Festive Wines

Christmas is fast approaching and last minute preparations are well under way to make sure we are all ready here at Donnington Valley Hotel & Spa.

I am busy putting the finishing touches to the wine list for the festive season. As I was doing it, I thought I would share with you a few wines I think you must try.

White

2011 Môreson, Miss Molly, Kitchen Thief, Sauvignon Blanc, Coastal Region, SA
£22.00 – special price for December

A beautiful rich, dry style of Sauvignon Blanc. It has underlying flavours of tropical fruits and granny smith apples. This wine goes wonderfully with foods such as salads, turkey, white meat and sauces. Great to drink with a starter or with the Christmas main course.

Red

2008, Moreson, Miss Molly, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Coastal Region, SA
£22.00 – special price for December.

This is a fresh, ripe red wine with concentrated red fruits. Full bodied with oak overtones ending in a soft dry finish. Matches well with red meats such as beef and lamb but also would go nicely with turkey.

So have a try of these wines at home or here in the Winepress at Donnington Valley Hotel & Spa and let me know your feedback.
