With a long history dating back to the Ancient Greeks and Romans, mulled wine is a staple in colder climates, particularly during the festive season. This delicious warm, spiced wine is alcohol-free and perfect to make as a batch for parties and winter get-togethers. Using high-quality grapes sourced from premium vineyards in South Australia, the red wines from Plus and Minus are vibrant and serve a great base for the mix. Distinctive spices build depth and flavour, and the honey or maple adds a lovely sweetness. Serve warm and garnish with orange wheels and cinnamon for the traditional festive look.
INGREDIENTS1x bottle of Plus and Minus Pinot Noir or Shiraz
3x star anise
1x 1/4 cup of honey or maple syrup! (we used maple!)
2x cinnamon sticks
6x whole cloves
1x orange, cut into slices for garnishing and finishing flavours!
- Place all the ingredients into a saucepan and bring to simmer (not boil, as the aromatics will dissipate). Leave on very low heat for 10 minutes!
- Serve with orange slices and your favourite garnish (cinnamon for us)
