What wines did we taste?
Cottonworth Classic Cuvée, England
Multi-award winning English fizz from Hugh Lidell in Hampshire. This bubbly is one for the connoisseurs. Green apple mousse with zippy grapefruit citrus and a buttery finish. Buy wine.
Kabola Organic Vrhunsko Malvasija, Croatia
An organic white wine from a family vineyard in Istria, Croatia. This herby and rounded white wine is a great food partner. Full of mouth-watering tropical fruit and herbaceous undertones. Buy wine.
Kardos Dry Furmint, Hungary
A classic dry white single varietal wine from the volcanic terroir of Tokaj. Made by Gabor Kardos, this is a fab introduction to Hungarian wine. Beautifully balanced! Buy wine.
Dunleavy Vineyards Pinot Noir Rosé, England
One of Bristol's best wine-makers, Ingrid Bates specialises specifically in rosé. It's dry but bursting with strawberries and cream. The balance and acidity make it a lovely match with sweet and sour Chinese cuisine. Buy wine.
Monsoon Valley Podkum Shiraz, Thailand
This wonderfully fruity number from Prachuaap Khiri Khan in Thailand is full of plummy ripe fruit. It's a great choice with sausage rolls thanks to the hint of sweetness in the wine but if you want a classier pairing drink it with Thai pan-fried duck and a soy sauce. Buy wine.
