It seems like an age ago since the last post on here! Everything gets pushed aside for the Christmas rush which starts mid November and lasts right up to Christmas Eve. This year was particularly busy with orders being left very late to grab the best deals possible.
This year we found ourselves drinking the Christkindl Mulled Wine. Gently heated the spices really shout Christmas from the glass and it was a great way to start the day. The white wine this year was the Mud House Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. The usual favourite of mine the Highfield Sauvignon was out of stock (I knew I should have hidden a few bottles earlier in the year) but the Mud House made for an impressive replacement – and was cheaper as well.
The red wine started with the Anakena Merlot from Chile. Selected for its soft, approachable nature this went really well with the superb Turkey crown we ordered. After the meal we moved onto Jip Jip Rocks Shiraz from Australia – with its heavier alcohol and spicy, fruity punch this made a great sipping wine to fall asleep to!
With the snow and chilly weather the Gluhwein has proven its worth over the past 2 weeks with a glass being served almost each night.Share and Enjoy:
