This Christmas ditch the Champers and support British with a glass of England’s finest sparkling or light red from family-owned Hampshire winery, Hattingley Valley.
Classic Reserve (£30) – A Christmas Day staple
An elegant wine, pale gold in colour with delicate and long-lasting bubbles, Hattingley’s Classic Reserve is ideal to kick off the proceedings. Beautifully complex, with aromas of green apples, creamy nougat and freshly baked brioche; pair with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on Christmas Day.
Blanc de Blancs 2013 (£47.50) – A Christmas Eve treat
WineGB’s Gold award-winning Blanc de Blancs 2013 is sure to be a crowd pleaser around the dinner table. Made from the best Chardonnay grapes, this deliciously fruity and honeyed wine has a well-balanced and refreshing acidity. Enjoy on Christmas Eve with a traditional fish feast, such as poached salmon in a creamy sauce, or save for an extra special treat with your turkey.
Rosé 2017 (£36) – To kick off the festivities
A harmonious blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier with luscious strawberry coulis flavours, Hattingley’s latest release has a subtle delicate salmon hue and a soft mousse, with bright red fruit and summer berry aromas. A joy to drink on its own or bring out this sparkling rosé with canapés.
Kings Cuvée 2014 (£80) – voted Best Sparkling Wine in the UK 2020
The champion of sparkling wines, the 2014 Kings Cuvée is Hattingley’s very limited release and a premium blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Recently nominated Best Sparkling Wine in the UK, it makes for the ideal celebratory aperitif, enjoyed with a caviar and sour cream blini.
STILL Pinot Red 2016 (£25) – a winter warmer
The second wine in the STILL by Hattingley collection, Hattingley’s first range of premium still wines, this red bursts with aromas of cherry, raspberry, strawberry and pomegranate, accented by hints of toast and dark chocolate. Made from 100% Pinot Noir, this light wine may be enjoyed with turkey or simply sip by the fire on Christmas or Boxing Day.
