We’re making a list, checking it twice… and have curated the perfect wine list for Christmas.
Christmas Eve Drinks
Pop the bubbly and get the party started with La Maschera Prosecco. This is a classic dry Prosecco with a modern Australian twist - light, fresh and sparkling for a perfect aperitif.
Continue the celebrations with Jansz Tasmania Premium Rosé crafted from the very best Tasmanian vineyards. A vibrant yet delicate wine created for enjoyment and refreshment. The limited-edition label artwork has been created in collaboration with Tasmanian Artist Daniel Gray-Barnett.
As you graze away, enjoy this juicy, vibrant Grenache. Running with Bulls Garnacha is wild fermented with whole bunch fruit for texture, spice and intense aroma. Unoaked for freshness and fruit purity, allowing cherry and rhubarb flavours to shine on the palate. Drinks beautifully chilled on a hot day.
Treat yourself with a breakfast sparkling to start your day. Jansz Tasmania Vintage Cuvée is made from the best hand-picked fruit from our vineyard. Select barrel fermentation and four years of lees ageing provides this wine with the complexity, creaminess and sophistication that have become the trademark of Jansz Tasmania. Try with truffled scrambled eggs with grilled shitake, wood ear and oyster mushrooms.
A traditional Christmas lunch should always start with a Pewsey Vale Vineyard Estate Riesling. It hails from the first Riesling vineyard planted in Eden Valley more than 175 years ago. Consistent in flavour and quality from vintage to vintage. Flavourful and refreshing with an approachable, soft natural acidity iconic to Eden Valley. Delightful with seafood and fresh salads.
Elevate the occasion with a wine from our Dalrymple Vineyards Single Sites collection. These small batch wines each have a story to tell, with grapes harvested from different parts of Tasmania. Our Coal River Valley Pinot Noir comes from a vineyard with plentiful sunshine, low rainfall and drying winds which results in a wine with bright blue fruit flavours, soft tannin and bright acidity. This Pinot Noir is like a well-tailored suit that fits in all the right places. A wonderful accompaniment to roast Turkey, seasonal vegetables and truffles.
Pondering the perfect gift? The Jansz Tasmania Single Vineyard Vintage Chardonnay is an exceptional and rare wine, made in a Blanc de Blanc style. Bottled in clear glass and packaged in a distinct, luxurious cylinder, each bottle is a celebration of this noble variety. This is a limited release that is destined to be remembered long after it has been enjoyed.
Rosé the day away
Light-heartedly referred to as "lunch water" amongst its friends, Rogers & Rufus is the perfect accompaniment to a long Christmas lunch and afternoon by the pool. A dry and savoury Rosé made from Barossa Grenache. The wine displays a pleasing light cherry blossom colour, fine pomegranate and lavender aromas and a dry mineral palate with a touch of saltiness and lingering finish.
