The Healthy Bikers!
In this week’s WEEKEND magazine, Olly pairs the drinks for nutritious, healthy dishes for Si King and Dave Myers’ new recipe book.
Olly’s wine pairing: MiP Classic Rosé Made In Provence 2021 (12.5%) £15.50, leaandsandeman.co.uk
One of the scrummiest rosés on the market and well worth splashing out on. It’s gorgeous with the Hairy Bikers’ Miso Salmon, as well as being a dazzling aperitif.
Luscious with lamb
Olly’s wine pairing: Rui Madeira ‘Altos da Beira’, Terras da Beira 2021 (13.5%) £8.75, thewinesociety.com
The tremendous quality here is a testament to modern Portuguese winemaking. Divine with lamb thanks to its fragrant spice, this red punches far above its price.
Super with sauces
Olly’s wine pairing: Arbousset Tavel Rosé 2021 (13.5%) £12, Tesco
Dark rosé deserves to be celebrated! Deep and delicious, this is awesome with savoury tomato sauces – try serving it cold in large wine glasses to fully unleash its depth.
Olly’s wine pairing: Specially Selected Coteaux de Béziers Viognier Grenache 2022 (13%) £6.99, Aldi
A blend like no other, with the fruitiness of peaches and subtle scent of a rose. This southern French white is scrumptious with chicken, and great value.
Best for burgers
Olly’s wine pairing: Porcupine Ridge Syrah 2021 (14.5%) £8.49, Waitrose
This bold, juicy red from a top South African winery is the best friend of all burgers. It’s a real steal at the offer price.
