CHRISTMAS TIME, MISTLETOE AND GREAT ALDI WINE!

Christmas is all about eating, drinking and being merry. Whether it is a gift or an pairing for a delicious dinner, now is the time to step things up a notch and opt for something extra special. That’s where Aldi’s brand-new Winemaster’s Lot range comes in. Each wine has its own ‘X Factor’ – these aren’t just everyday wines. From big blockbusting reds to high altitude whites, this is Aldi’s top-tier range of the best Christmas wines yet.

The secret to Rudolph’s red nose

Aldi’s Châteauneuf-du-Pape (£19.99, 75cl) is a corker that is sure to tantalise tastebuds this Christmas. Full bodied and complex, this red boasts delicious rich flavours of spice, red and black fruits, leaving a well-balanced and elegant finish. It’s a powerful wine and a perfect representation of the rolled pebbles terroir in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Ideal with a Christmas roast or a classic cheese board. We’d recommend a large glass for serving! On sale 8th November.

A big celebration calls for an equally bold wine! Aldi’s Amarone Della Valpolicella (£19.99, 75cl) is one of the most ancient Italian wines, produced using the “Appassimento” method. Grapes are left to dry from September to January and then are vinified and aged in oak barrels and casks for 30 months. This drying process gives sour cherry, raspberry, and red berry notes. On sale 8th November.

Equally as bold is Aldi’s brand-new Barbaresco (£17.99, 75cl) – this holiday-worthy bottle boasts both intensity and elegance, the perfect party food accompaniment. Available online only.

Dreaming of a white Christmas

Made with 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes, Aldi’s Pouilly Fumé (£14.99, 75cl) is a complex, concentrated and citrussy tipple. Well balanced with an elegant and fruity finish – it’s sure to be a Christmas hit. Dominated by flavours of tropical pineapple, peach, and mango, balanced by an elegant acidity and subtle smoky flavours. Try it with seafood or goat’s cheese. On sale 8th November.

Keeping it classic? Aldi’s delectable new Sancerre (£12.99, 75cl) offers freshness and balanced acidity. It is a rich and elegant Sancerre with finesse, complexity, and depth. Full of ripe fruit, citrus and spice with a balanced acidity and a fresh, long finish. Enjoy it alongside Aldi’s exquisite cheese selection. It also makes for a perfect ‘thank you for inviting me to your Christmas party’ gift too! On sale 29th November.

Aldi’s Vacqueyras Blanc (£9.99, 75cl) is a crisp white wine with delicate notes of white flowers, brioche, and white currant. A mineral palate with ripe apple paired with a crisp acidity results in a lovely freshness. It is also aged for nine months in oak barrels making this bold, vibrant white a festive winner. This mouth-watering wine will pair beautifully with white meat such as turkey, or French cheese. On sale 6th December.

For a refreshing white, shoppers should opt for Aldi’s Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (£9.99, 75cl). Fantastic to serve ahead of the big feast with a smoked salmon starter. On sale 8th November.

As Rosé as Santa’s merry cheeks

Yes, you should pour rosé with Christmas dinner. Aldi’s Côtes de Provence Rosé (£7.99, 75cl) is a sensational blend. It delivers delicate yet intense flavours, ideal for lightening up the Christmas meal thanks to its fruity finish, creamy taste with clear minerality and a subtle quartzy spice. With delicate red fruit aromas, it’s a breath of summer in the depth of winter. On sale 8th November.

A little Christmas sparkle

For those really special Christmas moments, pop a bottle of Aldi’s new three years aged Premium English Sparkling (£19.99, 75cl). Carefully selected from a top English vineyard and being highly regarded in prestigious international awards, Christmas as good a time as any to celebrate a perfectly British bubbly.
