The results of this poll were quite surprising to me. I thought Champagne would do better. But then, my readership is quite sophisticated, and clearly is tasting exciting wines, mainly great reds over Christmas. This was no doubt also helped by the cool weather in large parts of Australia. And half my readership is in the Northern Hemisphere, where the weather at Christmas is chilly, anyway.
Pinot Noir was the most favorite drink, demonstrating the enormous improvements that have been achieved with this variety.
Normally, I am quite good with picking categories, but this time, the 'other' category was ticked a fair bit. I would be interested which wines fell into these categories. I would appreciate if you left me a brief comment. And generally, which were your favorite Christmas drinks?
