Sticky and dessert wines

CHOICE’s expert tasters found some heavenly dessert wines that don’t cost the earth.

18 Aug 2008 | The right dessert wine can add that special touch to a dinner party, and leave you with money left over for the perfect dessert to accompany it.

coloured alcopops


Sweet, sexy, and deceptively alcoholic. Almost a third of CHOICE’s teenage testers couldn’t detect the alcohol in a Vodka Mudshake.

26 Feb 2008 | Alcopops are very appealing to younger people, and contribute to underage and binge drinking.

30 Jul 2007 | Two mainstrem brews included for comparison (Victoria Bitter and Tooheys New) scored higher than plenty of more expensive premium beers.
