The Perfect Red Wine For Christmas
Il Pumo Primitivo San Marzano
Our perfect pick for the red wine lover this Christmas is Il Pumo Primitivo by San Marzano. This award-winning red from Apulia, Italy is a very easy drinker and sits well at any table. There are intense notes of prunes and cherry combined with rosemary and vanilla making a full-flavoured wine that is soft and balanced, and eminently drinkable.
As Il Pumo is our pick for the Christmas dinner table, we have knocked £2.20 off per bottle up until Christmas.
Our White Wine For Christmas Dinner
Saint Clair Sauvignon Blanc
Right now Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is the go-to white wine and it is easy to see why. Crisp and dry, the Marlborough region is producing the best whites available, and this one by Saint Clair is no exception. Showing intense flavours of passion fruit and herbaceous notes over a creamy texture, this is a great wine for white wine and non-white wine drinkers alike.
We can’t just discount the red, so we have knocked £3 off per bottle up until Christmas.
What’s For Pudding?
We also have a range of sweeter (and often stronger) wines that are ideally suited for sipping slowly after a meal. Our dessert wine is typically drunk at Christmas and enjoyed with large family meals and rich desserts such as Christmas pudding. We stock dessert wines from France, California and New Zealand, covering the dessert wine grapes of Sauternes, Muscat, and Riesling.
