How to Choose a Bottle?

By Kevin Chan
May 28, 2021

Trust me, we’ve all been there. Entering a wine shop (or aimlessly browsing an online catalogue) but without a slightest idea where to start, or what to look for. It is very normal indeed. Wine comes in all sorts of colours (red, white, rose, now with pink and orange), country of origin and a plethora of winemaking techniques being employed leading to various styles of wines. There must be a perfect bottle for the occasion somewhere, but impossible it seems to ever find it. 


Wine is a good beverage for most occasions, if not all. Nonetheless, you need to know THE occasion for the particular wine, in order to choose THE perfect wine for a specific purpose. Think of it as different outfits that you wear to different occasions. It is basically the same thing. A light & fruity Prosecco and a full-bodied, rich Shiraz are both lovely wines to enjoy, but each of them is better suited to a certain occasion. For example, the Prosecco would be a wine more suitable for a light pre-dinner drink, as the bubbles and acidity refreshes your palate for the dinner to come, combined with a lean finish it is light and fresh and easy to drink. Perfect as a cocktail party drink. On the contrary, a full-bodied Shiraz tastes even better when enjoyed with fatty food, such as steak. The fat of the steak and richness of the wine balances each other out while enhancing the flavours of both. So next time when you head out, match your wine along with your outfit.


All that being said, in the end it is YOU who is going to drink the bottle, not anyone else. No two palates are the same, so what makes sense for others doesn’t necessarily work for you. Wine is subjective, so just choose whatever styles you like and enjoy and don’t be pressured into recommendations and trends that you are not comfortable with. Cheers to your perfect bottle!
