Summery Wines

5th May 2016

Long Lost Chardonnay Chenin Blanc ON OFFER £4.99/75cl (was £5.99, offer ends 15 May)
I’ve tasted this before and wanted to find something to match it with because it’s such a lovely wine. This pairing works beautifully – the wine is crisp enough to cut through the luscious velvety coating on your tongue from the egg, and the weight of the Chardonnay partners really well with the chorizo.

Drink it with...Potato salad with chorizo & duck egg
This needs a crisp white that won’t shy away from the rich creaminess and bold flavours.
Get the recipe in this week’s Waitrose Weekend, free to pick up from your local Waitrose.

Le Bijou de Sophie Valrose Cabrières Cuvée 20% OFF £6.79/75cl (was £8.49, offer ends 15 May)
This really pretty blush-coloured wine looks so elegant side by side with this week’s dish. It’s got a lovely appley peachiness to it, and enough edge to work with the rich, savoury duck egg.

Domaine de Buganay Rosé, Côtes de Provence 20% OFF £8.79/75cl
(was £10.99, offer ends 10 May)
Fuller flavoured than the typical Provençal rosé, with berry flavours and subtle spices.

Quinta de Azevedo Vinho Verde 20% OFF £6.63/75cl (was £8.29, offer ends 10 May)
Fresh and fruity, with citrus notes and a crisp, apple-peel character. Good on its own as well as with food.

Waitrose Viña Taboexa Albariño £7.99/75cl
Refreshingly crisp, this modern Spanish white has lovely floral notes and bags of fresh, zingy acidity.
