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.

Salmon sensation

Olly’s wine pairing: MiP Classic Rosé Made In Provence 2021 (12.5%) £15.50,

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,

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.

Chicken champion

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.
