Hmm ... that should be a change from the mid to low range wines that have been served in the last few years. (Although I did try a Penfolds Thomas Hyland Red im MEL QP last week. 8)

That'd be a nice freshner-upper before I take off on QF29 in 3 weeks; I wonder what bubbly they'll be serving in 23D and how will it compare? :? :wink:

What a pity I pass through that lounge only twice in March :)

Wouldn't mind a few more samples of Krug. Sure beats anything available in the back of the B*S.

Krug retails for around $280 for a bottle, so I will certainly get my value's worth.

Have to say that I loved the Wira Wira Scrubby Rise Shiraz down the back of the bus on the weekend, it tasted like it was designed to be drunk at 10000ft unlike some wines, very moorish!

The SQ lounge at SIN used to have Krug. Now its only Dom Perignon.

Hmmm wonder if I can bring forward my next aussie trip?

I agree Markis10 - the Scrubby Rise is the most drinkable wine I've had down the back for a long time. Can get in short supply though, especially when I relieve the FA of a significant portion of the trolly-load....
