Wondering which drink to pair with your meal? Ocado has the perfect wine or fizz to complement your dishes whether it's dinner, dessert or the cheese course.
For Christmas dinner and all the trimmings - Château Bru Lagardette Cahors 75cl
The south-west of France, where this Château Bru Lagardette Cahors comes from, is famous for dark reds that are full of character – such as Malbecs. This one is a guaranteed favourite, and its intensity and rich damson flavours mean it’s perfect with a classic roast turkey and cranberry sauce, or even a tender rack of lamb or roast beef.
For your pre-party cocktails - Abbazia Fiorino Prosecco d.o.c. 75cl
This fruity prosecco has hints of apple and ripe peach, making it a great base for festive cocktails – both before and after dinner. But it’s also wonderful when enjoyed on its own, as it’s smoother than champagne. Serve a chilled glass of this crisp and light prosecco as your guests arrive.
For something special - Perrier Jouet Grand Brut Champagne NV 75cl
Want to impress your guests? This Grand Brut is delicate, elegant and balanced. If you’re after bubbles that are both striking and soft, this unique, multi-award-winning champagne should be your first choice.
For seafood dishes - The Ned Sauvignon Blanc 75cl
If you’re planning to serve a fish or seafood menu and want the perfect wine to pair it with, then look no further than this lovely Malborough. It’s startlingly fresh with vibrant notes of lime and lemongrass which soften to juicy grapefruit.
For a cheese platter - DGS Dried Grape Shiraz The Review 75cl
This wine is actually so good, it’s perfect on its own at any time. However, if you’re enjoying a cheeseboard after dinner, then it’s a fantastic option. The rich aromas of spiced plums and dark cherries follow onto the palate with notes of chocolate and subtle vanilla. Partner it with a salty blue cheese such as Roquefort and your dinner guests will be blown away.
For dessert - Dulong Reserve Sauternes 50cl
The nectar of wines, a good Sauternes is a must when it comes to pudding. This one offers a luscious, sweet flavour, combining the richness of acacia blossom and honey. Like the Shiraz, it’s fabulous with cheese, but it tastes even better with profiteroles.
