WINE AND SPIRIT RECOMMENDATIONS
At Wine Wise, we understand that choosing a wine or spirit is not an exact science. So many factors come into it - how well you are feeling, where you are, who you are with, even the mood you are in can make a difference.
Listed below are some of the wines and spirits we have been enjoying. Please note that these recommendations are independent and under no influence/incentive from suppliers.
A big month for celebrating with family and friends - or maybe just on your own. Here are some wines to go with your Christmas lunch. These wines are versatile and can be enjoyed with or without food.
Wishing you a very happy festive season from Nina and her family to you and your family. xx
Picpoul de Pinet
Baron de Guers
Style: A light refreshing white wine perfect for those seafood starters. Picpoul translates as 'Sting on the Lips' referring to the searingly high acidity of this wine. This acidity works well with light sauces and refreshes the palate perfectly. Lime and green apple dominate in this simple yet very pleasing wine.
Available from Sainsburys - £6.75
Style: A perfect wine for a traditional Christmas dinner, the red-fruit aspect of this wine will work well with turkey and cranberry sauce. Full of flavour and low in tannins, this wine appeals to many, including those not used to red wines.
Available from Waitrose - £11.99
Style: A rich, sumptuous dessert wine matching many the flavours of the traditional Christmas pudding. Raisin and honey, orange and fruit peel, this wine can be enjoyed as an aperitif, with dessert, with cheese or just on its own.
Available from Waitrose: £12.99
