Mulled wine and other Christmas wines

Mulled wine is a holiday beverage usually made with red wine along with various mulling spices and served hot or warm. You could call it Christmas in a glass. It is really simple to make, so let us show you how.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Bottle of dry Red Wine: Definitely nothing expensive, since the mulling spices and citrus will be the dominant flavours.
  • 8 slices of Citrus: Oranges, but feel free to add lemons for color.
  • 2 Cinnamon sticks: You could use the whole sticks or whisk in some ground cinnamon.
  • Other spices: 2-3 Cloves and star anise are the best choice.
  • Sweetener: Add 3-4 spoons of your favorite sweetener to taste – sugar, maple syrup or honey.
  • Extra liqueur: Similar to sangria, it’s also traditional to spike your mulled wine with an extra bit of liqueur, if you’d like.  You can add 1/4 cup brandy or skip this step too.

Combine all your ingredients and simmer in a pot but make sure it does not boil. You must simmer for at least 15 minutes, or up to 3 hours, so that all the delicious flavors can come together.  Then strain out the spices, and serve warm.

Also, have a look at the Top 50 wines of 2018. Presenting, the Top 3.

  1. Mayacamas Vineyards’ 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a graceful return from an iconic Napa winery. Very light oak influence allows the elevated, sun-soaked terroir of Mount Veeder to shine. Acidity is bright, and the wine has tart, juicy black fruits. Herbs and black licorice add nuance, while chewy tannins persist in a lingering finish, which is rich in stony mineral notes.
  2. Hermann J. Wiemer HJW Vineyard Riesling 2016 is made from grapes from the HJW vineyard, whose aged vines benefit from the moderating effects of nearby Seneca Lake. The site’s elevation also provides a cool, prolonged growing season, meaning grapes mature with intensity and finesse and maintain fresh fruit flavors and bracing acidity. This bottle has green apple, white peach, and lemon notes, followed by a lasting, crisp finish. Dry, age-worthy, and absolutely delicious, this is the most stunning Riesling currently being made in America.
  3. Viña Vik’s flagship Millahue blend contains Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from three different vine clones, planted across three plots. Smaller quantities of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, and Carménère complete the wine. The 2013 vintage more than delivers, with dark berry aromas, followed by dried herbs and floral notes. Bright and energetic on the palate, with spicy tannins, this is a polished wine capable of aging. It is South America’s best wine.
