Wines selected by a Master of Wine
All the wines featured in our Christmas hampers have been specially selected by Waitrose Cellar Buyer, Xenia Irwin, Master of Wine.
With Xenia's expertise in selecting the very best wines for our discerning customers, there was no one better placed to work with our Hampers & Gifts Buyer to pick the perfect wines to complement the range of sweet and savoury foods packed into each of our hampers.
More about the selected wines
Poduced in a very fresh style totally unencumbered by oak, Chardonnay forms the base of the white blend, while the Muscat gives a uplifting, grapey tone, and the Viognier introduces peachy notes which last on this wine’s broad palate.
The smooth mellow Chilean blend of Carmenere and Shiraz is bursting with spicy berry-fruit aromas and has delicate hints of black pepper on the palate.
