Throw away that cheap little chocolate advent calendar that you bought from ASDA 4 weeks ago – because this one is going to blow your mind!
Reserve Wines have created a unique ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ Mixed Case of wines (£150) – perfect for one a day in the run up to the weird Christmas of our lifetimes.
With Tier announcements, lockdowns and social distancing, this Christmas is going to be like no other, but there’s one thing that will NEVER change – we’ll always eat too much and drink too much – and with the latter – Reserve Wines have got us covered.
The Mixed Case features sparkling, reds, whites, dessert wine and even port to see you through this festive period – basically the perfect case either for you and your loved one or – a rocking (socially distanced and safe) Christmas party.
Here’s what you’ll find in the case…
Francesc Ricart, Cava Brut NV (Spain)
Rich and elegant, with peach and citrus fruit and a crisp finish
Taltarni, T Series Brut NV (Australia)
Light and floral on the nose, then with a creamy texture and long finish
V, Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand)
Juicy, bright Sauvignon with plenty of tropical fruit and gooseberry
Luis Canas, Rioja Blanco Vinas Vejas (Spain)
Serious white Rioja, plenty of depth and complexity
Iona, Chardonnay (South Africa)
Lemon and lime peel give way to marzipan and hazelnuts, complex and elegant
Borsao, Seleccion Blanco (Spain)
Stacked with fruit, an explosion of apricot and peach, with nectarine and pineapple
Kaiken, Malbec (Argentina)
Our bestselling malbec, cherries and plums enriched with chocolate and vanilla
Le Roc de Chateau Puybarbe, Cotes de Bourg (France)
Medium bodied Merlot blend, blackcurrants, dark plum and a long spicy finish. Perfect for beef.
Domaine Billard, Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Beaune Rouge (France)
Ripe berries, sweet spice and elegant tannins, top-notch Burgundy. Great with Christmas Dinner
Cantina di Negrar, Corvina (Italy)
Soft red cherry and sweet vanilla with a refreshing finish
Lieutenant de Sigalas, Sauternes (France)
An aromatic sweetie full of orange peel and honey. Drink with fruit tart or Roquefort cheese.
Niepoort, Ruby Dum (Half Bottle) (Portugal)
Bright fruity ruby port that just demands a cheeseboard
But that’s just not all. Reserve Wines have also created a ‘Christmas Day Mixed Case‘ (£75) which will take you from waking up, right through to opening your presents, having dinner, watching the Queen’s speech, eating too much cheese and then falling asleep in front of the telly watching Ant & Dec.
Starting off with some Cava (ideal for Buck’s Fizz), there’s Sauvignon Blanc (perfect with Smoked Salmon), Rioja Blanco, Cotes de Bourg ‘Gaia’ and Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Beaune (to drink with the Turkey) and a Niepoort Ruby Dum Port to finish off with the cheeseboard. Perfect.
