Phillip Schofield's Festive Case

Phillip Schofield's Festive Case

Discover what Phillip Schofield will be drinking this Christmas
Case saving of £21 Offer ends 28/12/2017

Choosing Christmas drinks is the one decision I get to make at home that no one interferes with. I like to watch everyone’s faces as they taste, and when someone looks across the room and nods, and you know they’re saying ‘that was a good choice’.

Your Phillip Schofield's Festive Case contains....

3x Chiarli Vecchia Modena Pignoletto NV Spumante

Italy

Alc. vol 12%

This is lovely – refreshing and not too sweet, with an elegant smell of peaches and apples, a gorgeous fizz, and a hint of walnuts on the finish. Personally, I prefer something like this over one of the more affordable branded Champagnes – it’s got a lot more character.

2x Giesen Dillons Point Sauvignon Blanc

Marlborough New Zealand

Alc. vol 12.5%

New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc can be very, very green, with a soaring smell of gooseberries, but this is a little less ‘in your face’. It still has the greenness that is the attraction, but it’s tempered with a very discreet layer of tropical fruit that softens it down just a little bit.

2x Tabalí Encantado Reserva Viognier

Limari Valley, Chile

Alc. vol 13.5%

You can often pick Viognier out in a line-up because of its powerful nose of apricots – here there are subtle hints of apricot and pear, and in your mouth, it’s rich and full. What makes it attractive is that it’s not a Sauvignon Blanc or a Chardonnay, but a really exciting alternative

2x Sandiford Road Pinot Noir

California, USA

Alc. vol 14%

As soon as you put your nose into the glass, you get a burst of ripe berries, vanilla and a subtle hint of oak from this wine. There are no hard edges and it’s as elegant as a Pinot Noir should be, with depth of character and a creaminess that comes from the oak.

Match with

2x Climbing Shiraz

Orange, Australia

Alc. vol 13%

This is a bigger, bolder, spicier red, but don’t think that, because it’s Australian, it can’t be subtle. It doesn’t have the smack-you-in-the-face fruit you might expect. Instead, there’s a loamy earthiness and a subtlety to the rich plumminess – perfect with your cold cuts on Boxing Day.

Climbing Shiraz

Match with
gammon and bubble and squeak

1x Waitrose Reserve Tawny Port

Douro, Portugal

Alc. vol 20%

A fantastic drink all year round, port’s natural home is Christmas. This is absolutely the best quality you’ll find at this price level – warming and rich, with a chestnut roastiness and flavours of caramel and figs. Perfect to send you up to bed, celebrating a job well done.

Lab Lisboa

Match with
a cheeseboard
