If you’re seeking the perfect gift for your favourite wine aficionado this year, you’re in luck. Our festive wine boxes were so popular last year, we’ve brought them back for 2018! With 12 bottles from D. Byrne & Co, your special someone is guaranteed to find a new favourite:
One bottle of Luna Prosecco Spumante Brut
An ideal sparkling for all occasions over the Christmas period.
A deliciously light and fruity Prosecco with hints of apple and peach on the nose and a fresh, softly sparkling palate with characters of soft, ripe stone fruits.
Two bottles of 2017 Cloud Factory Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough
This one will remind you of what made Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc famous!
The Cloud Factory Sauvignon Blanc has tangy grapefruit aromas with a zingy finish and impeccable balance. The perfect aperitif, yet enough weight and fruit to go with fish or white meat dishes.
Two bottles of 2017 Colomba Bianca Grillo, Sicilia
A rich, romantic, floral nose. Stone fruit and citrus fruit lead on to a fresh, vibrant palate with an elegant and harmonious finish – simply delicious!
One bottle of 2017 Macon Lugny “Les Charmes” Domaine Camille Paquet
A rich and powerful Chardonnay.
A true Maconnais white with steely elegance and real finesse. This has vibrant citrus fruit and a lovely minerality. It is a truly good example of a traditional white Burgundy and a delicious food accompaniment.
Two bottles of 2015 Boutinot “Les Coteaux”, Cotes du Rhone Villages
Immediately impressive; this wine reveals its class from the start. Brambly fruit underpinned by subtle oaky nuances, lovely sweet spice; warm star anise with a touch of cinnamon. This classic Cotes du Rhone Villages is enriched with specially-selected parcels from the cru vineyards of Seguret, Sablet and Cairanne.
Two bottles of 2014 Bodegas Ondarre Reserva Rioja
Leather, vanilla and spice of traditionally made Rioja enveloped in a smooth and textured palate. Balanced, with ripe, wild strawberries and integrated tannins through to a long, lingering finish. Smooth enough to drink on its own, but the perfect accompaniment to any red meats.
One bottle of 2014 Tabali Vetas Blancas Pinot Noir, Reserva Especial
Something a little bit lighter, extremely easy drinking yet serious red. A “by-the-glass” must, this handbitingly pretty Pinot is a second sip stunner. Hugely lifted wild strawberry nose that follows through on the full, earthy palate.
One bottle of 2016 Maggio Old Vine Zinfandel
A fantastic accompaniment for Christmas dinner; whether it be turkey or roast beef.
Distinct and luscious. Flavours of dark plum and chocolate lead to a hint of oak and a smooth finish. A blockbuster of a wine, not for the feint hearted.
Whether you’re buying for someone special or treating yourself this Christmas, this wine box really is the ultimate luxury gift. To find out more, stop by The Shop at The Fleece Inn and speak to the lovely Clare – we’ve even got a show box for you to check out in person!
