Wine of the Week

(by peter)

A quick plug for a fantastic value wine which we would heartily advise stocking up on – the Ara Composite Sauvignon Blanc 2009 (£5.99 down from £9.99, Majestic).

Last week I was hunting out wines to recommend for Sat Bains’ poached salmon with brassicas and root veg on Saturday Kitchen.

A Sauvignon Blanc seemed the best way to go with this eclectic dish (which involved ‘cabbage ketchup’ – click here for my report and, for those brave enough, the recipe).

I tried a few but all were blown away by this punchy, tangy white which offers incredible value for money at this knock-down price.

For what it’s worth, Sat loved it with the dish, describing it variously as ‘fantastic’ and ‘brilliant’, adding very incisively that it, ‘reminded him of spring’.

So a perfect seasonal tipple at a very appetizing price.
