The Christmas Wine list 2021. Part two: The main event.
Best for nibbles and smoked salmon starters...
The best with nibbles
From grapes grown in the best part of Gavi, northern Italy, this wine has the enticing aromas of white peach and flavours of apple, fresh lime and a hint of almond. Delicious with antipasti.
The Best with seafood
The Best Albarino, from the cool region of Galicia in north-western Spain, is a refreshingly zesty white with mouth-watering minerality. Perfect with seafood dishes this Christmas.
Best for smoked salmon
Why not give this fabulously refreshing South African Sauvignon Blanc a go? With fresh fig and guava flavours, this is the perfect partner to smoked salmon starters and creamy pasta.
Best with turkey and all the trimmings...
The best Mighty white
The Best Uco Valley Reserve Chardonnay is exceptional value. Produced in the foothills of the Andes, with tangerine and peach fruit flavours and a delicate creamy edge. Delicious, it has enough mouth-watering acidity to stand up to all the flavours of Christmas lunch.
Best new big red
The Best Barossa Shiraz is really exciting new wine. Full-bodied with blackberry, plum and a hint of spice, this wine was awarded a much coveted GOLD medal immediately on launch in October! Perfect with roast turkey and all the trimmings.
Best robust red
Another GOLD medal winner, The Best Borolo is a robust Italian Christmas favourite with floral aromas, flavours of dried cherries and a savoury, spicy finish.
Perfect with Christmas lunch, game pie and rich casseroles.
Best for Christmas beef, ham and big flavours...
Best Winter warmer
Best with gammon
The Best Garnacha is wonderfully fresh and elegant with concentrated red berries, wild tobacco and subtle hints of French oak. Ideal with roast gammon and full-flavoured cheeses.
