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

In Part Three we look at a fantastic wine, port and sherry to perfectly round off a feast. 
Amerone_with_award

Best for strong cheeses

We recommend: The Best Amarone. Hand-picked grapes are dried for at least 3 months and the wine 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 in the International Wine and Spirits competition this year.

Price: £16 down to £14 until 2/1/21

Tawnyport with award

Best Christmas Port

We recommend: The Best 10 Year Old Tawny 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 Silver IWC award winner too.

Price: £12 down to £11 until 2/1/21

sherry_award

Best with pud

We recommend: The Best Pedro Ximenez. Don't be put off if you're not a fan of sherry as this luscious, rich, unctuous creation is Christmas in a glass! Keep it in the fridge for those moments when you just want to feel amazingly Christmassy. This year it won a Silver from the DWWA.

Price: £6.25 for 37.5 cl down to £5.50 until 2/1/21

An alternative, indulgent and very simple Christmas pud recipe 

Take a dessert spoon of marmalade, place in a bowl and microwave for no more than 10 seconds just to warm it gently (too long and it will start to boil). Place a generous blob of vanilla ice cream over the marmalade so that it just starts to melt into the warm orangey loveliness.
Drizzle a little chilled Pedro Ximenez over the top. Enjoy!
