Christmas Gift Ideas: Wines

I think whenever you think of Christmas, not only do you think of Santa and happy children, but there is also Christmas parties and having a little tipple!

Next on my Christmas gift guide are a few wines from Pernod Ricard so if you are heading to a party or get-together you can choose the perfect one from the selection below.

Jacob's Creek Sparkling Shiraz (£10.39)
This is the perfect wine to add a little bit of festive sparkle. It's great for after dinner with its notes of blackberry and raspberry with a soft, velvety finish. 

Brancott Estate Classic Pinot Noir (£12.39)
This fruity Pinot Noir is great for enjoying with some Christmas treats whilst writing out your Christmas cards. It has notes of black cherry and dark berry with a slightly spicy finish.

Jacob's Creek Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir (£10.39)
This is the perfect wine for a get-together with your neighbours. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes' citrus flavour goes beautifully with cream cheese and salmon blinis. It's great on its own of as part of the traditional Buck's Fizz.

Brancott Estate Classic Sauvignon Gris (£10.99)
The fresh pear, blackcurrant and nectarine flavours of the Sauvignon Gris are the perfect complement to your Christmas pudding.

Campo Viejo Reserva (£12.26)
This Spanish rioja is a perfect wine to sip at whilst enjoying a Christmas film. Team up the cherry, black plum, blackberry, clove, pepper, vanilla and coconut flavours with Spanish jamón and manchego for the ultimate indulgence.

Jacob's Creek Reserve Shiraz and Reserve Chardonnay (£10.39 each)
These two Jacob's Creek Reserves suit Christmas parties wonderfully. The Chardonnay is fresh with lemon citrus flavours and the Shiraz has dark berry and chocolate flavours. As if that wasn't enough, it smells just like a traditional Christmas fruit cake! 

Jacob's Creek Classic Riesling (£8.09)
The Riesling is a wine to get you through the present wrapping. This light-bodied white wine has lime and zesty flavours - perfect with a sausage roll to keep up all that wrapping energy!

Mumm Cordon Rouge NV (£32.09)
This gorgeous champagne is great for getting in the spirit on Christmas Eve. It is a golden yellow colour with notes of fresh fruit and caramel. It smells wonderfully like tropical fruit and vanilla.

Graffigna Centenario Malbec (£9.99)
The Malbec is a complex and rich wine with dark berry flavours and a hint of black pepper. If you're opted for goose instead of turkey this year, it cuts through the fat and richness of goose perfectly.

Campo Viejo Gran Reserva (£16.79)
The Gran Reserva is a lovely wine to team with the obligatory turkey curry on Boxing Day. It's ruby red in colour and is full of the flavours of ripe berries with a hint of spice.

Brancott Estate Terroir Sauvignon Blanc (£12.49)
This wine has flavours of fennel and apple combined with rich grapefruit. It goes wonderfully well with asparagus wrapped in Parma ham.

Perrier Jouet Grand Brut (£43.19)
This is a lively and floral champagne with fresh flavours of lemon, peach and mango. Perfect for celebrations!

Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque (£141.79)
This extremely decadent champagne is a vibrant bubbly complemented by notes of almond milk and crystalline freshness.

Happy drinking!
