Only  6 days to go till we celebrate Christmas –

Red or White Wine with Christmas Lunch? Now that is the question!

How about both? 

Let Wilson Wines take you through the courses with these fabulous wines

For the starter be it Soup or fish or indeed both Wilson Wines suggest a great bottle of

Steenbok Sauvignon Blanc

From South Africa this wine has tropical undertones of Gooseberries. It is a well
balanced and easy drinking white wine very refreshing on its own and particularly good with seafood. Enjoy well chilled

For the Traditional Turkey main course how about this stunning white from New Zealand

Whitehaven Riesling  

Its pale lemon straw in colour with delicate and lifted aromas of fresh lime cordial and stone fruit with an underlying gunflint note.
On the palate it is powerful with clean acid definition, this Riesling has all the variety’s characteristics.  The aromatics fill the mouth with lime and stone fruit flavours, with a hint of spice.  The finish is dry and crisp.
Serve lightly chilled.

However......   If red wine is your preference then you could not do better that this wonderful South African wine

Rocheburg Pinotage 

From the Riebeck valley in the Western Cape.Unique to South Africa this deep concentrated  wine has depth and firmness. A Black Cherry nose and
palate gives a uniquely delicious flavour.

For the dessert how about a cheeky little glass of

Wilsons Quay Colombard Chardonnay 

From South East Australia this Wine is a crisp lively dry white wine with fresh ripe fruity Characters. Serve this wine well chilled and is great compliment to a Rich Christmas pudding

Do you have room for Cheese and a glass of sumptuous velvety Port?
How about finishing off your lunch with a portion of  Colston Bassett Stilton (Call into Wisebuys in Narberth or Pembroke they have a superb selection of cheeses)

Smith Woodhouse Port is the perfect choice with Stilton 
The colour of this Late Bottled Vintage Port is an intense and deep Ruby Red.
The nose is brimming with ripe red fruits and there are also soft and delicate
Aromas of black plums and hints of cherries.
On the palate the wine is full bodied with an exquisite and balanced structure
Full of finesse. A perfect way to finish a meal- teamed up with a good cheeseboard-perfect!!
