This month, it’s Joe who introduces his summer favourite: St Auriol Chardonnay, a straw-coloured, subtle wine which works a treat with summer dining.
Joe backs the St Auriol Chardonnay from Languedoc for the ultimate alfresco evening, and teams it with our Milk-fed Veal, Glazed Hams or Charcuterie.
There’s always an expectation with Chardonnay but we were all surprised by this dry, subtle little beauty at our team wine tasting event. This wine is aged with oak staves which really develops the character. Or as Joe describes it – ‘it’s just an absolute belter; really crisp and apple-y. You wouldn’t think it cost less than 12 quid would you?’
This wine really comes alive with our Charcuterie and Nibbles. Joe recommends pairing it with a Sharer Board for the ultimate in easy, convivial summer fun with pals.
