|GREAT match with winter's plum puddings
and rich fruit cakes, and for these delights once
again come the Festive Christmas Season.
FORTIFY YOURSELF THESE WINTER NIGHTS
IF you love your plum puddings and rich fruit cakes, and all the more so on these cool to chilly nights, a great wine to match them up with is a very more-ish Fortified Durif under the Three Bridges label from Calabria Family Wines in the NSW Riverina.
And being so wonderfully full bodied, rich and big, we'll bet you'll be quick to realise that this is a drop to start thinking about for another time too… December and these Christmassy delights all over again.
With 18% alcohol by volume this is a sipping wine that by enjoying slowly you'll really appreciate it's delightfully rich and intense palate of dark berries, balanced tannin and beautifully silky smooth finish. And on pouring, savour it's equally enticing aromas of lush berry fruits and elegant brandy spirit.
At $40 the currently available 2013 Calabria Family Wines Three Bridges Fortified Durif is ready for enjoyment now – then come Christmas, too – or it can be bought and put away for anything up to 40 years.
