Red or white with Christmas turkey?

Christmas is all about sharing great moments, particularly when it comes to dining with friends and family. Whilst the focus is often on the food, accompanying drinks can elevate an already special occasion into something wonderful.
But when it comes to wine, do you choose red or white for Christmas dinner? The answer is, well, both! Here are our top tips, including wines that we serve here at The Crown.

Red
Pinot Noir is widely argued to be the perfect red accompaniment to roast turkey. Whilst traditionally quite light, there are variations. For lighter, more delicate styles, try American pinot. For richer, fuller flavours, head to Chile or Argentina.

Want to impress? Try a 2011 Pinot Noir by Forrest Estate, New Zealand.
Brilliant budget? 2013 Vieilles Vignes (old vines) Merlot Reserve, France.

White
Chardonnay is the Pinot Noir of whites when it comes to pairing with Christmas turkey. Buttery, rounded textures pair wonderfully with poultry. Other whites which work well include good quality Pinot Grigio. For something different, you can’t go wrong with a German Riesling.

Want to impress? Try a 2011 Semillon Juniper Estate Chardonnay, Margaret River, Australia.
Brilliant budget? 2013 Pinot Grigio Tre Fili, Cantina San Marziano, Italy.

Please feel free to get in touch for any other Christmas party tips and suggestions. From all of us at The Crown, we wish you a wonderful festive season!
