Christmas Wine suggestions @ H2G Wines

Tiptoeing through the minefield that is matching wine with your Christmas food can be a bit of a nightmare to say the least – but fear not we are here to help!

A lot of us put ourselves under pressure to produce perfect food over the Christmas period so here are some tips and recommendations to take the stress out of the wine side of things.

Sparkling Choices!

Some people prefer a straightforward fruity Prosecco Frizzante whilst others much prefer a complex Champagne. There is a middle ground to suit tighter budgets too – Cava from Spain. Made in the same way as Champagne, Cava in general shows a little less secondary flavours and more fruit than Champagne. It also has enough weight to multi-task as not only an apertif but also as a nice pairing to seafood and white meats.

If you like a more straightforward sparkler try our Idilicum Cava from Dominio de la Vega.

If you want something more complex to rival Champagne but at a fraction of the price try our Cava Brut Reserva Especial also from Dominio de la Vega.

All- Rounders

Unless you’re like me and you like to match each course with something different why not choose a  multi-purpose wine that will suit different courses and occasions.

These 4 whites here will go with seafood, turkey, game and are also lovely on their own.

Equally if you choose the right red it can match turkey, game, lamb and beef at a push. All of the 4 choices below also have round, smooth tannins so can be enjoyed on their own.

Nailed on Classic Matches

Some things are just meant to be, so here are some matches that work an absolute treat – trust us, they’ve been tried and tested!

Party Quaffers

Here are a few whites and reds to have in your back pocket to sip away at or to take out when some friends come around.

Reds

Blow Out Wines

If budget were unlimited these are the 3 wines (1 white, 1 red and 1 sweet wine) that I would pick to give yourself something extraordinary!

  • Belondrade y Lurton Rueda – One of Spain’s best whites – huge complexity and power.
  • Domenico Clerico Barolo – Barolo can often need a fair bit of time to come around. But this is made by Domenico Clerico the masters of making early approachable Barolo – a powerful wine from 2015, a ripe and fruit forward vintage.
  • 12 Year Old Vinsanto – An incredible sweet wine with an array of complex flavours with salted caramel to the fore.
