WineTrust’s Christmas Checklist: Gift Giving Made Easy

wine-gift-400x400

Here at WineTrust we meticulously select our fine-tuned, limited selection of wine, so we like to think our products are a little bit special. Over the years we have uncovered some real gems, which we all agree would make perfect gifts for the wine enthusiast.

Here is a sample of some of the brilliant wines and specially handpicked cases we have on offer – including a beautifully packaged Sweet Wine, a luxurious Champagne Gift Set and an excellent Vintage Port – and why they would make an ideal present for friends and family this Christmas.



SOMETHING SWEET: VIN DE CONSTANCE 2008

Vin de Constance with Gift BoxFor someone with a sweet-tooth, we are sure they will love the Vin de Constance 2008 from Klein Constantia. 

A brilliant story behind a beautiful bottle, this esteemed estate dates back to the 17th century, historically providing wine for the European Courts, sought by Napoleon during his exile and celebrated in the classic literature of Austen, Dickens and Baudelaire.

The producers have used the original 18th Century bottle shape, which we think looks stunning – delivered to you in a special giftbox. As for the wine, the rich but delicate balanced palette will suit a number of tastes, ideal with tart puddings (a classic tarte tatin for instance), aged and full bodied white cheeses or to simply sit back and appreciate this great wine on its own.

“…a meticulously crafted, profound, rare and utterly delicious world class wine” Neil Martin, Wine Advocate

CHAMPAGNE INDULGENCE: CHARLES HEIDSIECK BRUT RÉSERVE AND GLASSES GIFT SET

WineTrust’s champion Champagne, Charles Heidsieck’s Brut Réserve represents some of the finest non-vintage Champagne on the market. Packaged in a special giftbox with two Champagne flukes, this is a truly special gift to spoil someone with this Christmas.

Coffret Brut 2015 - ouvert

This stellar Champagne house prides itself on its obsessive attention to detail and focus on quality, with access to over 120 vineyards the wine making team can select from an unrivalled collection of reserve wines.

This blend consists of 40% reserve wines – held back from previous vintages – of up to 10 years of age, sourced from over 60 different vineyard sites. The specific mix of grape varieties is integral to the finished product, each varietal bringing in important elements: Chardonnay for its texture, floral notes and ageing ability; Pinot Noir for its power, vinosity and aromatics; and Pinot Meunier for its texture and red fruit character.

Charles Heidsieck extend the aging of all their Non Vintage Champagnes so they are ready to enjoy on release. Enjoy now and over the next 12 months.

A CHRISTMAS CLASSIC: QUINTA DE VARGELLAS 2001

Taylor Vargellas 2001 wooden boxA real indulgence from one of Port’s biggest and oldest names, Taylor’s Quinta de Vargellas 2001 is a wonderful present for any lover of Port.

Founded in 1692, Taylor’s is one of the great icons of Port production and has access to some of the best vineyards in the Douro region – including Quinta de Vargellas, the eminent estate from which this Vintage Port originates.

Taylor’s Quinta de Vargellas 2001 Port is a fantastic offering, with an exotic array of fruit, liquorice and spice, beautiful concentration and structure and a smooth, satiny texture that brings elegance to its powerful taste.

Pair, classically, with a full flavoured cheese board selection, served with walnut bread and quince jelly. Equally enjoy on its own and sip into the evening. Just approaching its peak now, but will mature well for at least another 10 years.
