Dhall & Nash's Top 30 Festive Wines of 2021

2021 has been a big one for everyone and we’re sure ready to ‘wine-down’ for the year! To send you off into the festive season and celebrate the best way we know how, we’ve got the wine-lovers ULTIMATE Top 30 Picks for the 2021 Christmas and beyond!

At the beginning of November, every Dhall & Nash team member was asked to ‘cast their nominations’ for the ultimate D&N Top 30. (Some could say it was an internal vinous Oscars-type affair…) They all scoured our portfolios and picked out their absolute favourite tipples and submitted them for final judgement. The numbers were tallied, and the results were in! We narrowed down over 880 products, to 166 nominations, to the final Top 30!

Dhall & Nash’s Top Staff Picks

While many of our wines received a nomination or two, there were a number of wines that received a ‘full sweep’ or near – meaning all team members included this wine in their personal nomination lineup. This really tells us something, as our team has broad and varied tastes, and the following drops have come highly recommended across the whole board!

Wine Category Champions

It can be tricky to pin wines against each other when they represent such different styles. Apples and oranges – chalk and cheese – jammy zinfandel and saline chardonnay. We’ve broken down our Top 30 into categories – Reds, Whites, Pinks, Sparkling and Fortified. For each of these, a champion has been crowned. It is the wine which is the ultimate indulgence within each style and is sure to blow you away!
