Get your wines delivered within 3 hours in Klang Valley with WineTalk this CNY!

Wine was discovered about 6,000 years ago by accident when native yeasts stuck to grapes stored in containers turned the sugars in the grapes into alcohol. And today wine become our favorite beverage to a lot of us. I read in an article in Telegraph UK and found out here are some interesting benefits from drinking wine? could actually

1) Stop weight gain - this has not work on me yet lah... but according to the recent study from Washington State University, in 2012 researchers in Korea found that another compound found in red grapes called 'piceatannol' has the ability to block the processes that cause fat cells to grow.

2) Prevent cancer -  Scientists have revealed that 'resveratrol' may also help to prevent head and neck cancer. Researchers found that the compound has the potential to kill the damaged cells that can lead to certain cancers

3) Stop bug bites - If you have a bed bug problem, drinking a glass of red wine before bed could be the solution. Research from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, found that bed bugs prefer blood that isn't tainted by alcohol. 

4) Prevent memory loss -  Using rats, researchers at the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine found that reseveratrol helped prevent age-related memory decline. Once the rats who had been treated with resveratrol were two years old, they had improved learning, memory and mood function. 

5) Help you live longer - Scientists have found that resveratrol suppresses molecules that cause inflammation and compounds in the blood which interfere with the production of insulin, thus helping us to live longer and healthier lives. The researchers, from the University of Buffalo, also found resveratrol reduced the development of type 2 diabetes and strokes..

Whatever the reasons are for you to drink wine, I think basically wine makes us feel happy lah...

So I picked up 3 bottles of wines recommended by wine advisors in WineTalk and these Chateau du Seuil labels are exclusive to WineTalk.

Chateau du Seuil was built between the 13th and 14th Century and is located just 10km north from Aix-en-Provence, in the heart of the Provence. The 300-hectare domain has a magnificent view that spans from the Sainte Victoire in the east to the Mediterranean in the south west, surrounding by a woods and a great biodiversity of deer, partridges, hares or wild boar, taking opportunity to pick the local wild thyme. 

The Chateau de Seuil develops wines that have a unique character among the best wines of Provence. Situated on a plateau, at an altitude between 350 and 450 meters, the vineyard benefits from the sun and a particularly favourable and diverse terroir for growing grapes: dry, filtering limestone soil with diversified exposure; a dry and hot climate in summer but cool at night; a permanent and beneficial Mistral breeze that reduces the risk of disease; an altitude that limits the alcohol content of wines and gives them freshness.

This is a superb, classic Provence Rose – with a light, shiny, bright, clear salmon colour, it shows red fruits and white flowers aromas blossom on the first nose. A gourmet citrus juice carries through on the palate in a fresh and lively impulse. An elegant and exquisite final delights the taste-buds. 

I love this rose wine, taste so sweet and smooth. This Château du Seuil rosé can be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif or as a match for grilled meats and Mediterranean dishes. Highly recommend to you guys to try out this!

Conti Formentini was created in 1520 by the Formentini family; Venetian Counts, when they purchased the existing castle in the town of San Floriano del Collio, the highest hilltop village in eastern Friuli and the surrounding feudal lands. Wine from the vineyards surrounding the Castello Formentini and the hills of San Floriano have been made here ever since and the Formentini cellar is considered one of the oldest in Collio. Selected from vines growing at around 250m height, their Pinot Grigio is aged on its lees for about 6 months to add depth and richness. It offers an ample and pervasive perfume with an engaging fragrance of wild honey, walnut husks and dry flowers. It is dry, smooth and creamy on the palate and offers a fresh, harmonic flavour with a very persistent finish of pears and fruit with ripe yellow flesh. 

This wine is light golden color with yellow highlights. The taste is dry, smooth, creamy, fresh and very harmonious. Love how the aroma with hints of peach and pear I think. 

Here I wan to share some nuts and wine pairing tips I have learn from WineTalk.

Hazelnuts – Chardonnay, Syrah 
Chestnuts – Merlot Walnuts – Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon 
Candied Walnuts – Cabernet, Riesling 
All types of Pecans – Pinot Noir or any lighter red wines, Riesling 
Roasted nuts of all kinds – Rich, red wines 
Spicy almonds or pecans – Cava 
Cashews or pistachios – Lighter, zesty, summer-friendly wines 
Almonds of any kind – Prosecco, cava, champagne 

This is just a guide for nuts & wine pairing and best for you to try and experiment with your taste buds to see which is suitable to you

Well I personally love to shop in WineTalk, plenty of selection, proper information and review stated all in one page. It was easy to browse, buy and get it deliver without any hassle! Seriously the 3 hours guarantee delivery thingy is totally a winner... better & faster service than Lazada or Zalora lol!
