About the Wines
Takeaway: Fish & Chips
Wine: Crémant de Bourgogne, Domaine Bersan NV
Sparkling wine with fish & chips is one of the absolute best food and wine pairings, and a real trade favourite. This Crémant is made organically from Chablis grapes with very low sulphites, and has great minerality and acidity which wonderfully cuts through the richness of the batter and balances the fish. What better way to start the weekend?
Takeaway: Vietnamese Pho
Wine: Riesling Trocken, Weingut Schwarztrauber 2018
This German Riesling from Pfalz has just a touch of ripeness in perfect harmony with it’s natural zest. This results in a superbly versatile wine for matching all kinds of South-East Asian cuisine, especially with its ability to cope with a moderate amount of chilli. Vietnamese Pho is a cracking pairing on account of it’s rich broth, but don’t let us stop you from ordering dim sum!
Wine: Rosat, Herència Altés 2019
With the amazing weather we are about to have this coming weekend, you might be after a lighter, healthier delivery of sushi. In which case this organic dry rosé, from Terra Alta in the south of Catalunya, provides a great balance; it is crisp enough to let delicate white fish show through, while the wild strawberry-fruited core will also sit beautifully with tuna and salmon.
Wine: Bukettraube, Cederberg Private Cellar 2019
Bukettraube is an extremely rare varietal of which there exists only 77 hectares around the world, mostly in South Africa. Spice is notoriously difficult to find a good wine match for, so as long as you are not ordering the Vindaloo, the natural delicate honeyed character and concentrated apricot fruit should go perfectly with any curry. Not to mention the bhaji…
Wine: Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 4 20, Torri Cantine 2019
Incredibly approachable organic Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, smooth on the palate, with a dark cherry core and a savoury black olive finish. No points for guessing the obligatory pizza topping here, a classic Napoli would work perfectly. Why stop at pizza? Crack this open with any tomato-based pasta delivery.
Takeaway: A humble hamburger
Wine: Old Vine Zinfandel, Gnarly Head 2018
If ordering the classic hamburger, then nothing is more ‘Americana’ than a big Zinfandel. Full in body, alcohol, flavour, fruit, it doesn’t matter how you choose to dress your burger, the Gnarly Head will more than match it.
