‘Tis the season to be jolly, and to indulge in a delicious festive tipple or two. Whether you’re looking to pop a celebratory bottle of fizz with friends, ensure your Christmas family feast has the perfect wines, or are looking for a gift, the award-winning, family-owned Hampshire winery Hattingley Valley has a bottle for every occasion.
Blanc de Blancs 2014 (£41.50) – the finest festive fizz
Whether you’re looking for a crisp glass of bubbles to start your Christmas morning, or a celebratory bottle to accompany your festive turkey feast, the Blanc de Blancs 2014 is the perfect pick to make your Christmas day sparkle. Made from the finest parcels of Chardonnay grapes, which continue to mature and develop in the bottle until opened, this is a deliciously fruity and honeyed wine that is sure to impress. With citrus and green apple aromas, layered with warming hints of honey, nuts and marzipan, this bottle is an ideal accompaniment to a Christmas day breakfast of salmon and scrambled eggs, or paired with an extravagant roast turkey dinner with all the trimmings.
Rosé 2019 (£38) – the ultimate Yuletide tipple
Delicate pale pink in colour and bursting with notes of bright red fruit, flavours of pink grapefruit and a touch of sweet marshmallow, the Rosé 2019 is a versatile and vibrant number welcome for any occasion. Offering both a gentle sweetness and a slight earthy texture, the Rosé 2019 has the power to transform ordinary moments into celebratory ones. Enjoy alongside a range of sweet and savoury bites such as a honey glazed Christmas Eve gammon or a cranberry pavlova with lashings of cream.
Classic Reserve (£32) – a sparkling New Year’s Eve serve
Ensure a sparkling start to 2023 with the elegant and award-winning Classic Reserve. A true crowd-pleaser, this balanced English sparkling wine seamlessly blends several vintages and boasts an abundance of fine bubbles. With aromas of green apples, creamy nougat and freshly baked brioche, this wine is ideal to pair with party canapés and a guaranteed bottle to ensure your New Year’s celebrations go off with a bang.
STILL Pinot Noir 2020 (£25) – a warming Boxing Day bottle
An excellent choice for cosy winter nights and candlelit Christmas dinners, the STILL Pinot Noir 2020 features rich hints of dark chocolate, deep accents of oak and delicate aromas of cherry and raspberry. With an elegant structure and silky finish to every sip, this red wine is best enjoyed with a slice of Boxing Day leftovers pie, a warming casserole or plate of cheese and chutney by the fire after a long winter walk.
STILL Chardonnay 2020 (£20) – a post-Christmas pick me up
This STILL Chardonnay 2020 is a silky smooth white wine made from 100% Chardonnay grapes aged for six months in oak barrels, lending a touch of creaminess to the palate whilst still retaining a vibrant freshness. With pronounced aromas of ripe orchard fruits and an earthy oak texture, this wine is the ultimate accompaniment to any buttery seafood supper, creamy post-Christmas curry or even leftover turkey sandwiches laced with cranberry sauce.
All wines are available by the bottle, case or in a beautiful gift box making the perfect Christmas present. Available to purchase at www.hattingleyvalley.com.
