Meet the lovely (and formidable) Jo Gear — one of the head wine makers at New Zealand Wine Society. We do love a glass of wine here at JUK, and over the last few weeks Jo has taught us more than a thing or two. We decided to cook up a JUK Christmas Hamper for her so she could create some amazing wine matches especially for you, come Christmas.
And the best news? They will be delivered to your door the week before Christmas! So you needn't lift a finger this December!
First up is the Celebration Box
The Celebrate box is a gorgeous 6-pack of bubbles that contains two bottles each of the Hawkesbridge Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle, the Domaine Chandon NV and the La Gioisa Et Amorosa Prosecco Doc Treviso NV. This mix is going home with me for Christmas!
$149 for a 6 bottle case
Second up — The Taste of Summer
Our Summer case is a 6-pack of 3 different Rosés, two of each blend, The Gibbston Highgate Estate Lovemaker Central Otago Rosé, Lobster Reef Marlborough Rosé 2018 and Marquis De Goulaine Rose D'anjou 2017 — to keep the family happy over Christmas lunch. We can't resist a rosé or two in the JUK HQ.
$99 for a 6 bottle case
And there's something for everyone in the Mixed Case
The Wine Society mixed case contains Hawkesbridge Marlborough Methode Traditionnelle 2015, Hawkesbridge Reserve Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2018, The Sounds Marlborough Chardonnay 2017, Gibbston Highgate Estate Lovemaker Central Otago Rosé, Freeland Centra l Otago Pinot Noir 2017, Mockingbird Hill Slate Lane Clare Valley Shiraz 2016. As well as being a great range of celebratory wines for Christmas, these particular varieties have been chosen by Jo to pair perfectly with our Festive Feast.
