Team these lovely drops with your festive feast
Classic feast WITH ROASTS AND FRUIT CAKE
RED MCW 660 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Don’t be afraid of bolder reds in summer – they can pay off in spades. This menu suits this medium-bodied cab sav down to the ground! Lashings of silky cassis and blood plum flavours will bring to life the proteins, while the spice and dark chocolate will reward generously with the fruit elements and richer aspects of the meal.
WHITE MCW 660 Reserve Chardonnay The most versatile grape in the vineyard is also an all-rounder at your table! This chardonnay is a cool-climate style, so the bright citrus and peach flavours are perfect to cut through the richness in the meal while celebrating the elegance of the white meats. PS, to get the best out of this wine, take it out of the fridge 20 minutes before serving.
Vegetarian feast WITH A TOUCH OF VEGAN
RED MCW 480 Shiraz This yoghurt-dominant menu needs a red wine with bright acid to cut through the cream and elevate the dishes. This elegant cool-climate shiraz will bring its moreish dark fruit and hints of pepper spice to play really well with the earthy style dishes, while not being overwhelmed. The medium-body style is perfect for a summer day when slightly chilled.
WHITE MCW 480 Sauvignon Blanc
A great summer option for this meat-free menu, the herbaceous notes of this sav blanc work really well with the rootvegetable elements in the dishes, while the lively tropical fruit flavours will make the fresh summer produce sing!
Seafood feast WITH A TROPICAL TWIST
RED MCW Alternis Tempranillo The elegance and medium-bodied style of this Spanish native will make the plum and prosciutto in the menu offer a great depth of flavour with its palate of blackcurrant, pomegranate and dark cherry. This juicy and vibrant wine is young and fresh without overwhelming the delicate seafood in the menu line-up. A real stunner served chilled.
WHITE MCW Alternis Vermentino This is the ultimate seafood wine! Vibrant and minerally, this wine will play really well with the citrus in the dishes and cut through the richer elements of the trifle for a refreshing finish.
