WINE OF THE WEEK: De Bortoli’s Show Liqueur Muscat

ONE FOR LUNCH: IT doesn’t matter much whether you are a traditionalist and like to finish a celebratory meal with desserts of the wonderfully rich, dark Christmas pudd -style, or more modern playthings like horns of chilled dark chocolate filled with whipped soft white chocolate, a great wine that’ll match either is De Bortoli’s Show Liqueur Muscat. This rich fortified is loaded with raisin, fig and dried fruit flavours, and as English wine scribe, Matthew Jukes once wrote, is like “liquidised boozy Christmas cake in a glass.” Well worth the $22 price tag.
