It’s the season for sparkle and shine. The presents are wrapped and menu prepared. Just one question begs to be answered, what wine is on your Christmas table? Our winemaker Jared Stringer, gives you a rundown of sensational pairing suggestions for the festive season to leave your family wanting more.
Go traditional :
Pair Roast Chicken/Turkey with Bird in Hand Chardonnay/Bird in Hand Italian range Arneis – These slightly fuller bodied white wine styles lend themselves to the moorish flavours of the crisp roast bird
Pair Roast Lamb with Bird in Hand Italian Range Montepulciano/Nero d’Avola – These spicy Italian reds are the perfect match to the delicate flavours of Australian Lamb.
Pair Roast Beef with Nest Egg Shiraz/Nest Egg Cabernet Sauvignon – The richness of the Nest Egg Reds compliments the beef perfectly.
Pair Coffin Bay Oysters and Spencer Gulf Prawns with Bird in Hand Italian range Pinot Grigio or the Bird in Hand Sauvignon Blanc – Oysters and Prawns generally need light delicate wine matches, these ‘Aromatic’ styles are fresh, dry and crisp with a balanced acid finish.
Pair Crayfish/Crab with Nest Egg Chardonnay – The sweet rich meat of crayfish and crab is balanced with the beautiful, buttery richness of our Nest Egg Chardonnay.
