1. a long-drawn, high-pitched complaining cry or sound.
2. (derogatory) a complaint or criticism.
Nobody likes it.
Maybe you’ve just made an awesome charcuterie board, but your friend is complaining because you used the expensive 24-month aged iberico ham instead of the absurdly expensive 36-month aged ham.
Or perhaps Arsenal just won their last football match, but the score was 4-3 instead of 4-0.
It’s also possible that your parents booked a ¥5,000 a night resort on the beach, but there’s simply just too much sand and the employees are too friendly.
It’s a good thing this post isn’t about ‘whine’, but rather about:
1. an alcoholic beverage made by fermenting the juice of grapes.
Everybody likes it.
We’ve just added 5 great new bottles from Treasury Wine Estates with prices and flavours that no one can whine about!
Penfolds Koonunga Hill Cabernet Shiraz
Since its first vintage in 1976, ‘Koonunga Hill’s reputation has been built upon its affordable price, its approachability in its youth, and the potential to develop if carefully cellared. Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cabernet is very much a reflection of the Penfolds winemaking style and philosophy. Sourced from premium vineyards across South Australia, the wine is known for its full-flavoured style with excellent Shiraz and Cabernet fruit, firm yet well-rounded structure and balanced oak. Made as a traditional‘ Australian blend’, the Shiraz component provides fleshy fruit flavour while Cabernet provides a frame of fine-grained tannins.
Bright crimson red. A youthful Koonunga Hill disposition arises. Dark sour-cherry, blackberry, rhubarb fruits abound. Aromas of malt/oats/wheat germ with a green olive and pomegranate alert. Integrated, supportive oak awoken. Compact, defined. Pomegranate/plum/dark berry fruits. A white chocolate mousse/creamy dairy chocolate flavour/texture amalgam. On the finish, a charry/smokey impression.

Wolf Blass Red Label Pink Muscato
Pale petal pink. Rich, enticing aromatics of sun-warmed grapes, citrus blossom, rose-petals, and sweet, spicy musk. An opulent, yet delicate palate bursting with sweet berry fruit and floral flavours carried along by a gentle, effervescent spritz to a refreshing finish of crisp, balanced acidity, and a hint of musk.
Beringer Main & Vine Cabernet Sauvignon
Beringer Main and Vine series is the result of excellent collaboration between viticulture and winemaking in order to choose fruit at optimal flavor and balance. The vineyards are very bright with ample sunshine to provide perfectly ripe berries to create approachable wines full of fruit and finesse.
Jammy black fruit with balance of vanilla and richness. The fruit is balanced with clove and cookie spices while at the same time being fruit forward and very enjoyable. Grapes were picked at peak maturity to maintain the fruit’s ripe flavors, the winemaking focused on showcasing the rich black fruit flavors and balanced freshness.
