About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

Monsters Attack!!!

I can't ever recall buying a bottle of wine for the label. There was that 20 year old bottle of burgundy bought at auction which had a label some might call romantic, others, very suggestive, but I new nothing of that when placing my bid.

But when this bottle popped into view, I was completely helpless, it had to come home.

Who can resist a garish fifties monster scene, crashing and burning his way through a scared and frightened city - not me, that's for sure!

'A full 750ml of monster mayhem.'

Where there are fierce laser eyed monsters, there are sure to be damsels in distress, ahem, these appear to be ladies in undress. They sure need saving anyway!

Looks like the dudes who've perpetrated all this monster madness. Can they make wine? I have absolutely no idea. Do they know how to have fun? What do you reckon?

Available Prince Wine Store.

As a non-drinker who cooks with wine (and loves to serve it to her friends), I always buy wine by the label -- in fact, I've posted about that today. Something this artistic has to taste, well, interesting at least, if not downright delicious!

Yep, they can make wine - Col McBryde, one of the winemakers, won this year's Young Gun of Wine award.

Hi lydia, I'm sure it's going to be great, the low alcohol is right down my street.

Hi claire, you think I might have known that, I went to the young guns wine tasting at the store...obviously not paying enough attention, or maybe too much time spent with the guy who made his own salami. Thanks for that.

I like this very much too - only had the chardonnay but I loved it.
