From the Sommelier’s Notebook
Vouvray, Chateaux Moncontour 2017, Loire, France
This is a very refreshing old-school Chenin Blanc, pale lemon in colour with aromas of red apple and peach. On the palate, the wine has crisp citrus with some nutty, savoury notes contributing to the body, giving it the power to tackle chilli heat.
Tips – Creamy dishes work especially well.
Best Matches – Shingara – Quail breast – Sea bream – Monkfish tail – Chicken Chettinad – Chicken Lababdar – Dosa
Zibibbo, Curatolo Arini 2017, Sicily, Italy
Zibibbo (also known as Moscato d’Alessandria) produces an aromatic, dry white wine, bright straw yellow with golden-green highlights, Mediterranean perfumes of citrus, orange blossom, sage, mint, white rose and acacia, rich and elegant on the palate. The grapes come from a single vineyard near Marsala at 350 metres above sea level.
Tips – Dishes with fresh herbs and aromatic spices work beautifully with this wine, especially coriander and fennel.
Best matches – Sword fish tikka – Shingara – Beetroot cutlet – Quail breast – Chicken tikka – Kasundi prawns – Chicken biryani
Pinot Noir, Outer Limits by Montes 2016, Central Valley, Chile
Elegant, seductively floral, rich in minerality and complex on the nose with aromas of violets, cherries, raspberries, pepper and dried herbs. On the palate the wine is exuberant with bracing acidity, bright fruit, silky tannins and a lingering cherry finish, balanced by a mild toast ageing in French oak barrels (30% new) for 10-12 months.
Tips – As with all Pinot Noir, this works well with game and rustic flavours.
Best matches – Beetroot cutlet – Quail breast – Buffalo slider – Duck breast – Chicken biryani – Baby aubergines – Dosa – Chicken Lababdar
Morellino di Scansano, Antonio Camilo 2017, Tuscany, Italy
Morellino (“little cherries”) is the third and least known iteration of Tuscany’s Sangiovese appellations (the other two are Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino, both inland). Scansano is located in the coastal Maremma region and so this is very much a warm-climate expression of Sangiovese, with concentrated black and red cherries, crushed raspberry and white pepper with herbal lifts and velvety soft, ripe, juicy tannins.
Tips – Very versatile food wine which works well with warm Indian aromatic spices. The juicy cherry character of Sangiovese promotes game flavours such as duck and venison.
Best Matches – Chicken biryani – Duck breast – Baby aubergines – Dosa – Chicken Lababdar – Beetroot cutlet – Shingara – Quail breast
