Who’s with me? The Christmas season is in full swing. We even had our company Christmas party last night and look what I won.
I couldn’t have won a better present LOL A gift card to our local Wine Store. I’m looking forward to treating myself to a special bottle. I’ve tried some new wines this past week, and thought I would share them with you.
Grenache is a grape many people have heard of, but did you know it originated in Spain as Garnacha. This Sangre de Toro is from the Penedes region, just South of Barcelina and is a great value. Finding good wine under the $16 price point is great news this time of the year because the season can be costly. Cherry notes with vanilla flavours from the oak, it’s a great wine for the winter stews we tend to cook to warm us up.
Nothing says Christmas like sparkling wines. Sparkling lights and sparkling wine go hand in hand. This Zonin Prosecco is a spectacular value that you can use to serve with an apertif at a Christmas party or even bring in the New Year.
And my wine of the week…..
It’s not often you see a South African wine as my wine of the week but this one definitely deserves the title. This Plum Pudding Hill Syrah by Stellenzicht is a mouthful to say and a fabulous mouthful of wine. It’s a bit of a Christmas treat at $35 a bottle but worth every penny . Gorgeous flavours of baking spice and plums, this wine is my new favourite from South Africa.
I know it’s a busy time of the year for everybody getting ready for the upcoming big day . Thank you for taking the time to read my blog
Till next week, Cheers
