It’s that time of year again… The Wimbledon Tounament is fast approaching; and the weather in truly British style, does not look particularly promising! But that never really dampens the spirit of the occasion, and hopefully this year won’t be a repeat of 1922, when the tournament was plagued by rain every single day!
Whilst there’s nothing quite like enjoying the atmosphere at a live sporting event, sometimes, especially on a drizzly day, it seems the best viewing takes place at home, and we have the perfect match for your perfect match… Fairbourne Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc! So why not invite a few friends around for a tennis party at your place?
Here are 3 reasons tennis and Sauvignon Blanc are the perfect match…
- It will remind you of summer, even if it’s raining! A crisp chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc epitomises summer like no other beverage!
- Crisp and elegant, Sauvignon Blanc hits the high notes with its explosive aromatic personality. Its clean taste and herbal mineral finish mean it’s a foolproof wine to drink with food. There’s a reason Sauvignon Blanc is one of the world’s favourite go-to grapes.
- Fairbourne Sauvignon Blanc is extremely versatile. Choosing to serve Fairbourne at your tennis party will give you much scope in the foods you can serve alongside it. It has the capacity to honour plain, simple seafood, fresh oysters and steamed mussels, as well as salmon. Pair it with white meats like chicken and pork, and even if these are served with herb sauces or rubs the Sauvignon Blanc holds it own. The wine’s vibrant flavors also compliment spicy and ethnic cuisines. You might be watching a lunchtime or evening match, rest assured our wine can be served as an apéritif, it can take centre court or accompany the cheese course!
