December Box Wine Information
Find the new Christmas classics here
It’s cold, it’s grey, and that winter sun holiday is looking unlikely. So let’s follow the sunshine via the wines we sip this month. Inspired by a quote from Galileo Galilei: “Wine is sunlight, held together by water,” Mummy Wine Club is venturing south this December where summer is in full swing. These are some of my favourite regions and producers in the Southern Hemisphere that are quietly (and some not so quietly) leading a revolution in wine style and quality. They are fun and vibrant, but also thought-provoking and pioneering. There’s no better time to encounter them than over the holiday season when we can hopefully slow down and enjoy wonderful wine and food as a celebration.
Now normally Christmas is synonymous with luxury treats, special dishes, and above all, traditions… wine is free flowing, and quite often it’s the good stuff! But often we assume this is a time for the serious classics…structured Bordeaux, rich Rioja, crisp Chablis, and luscious Sauternes. But did you know that there is a twist on every classic available from the Southern Hemisphere?
Read on about the wines and please join the virtual Wine Tasting on Thursday 17th with special guest, winemaker Kevin Judd of Greywacke.
I hope subscribers are as impressed with these wines as I have been. If you’re keen to repurchase any of them come visit the Bottle Shop.
