Festive Gift Guide

Mixed packs for the festive season

By Halliday Promotion

At some point in the party season, you’ll need to cater to a range of flavours on the table and drinking preferences in the crowd, so it's a smart idea to cover all your bases and buy a diverse selection of wines. Be inspired by the stellar mix of sparkling, white and red wines here.

Festive mixed packs of wine
1. 2016 Sharmans Riesling, $25
This is a dry-style riesling with a nose of tropical fruit and a hint of spice, and a rich, full palate of jasmine and clove with a crisp, citrus backbone. Pair this with Tasmanian oysters this season.

2. 2015 Sharmans Chardonnay, $35
Ripe melon and macadamia on the nose lead to a palate of luscious grapefruit, creamy oatmeal and soft toastiness with an elegant citrus finish. For the ultimate festive food match, serve this with Tasmanian rock lobster.

3. 2015 Sharmans Pinot Noir, $35
Intense aromas of raspberries and red cherries hint of a complex palate of ripe red fruit, toasted oak, chocolate and crushed cinnamon. It is a light- to medium-weighted wine with velvety tannins. Enjoy this pinot noir with a garlic and thyme-roasted chicken.
