Special whites for Easter

17th March 2016

Chateau Roquefort Roquefortissime Sauvignon 25% OFF £10.49/75cl (was £13.99)
I adore crisp Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire and the really green Sauvignons from New Zealand. Bordeaux Sauvignon is another wonderful expression of this grape, but very different. It still has the zestiness that’s perfect with fish, but it’s wrapped up in a butteriness that matches beautifully with this savoury risotto.

Drink it with... Baked salmon with risotto
Fragrant, buttery rice makes the perfect topping to keep baked salmon moist.

Arnaud de Lassalle Pouilly-Fumé SAVE 1/3 £9.99/75cl (was 14.99)
Another expression of Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire, arguably the home of Sauvignon Blanc in France. This is a really lovely mix of the crispness you’d expect with very light tropical flavours and pockets of sea salty air.

Astrolabe Discovery Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc 25% OFF £14.99/75cl (was £19.99)
Simon Waghorn’s Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has intense nettle, lime and basil flavours, with the Pouilly Fumé-like pungency typical of the Awatere Valley.

Chablis Les Armes 25% OFF £11.59/75cl (was £15.49)
An elegant Chablis in the traditional style, with balance and finesse. Lovely and creamy, with a light tropical touch to the fruit and chalky minerality.

La Monetta Gavi Del Comune Di Gavi 25% OFF £7.99/75cl (was £10.79)
This crisp, refreshing white from the Cortese grape has the classic Gavi flavours of citrus, almonds and fresh herbs. Great as an apéritif as well as with food.
