclock #whitewine #winewankers #conrad
I'm making a promise to drink a lot more Muscadet over the upcoming 12 months. It's such a fabulous food wine and so affordable. Look for wines that are 'sur lie' on the label. This means the wine has had some yeast lees contact, which generally the racy wine a little bit more flavour. Fantastic with seafood. Tasted delicious oysters during @mantarestaurantandbar oyster month. Post by Drew. #winewankers #wine #mantarestaurant #oysters #vin #winelover
This is a beautifully creamy and nutty #chardonnay by @_TarraWarra_ out of the #YarraValley! Still carrying some crisp and fresh fruit with citrus and stonefruit characters, it was perfect with our homemade ham, mushroom and olive #pizza! #wine #vino #vin #food #winelover #whitewine #wineoclock #winewankers #conrad
Tonight I ate my body weight in top-flight burgers and washed them down with a river full of different wines. Why? I wanted to find the ultimate burger wine. This @voyagerestate cab merlot and its juicy red fruit flavour is pretty much perfect. Best burger of the night between the six chefs battling it out went to #danhong of Ms Gs. Another great event by @merivale for their #marchintomerivale festival. Post by Drew #winewankers #winelover #wine #vin
One of my favourite wineries, @yangarraestate from McLaren Vale, gave me a sneak peak at their top wine, the 2013 Ironheart Shiraz (released next month). And it's a cracker, just as good as the 2012. If you love juicy rich warm climate Shiraz with a deft handling of oak, you're gonna love this. Pictured here is proud winemaker @Petefrase at the recent #qantas EpiQure wine tasting. Peter is the current James Halliday winemaker of the year; deservedly so. Post by Drew #winewankers #wine #vin #winelover
