15 of the best wines to drink with Christmas dinner

Hattingley Valley Rosé 2014

Want something a little closer to home to toast the day with?

This pink fizz picked up a Master in our Global Rosé Masters last year, rising above some seriously impressive wines in the rankings from Italy, Australia and France.

Hattingley Valley’s rosé was singled out for its delicate aromas of apple, red berries, rhubarb and toast, along with its appealing creamy-textured palate.

One judge enjoyed the fact that the pale pink fizz even seemed to carry some blackberry, alongside some zesty citrus and redcurrant fruit flavours, with a mouth-filling, fine mousse to boot. The wine had “lovely definition” according to Stefanowicz, with a pleasing persistence.

The last word on her tasting sheet simply said “yum!”, which tells you all you need to know.

Winemaker Will Perkins enjoys our Rosé with Cherrystone Clam Chowder served with freshly baked bread, so perhaps consider serving this wine with a warming, lightly creamy starter like the one above, or perhaps some combination of goats cheese, caramelised pears and walnuts, just don’t forget the crostini.
