This Week We're Drinking...

14TH - 20TH DECEMBER 2020

With the festive season upon us, our hand-picked Seasonal Selection is a chance for you to discover something new to drink this Christmas, and learn more about some traditional favourites too.

 

Each week we’ll profile a different bottle from our Seasonal Selection, and as we expect you to be enjoying your wine alongside something delicious to eat, we’ll let you know the perfect food pairings to enjoy alongside too.

Fortnum's Crozes Hermitage, Domaine Fayolle 

This supremely elegant Crozes Hermitage is made from grapes from 40-year-old vines by Laurent Fayolle. Family owned and run by a brother and sister team, Domaine Fayolle has gained many accolades with every vintage from their 12 hectare estate.

 

Made from Syrah grapes, this wine is a stunning combination of black cherry fruit with peppery spice and a beautiful depth of flavour. A gloriously festive addition to your feasting table.

Glenarm Salt-Aged Rib of Beef

 

Exclusively available at Fortnum's, this superb beef is hand-selected from the Glenarm Estate in Northern Ireland and then dry-aged for 28-42 days in the producer's authentic Himalayan salt chamber, the first in Europe. The bold notes of this wine pair beautifully with this succulent beef. 

 

 

Free Range Goose

 

This magnificent bird comes from Worcestershire and roams freely in vast acres of hilly green paddocks, allowing them to feed on nutrient-rich grass which forms a major part of their diet. Their feed is supplemented with grain grown on the farm, the result of which is a well-proportioned, superbly tender goose with plenty of flavour.
