Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery‘s Lady In Red offers the palette warm oak spices with a finish of blackberry, cherry and plumb flavours. Aged in Hungarian oak barrels for 12 months and blended at the wine maker’s discretion at the end for the perfect balance, this wine is ideally served with a hearty beef or lamb dish.

Jillian pouring a glass of Sprucewood Shores' mulled wine made with Lady in Red

Steve at Sprucewood Shores has offered this mulled wine recipe which includes the Lady in Red:

  • 1 Orange
  • 20 cloves
  • 1 bottle of Lady in Red
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 100g (3 ½ oz.) sugar
  • 300ml (10 oz.) cranberry juice
  • 300ml (10 oz.) fresh orange juice

Stud the orange with the cloves. Put it in a saucepan with the wine and the remaining ingredients and heat the liquid until nearly boiling, then remove it from the heat (be careful not to let it boil). Let the wine stand for 1 to 2 hours so the flavours develop. When you are ready to serve, reheat the wine without boiling it and strain it into a glass. Serves 4 – 6
