With three for Christmas Day whatever the menu, two to party with on New Year's Eve, plus one to gently ease you into New Year's Day, this is your essential six-pack for the festive season.
Begin Christmas as you mean to go on, with a riot of fascinating flavours with the incredible To Boldly Go. Who Mourns for Grapes? Where cherries meld with perry pears and Discovery apples, this sparkler is dry, great as an aperitif solo or with snacks (hint: make like the Italians and try with charcuterie). With turkey and trimmings share the modestly apparelled but oh, so versatile Balls Bittersweet. Reminiscent of Yarlington Mill in colour and phenolic profile, this daughter of Medaille d'Or and Foxwhelp is full of juicy apples, soft tannins and Spanish citrus notes and sweet spices.
Thick Cut with its bold autumnal flavour of candied apricot, orange oils, winter spices and sweet fruity richness from time in ex-cognac casks is absolutely the perfect partner for fine, nature cheddars and is also excellent with salty blue cheeses.
New Year's Eve is all about the sparkle so we've gone all perry. Table Perry for the evening - it's joyful off-dry nature makes it everyone's friend - and the exquisite Brut de Poiré for the midnight bells. Made with locally grown French varieties of pears by the champagne method, this is beautifully aromatic with delicate pears and lemon blossom on the nose and all soft creamy citrus fruit, brioche, honey and flowers in the mouth, with deliciously fine bubbles.
For New Year's Day we're light and sprightly, with the perennially popular Hard Rain Hot Pink. With aromatic hops and blackcurrent-induced pink hue but only 3.5% alcohol, this will enliven as it entertains. It’s bright and fresh, full of tangy flavours of cranberry, grapefruit and rhubarb, with tropical fruit notes from the hops.
