On Christmas Day my wine rack gave to me a magnum sized bottle of GH Mumm

Presents. Food. Wine. Wine. Wine..

The final wine in the advent wine calendar is a bottle of GH Mumm. The equivalent of 2 bottles, the magnum sized bottle provides enough bubbles to have with Christmas dinner, and then some.

I wonder what’s inside?!

25 days of wine – a Christmas calendar of wine. Day 1

Ahh the month of Christmas. When this time comes around, the countdown to when the big man in the big red suit arrives is on!!!

Hellooooo Santa!

To help with this countdown, an advent calendar is a great way to tell you what day of December it is.
Typically these calendars are filled with chocolate – But why do chocolate when you can do wine?! Hello 25 bottles of wine!
To help you out, I’ll be posting my choice bottle of wines each day in the lead up to Christmas. Hopefully it will help make the Christmas season a very jolly and merry one for you!

To help kick it off, I suggest easing in to a nice bottle of Cosmo Wines’ 2014 Shiraz.

Winemaker Lindsay Corby makes the wine in Preston (Melbourne, Australia), using grapes from all over Victoria. This particular Shiraz comes from the Yarra Valley. A really nice, smooth, and satisfying Shiraz that will leave you feeling like you’re in Shiraz heaven. All the classic feels of a Shiraz, with berry notes, subtle oak, topped off with a dry finish. I hope you enjoy this first wine on the first day of December.tipthebottle.jpg

“New French oak gives spicy notes and fine tannins that complement the dark fruit cake aromas and flavours provided by the ripe fruit used to make this wine. Match with spicy and full flavoured meat dishes.” http://www.cosmowines.com.au

Until next time winos,

Cheers
