The Christmas Wine list. Part three: The grand finale.

 Fantastic wine, port and sherry to perfectly round off a festive feast. Great with Christmas pud and cheese. Yum. 


Best for strong cheeses

Hand-picked grapes are dried for at least 3 months and this Amarone is aged in large oak barrels for 24 months and in bottle for 12 months before release. It's rich and intense, with flavours of black cherry and vanilla and it’s perfect with strong cheeses and wintry casseroles. A GOLD medal winner too!

Price: £16

Best Christmas Port

With aromas of toasted nuts and complex flavours of dried fruits and toffee, it's a delight to linger over at the end of any Christmas feast or to savour on a cold dark evening. Try it straight from the fridge with a full flavoured cheddar or a Christmas pud. It's a double Silver award winner this year as well!

Price: £11

Best Semillon 2021

Best with pud

The Best Botrytis Semillon is an unctuous Australian dessert wine made in the same way as Sauternes, with honey, lemon and candied apricot flavours.
Delicious with Christmas pudding or Christmas Cake.

Price: £6
