Denbies winemaker Marcus Sharp offers some Surrey Christmas dinner menu-matching wine suggestions


The Christmas wine list:


Celebration opener: Denbies Greenfields - bottle fermented in the traditional manner from the three great sparkling grapes, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.

Starter (smoked trout): Denbies Rose Hill - Waitrose Rose Trophy Winner - delicately fruity, refreshing off dry rose, perfect to drink with fish

Main (Turkey with seasonal veg): Denbies Redlands - a rich smooth red blend, crimson coloured from the Dornfelder grape and characteristically berry flavoured from Pinot Noir

Christmas Cake: Denbies Whitedowns Sparkling wine - a great fizz, crisp, clean and refreshing

Cheese (Norbury Blue): Denbies Ortega - a fine and complex wine with guava and melon characteristics and a subtle aspect of oak

Good all-rounder: Surrey Gold suits most palates and has been the best selling English white wine for many years.
