If you’re struggling with gift ideas for those that are hard to buy for, I feel like you can’t go wrong with food and drink gifts. You can choose their favourite tipple, or treat and know they’ll be able to enjoy it over the festive period. I also think gifts like wine are handy for any last minute gifts you need to buy, or an extra to finish off a person’s gifts as you can pick them up at your local supermarket. I have a Calvet wine gift guide for you today with two wines which would be good for gifts, but also good for enjoying yourself if you are a wine fan at any time of year.
The first wine within my Calvet wine gift guide is the Calvert Menetou-Salon Sauvignon Blanc 2018 12.5% ABV which is available to purchase from Waitrose online and instore and is £14.99.
“A fresh Menetou-Salon fully expressing the minerality of the unique Kimmeridgian limestone soils on which the vines are planted. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, with ageing on the fine lees. Pale yellow with green highlights, the nose has hints of blackcurrant boxwood and green citrus fruits. On the palate there is the trademark minerality of the appellation, with citrus and smokey notes and a fresh finish.”
The second wine in my Calvet wine gift guide is one for the fans of red wine, and is the Calvet Réserve Bordeaux Red 2016 13.5% ABV and is also available to purchase at Waitrose both online and instore, and is £9.39.
“A mix of 70% Merlot 30% and Cabernet Sauvignon, Calvet’s leading brand of claret is made by a dynamic young winemaker in a modern style with unmistakable Bordeaux character. Full-bodied with silky tannins and notes of gingerbread, caramel and black pepper. Delicious paired with aromatic soft cheeses like Camembert and Goats cheeses. Vegetarian and vegan.”
You can find other Calvet wines over on the Waitrose website.
