As we ring in the New Year, many of us are looking for something to toast with. If you want to celebrate the coming year with something special and unique, here are five wine recommendations for your New Year celebrations. From bubbly champagne to festive sherries, there's something for everyone here.
Van Hunks Drinks - MCC Brut Sparkling Wine
We can't imagine New Year celebration without something bubbly! And here is when a delicious Brut Chamgane produced in South Africa comes to play. This Van Hunks Méthode Cap Classique Brut is an unparalleled sparkling wine, a blend of red and white grapes displaying the full, balanced yeasty complexity.
The Van Hunks Brut Sparkling Wine is fresh and zesty, with a lovely golden colour, tiny bubbles, creamy and biscuity with a smooth and dry finish.
Van Hunks Drinks - Brut Sparkling Mead
If you think that sparkling wine is not your drink, then Van Hunks has another option for you. Their Sparkling Mead!
Van Hunks Sparkling Mead is a delicious mead made just of three ingredients: honey, yeasts, and water. No artificial flavourings, colours, or sugars were added to the Van Hunks mead. This is an all-natural sparkling quaff.
Van Hunks Sparkling Mead is dry and floral. Expect refreshing sparkling mead with floral notes, honey hints, and dry finish.
Kiss of Wine - Smooth Canned Chardonnay Event Pack
Smooth is a sophisticated Chardonnay from The Loire Valley in France. It has soft citrus notes and a fresh mineral taste.
- Nose: an amazing combination between floral and honey aromas
- Palate: this is all soft citrus and florals, with hints of honey and fresh minerals.
- Food pairing ideas: This wine has enough complexity to hold its own against a bold seafood dish such as cod. It'll also melt in the mouth when paired with a piece of creamy goat cheese.
Xeco Wines - XECO Amontillado
XECO Amontillado is a delightful sherry, with nutty and vanilla notes coming to the fore. Rich and really quite sweet on the nose, this wine is bone dry by the time it lands on your tongue making it a wonderful aperitif for your New Year party.
XECO Amontillado tastes better when it is chilled and complemented with a good bit of cheese. It's fine to drink it neat as well as over ice with a splash of tonic or lemonade.
NICE Drinks - MALBEC
And for those who always drink red, here is Nice Malbec. A delicious, juicy, and vegan wine, produced in Argentina. It is a great alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Malbec is dry, fruity, and rich in taste with tobacco, plum, and chocolate notes. Goes perfect with red meat and grilled mushrooms. For more food and wine pairing ideas, check out this blog.
