Celebrate in true British style this festive season and serve one of England’s finest wines. Named as a favourite by many of the country’s leading drinks writers, the innovative Lyme Bay Winery has a selection of wines for every occasion, a perfect pour this Christmas and New Year.
Having painstakingly prepared a delicious selection of canapés for a stylish Christmas drinks party, the drinks offering needs to be carefully considered to ensure it enhances the flavours and adds elegance to the occasion.
A serious wine which will appeal to the discerning wine audience, the recently launched Lyme Bay Blanc de Noirs is made using 100% Pinot Noir grapes and provides a wonderful accompaniment to food. The red fruit characters have a strong presence in this white sparkling wine. It has a light copper hue in its appearance with fine, consistent bubbles. On the nose it is rich and earthy with forward strawberry and cherry notes and a delicious richness on the palate is offset by a crisp acidity and a light toast finish. There is no doubt that guests will be impressed. Lyme Bay Blanc de Noirs has a RRP of £24.50 and is available direct from www.lymebaywinery.co.uk.
The wine to have in the fridge which offers great versatility is a bottle of Lyme Bay Sandbar 2015. Fresh and zesty with a range of characteristics including grapefruit, guava, box wood and a hint of blackcurrant, this makes a great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc. It is produced from 100% Bacchus, a grape which is rapidly growing in awareness and popularity. Light to medium in body, Sandbar has a beautiful balanced acidity with a great affinity to food pairing, particularly light, citrus-led fish or chicken pasta dishes. It has a RRP of £13.79 and is available from Oddbins and online at www.lymebaywinery.co.uk.
Make your guests feel special this New Year’s Eve, serve Lyme Bay Classic Cuvée. Blended from the noble Champagne varieties Pinot Noir (81%) and Chardonnay (19%) this sparkling wine, with its delicate fine bubbles, golden colour and slight blush tint, has a refined finish. Underlying lemons, peach and apricot are accompanied by cooked apples, breadcrumbs, honey and almond on the nose. It has a crisp finesse and a classic look. Lyme Bay Classic Cuvée has a RRP of £24.50 and is available nationwide from Marks & Spencer as well as online at www.lymebaywinery.co.uk.
