A blueberry in its pomp! This sun-soaked Californian red is sleek and bold, deeply fruity and utterly divine with Tess’s Tremendous Turkey Burgers.
Bouncing banana pancakes
Olly’s wine pairing: Downsview Estate Heron’s Ghyll (11.5%) £29,
This quality crafted Sussex fizz is heaped with sherbet vibrancy to pair with Bouncing Banana Pancakes. Local bubbly brilliance that will lift your day.
Sizzling sweet and sour stir-fry
Olly’s wine pairing: Tesco Finest Prosecco Rosé DOC 2021 (11.5%) £8.50
Fizz always pairs well with informal dishes, and rosé prosecco is fruity enough to handle the sumptuous spice in the Sizzling Sweet And Sour Stir-Fry.
Terrific with tuna
Olly’s wine pairing: Prima Luna Frascati DOC 2021 (12.5%) £5.75, Tesco
This is a light citrus dream of a wine, which is terrific value for a kitchen table white and easy drinking alongside the tasty Marinated Tuna With Mango And Pineapple Salsa.
Scrumptious peach and almond crumble
Olly’s wine pairing: Cipriani Virgin Bellini (180ml, 0%) £12 for 4 bottles, sacla.co.uk
Hands down the best non-alcoholic Bellini I’ve ever tasted and a sparkling delight to serve from the fridge alongside the Scrumptious Peach And Almond Crumble.
