A Guide to the Perfect Christmas Wines

Christmas time is a special time of year: while the rest of the world freezes through the holiday season, in Australia we enjoy the sun, surf and sand.


At Kay Brothers, we have a wine that will match your Christmas lunch, whether you have a traditional Christmas fare of ham and turkey, or your own ‘Australian’ Christmas seafood feast.


2018 Grenache Rose

Our 2018 Grenache Rose is a perfect addition to every Christmas table, encompassing everything an Australian Christmas stands for: light, fun and delicious. With a palate of berry fruits, mandarin, and nicely textured with a touch of spice, this Rose is perfect for every adult at the table, from a long-time red wine enthusiast, to those newly venturing into the red wine family.


The perfect wine if seafood is on the menu (especially prawns!) on Christmas Day, the 2018 Grenache Rose has vibrant aromas of strawberries, rose petals and lime zest that will carry you through the remaining summer months. 



2017 Reserve Nero d’Avola

Another great introduction to the red wine family, our 2017 Reserve Nero d’Avola is a beautiful wine, with a delicate structure that will ensure its popularity at the Christmas table. With lively flavours of strawberry compote, rhubarb and sour cherry, this wine is fresh, juicy and aromatic, and will be the perfect pairing to your Christmas ham or turkey - dont be afraid to even pop this light red on ice and drink it a little cooler if the weather calls for it.


If you have a traditional Christmas lunch with all the trimmings planned, our 2017 Reserve Nero d’Avola will be the addition to the table that will have your guests singing your praises for Christmases to come.



2017 Griffon’s Key Grenache

Our 2017 Griffon’s Key Grenache is popular year-round, but should definitely have a spot in your Christmas wine rack. This top drop is a pleasure to drink, with alluring aromas of rose petal and dark cherry to bring back memories of Christmas’ past. With concentrated fruit flavours of strawberry, raspberries and dark cherries, this Grenache is another perfect accompaniment to your Christmas ham.



Rare Muscat

As the main course finishes, it’s time to bring out the Christmas pudding (or cheese platter). And no pudding is complete without a matching drink. Our Rare Muscat is the perfect complement to any Christmas pudding, thanks to its intense palate of raisined fruit, notes of burnt toffee, and caramelised figs. With an average age of 22 years, this fortified wine is considered one of the best in the region, and will be a welcome addition to the final moments of your Christmas meal.
