In the heat at this time of year we like to create simple seafood dishes. Light white wines with crisp minerality are the perfect company for some baked fish with new potatoes and salad. This mixed case highlights three different wines that work perfectly with seafood.
Poiron Dabin Vieille Vignes Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie 2016 – £10.99
This wine made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape spends around 14 months on its lees. This lees ageing gives the wine more body and texture. The wine is dry with bright citrus and apple notes and is an ideal aperitif. Available individually here.
Lembranzas Albariño Rias Baixas 2017 – £11.99
Lemon yellow in colour with hints of gold. Citrus fruit hits the nose followed by apple, pear and dried candied fruits with a mineral note. Full and plentiful on the palate, with fresh acidity from the pear and apple fruits and a lovely mineral finish. Available individually here.
Jean-Luc Colombo Les Girelles Picpoul De Pinet 2017 – £9.99
The wine has a rich but subtle nose, with fresh notes of white flowers. Nicely rounded and very fresh with notes of lemon and grapefruit. This makes it a great aperitif or match to fish, salads or mild creamy cheeses.
