Sparkling Wine for Christmas
Langlois Chateau Cremant de Loire Brut NV
Loire, France - £14.49
A light lemon colour with delicate bubbles. Quince and peaches on the nose with grapefruit and peach on the palate. Just a hint of honey. A blend of 60% Chenin Blanc, 20% Chardonnay and 20% Cabernet Franc.
White Wines for Christmas
Haute Cabriere Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2016
Franschhoek, South Africa - from £9.99
Pioneer of this genre with it's 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir blend. Just a hint of a sweetish impression thanks to ripe fruit and smooth richness from extended lees-ageing. Still soft and supple and incredibly easy drinking.
Bladen Little Angel Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Marlborough, New Zealand - £12.99
Zingy tropical fruit flavours with a long finish. Fresh scented gooseberry nose with hints of lemon zest. Medium bodied and not overpowering, lively acidity and fresh fruit flavours.
Red Wines for Christmas
GlenWood Chardonnay Vigneron's Selection 2015
Franschhoek, South Africa - £18.99
Barrel fermented with wild yeast, 12 months in new French oak barrels. Gentle oaked nose leading to a creamy buttery palate. Almonds and vanilla with a smoky peach and citrus finish.
Vinedos Real Rubio Rioja Crianza 2014
Rioja, Spain - £12.99
Classic Rioja Crianza from the boutique bodega of Real Rubio. Aged in oak barrels for 18 months, this wine is leagues above supermarket Riojas. Brambly dark red fruits are coupled with subtle oak flavours of cigar box. Drinking now but will still improve in the bottle for the next few years.
Te Hera Kiritea Pinot Noir 2012
Martinborough, New Zealand - £12.99
Only a very limited quantity of this premium handcrafted Pinot Noir are produced. With redcurrant and a hint of ripened strawberries and eucalyptus on the nose and vibrant fruit on the palate, this Pinot Noir is followed by layers of dark cherry and tobacco. Fine, elegant and with just enough acidity and tannins to balance against the berry flavours.
Chateau Musar Hochar Pere et Fils 2013
Bekaa Valley, Lebanon - £13.99
Rich red berry flavours and dark fruits, layered with an austere vegetal quality synonymous with Musar. Very much old world in style, with restrained flavours and a dignified dryness. Not too heavy, perfect as a stand alone wine or with most meat dishes.
Fortified Wine for Christmas
De Krans Cape Ruby NV
Calitzdorp, South Africa - £11.49
This ruby puts many LBVs to shame. This SA port type wine has a proper port taste with rich flavours of cherries, ripe plum fruit and hints of chocolate and spice.
