Christmas wine ideas... 1 December

#christmaswinecalendar 01.12🎄🍷

Happy 1st December! Surely it’s time to start planning your Christmas wines? We thought we’d help out by picking 24 wines, across various styles and price points, which we think would work well with Christmas lunch 😋

There are so many flavours going on that it can be quite tricky to match wines. If you’re planning Turkey and all the trimmings you’re looking for a rich, full bodied white or a light to medium bodied red with soft tannins. If you’re having beef, then you can go bigger on the red. If it’s duck or goose, then oaky Chardonnay or Pinot Noir would be perfect. Having said all that, if there’s a wine you love and that’s what you want on Christmas Day, go for it!

The first wine on our Taste Argentina Christmas calendar is the Los Haroldos Roble Blend 2016🎄 🍷

Los Haroldos Roble Blend 2016

Grapes: 60% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot

Tasting note: Malbec brings coffee and chocolate notes, Cabernet adds a touch of cassis, while Petit Verdot gives the wine structure and finesse.

Food match: this would work well with roast beef.

Price: currently on offer at £9.99
