CHRISTMAS PUDDING PAIRINGS
Ah, it is time for Christmas pudding! Dark, rich, delicious mixed fruit and brandy – what’s not to like? Can be difficult to pair because of the alcohol in the pudding, so port is your friend here, especially the bright red fruit and spicy character of Tawny. If your family is begging you for something other than the fruity pud’ how about the yuletide classic – Chocolate log? The freshness of white port would play nicely to the marzipan, but if your recipe omits it, the Tenuta Fanti Vin Santo would be perfect! If you are skipping the pudding all together and serving cheese like stilton, we highly recommend treating yourselves to Sauternes - wonderful palate-refreshing option, available in both half and full bottles.
