The very best apéritif wines are marvellous without food but also lend themselves to nibbles or canapés. The Wine Show recommends you try Prosecco, Extra Dry, Fantinel, “Cuveé Prestige” from Italy. It has the inviting softness of Prosecco but in a wine with a serious, classy, dry character.
Pan-fried scallops, lobster, smoked salmon or prawn, if you’ve chosen to indulge in a light fish or salads to start, try some of Celebrity Cruises refreshing dry whites or their affordable Albariño, Raimat, “Castell de Raimat”, Costers del Segre, made in the hills inland from Barcelona and perfect with a fish friendly slice of lemon.
If you’ve decided to start with meat or game, then one of the Celebrity Cruises complex reds should set the right tone (and even carry you to main course). We recommend you try Celebrity Cruises, “Cellar Master”, California Cabernet Sauvignon. Our team of buyers and sommeliers have worked with the winemaking team to create the perfect wine to go with our richer dishes.
Pre Main Course Wine:
Rose is not just for summer, it’s extremely food friendly. Malbec, Chakana, “Yaguareté Collection”, Mendoza Rose makes a great starter to main course wine and is a great accompaniment any bird. This also goes great with the Risottos on the Celebrity Cruises menus.
Main Course Wines:
The bird – whether it be turkey or goose, this calls for reds that are light in tannis and have good acidity. We recommend a Mencia, Decendientes de Jose Palacios, “Petalos”, Bierzo – a wine that’s wowing the critics and perfect with Christmas dishes. If you’re going down the Beef Wellington, Lamb route we suggest Malbec from Amalaya in Salta, an Argentine producer that claims to have the highest vineyards in the world, towering in the Andes.
Pudding / After Dinner:
For the sweet-toothed amongst us, this is the wine highlight of the feast: a chance to indulge in nectar-like, luscious pudding wines. For all those that are far too full for a rich pudding, Furmint, Oremus, Tokaji is a great alternative. However, at some point in the evening something resembling hunger will return and tradition will call for some stilton. We recommend you try Tawny Port, Taylor “10 year old” to sort your hunger out.
