Autumn has most definitely arrived in the UK. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up your beloved Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc for winter reds… Indeed not, at Fairbourne, we believe that your favourite varietal transcends all seasons, and tastes just as perfect while sipped by the fireside, as it does quaffed by the poolside!
Here are three ways to enjoy Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc even though the temperatures outside may have cooled:
A super soup – A warming bowl of soup makes the perfect lunchtime treat. But a seafood chowder is wholesome enough for a main meal supper time too! A great chowder doesn’t need to be complex, simply pick up some fish pie mix from the seafood counter at your favourite supermarket and a packet of cooked, mixed seafood from the freezer department, and everything else you need is probably in the fridge or the store cupboard. We love this recipe from the BBC Good Food website. It’s simple and fast to prepare.
A smashing salad – Just because the cooler climes are here you don’t have to give up on your salad, simply warm things up a little bit. This Trio of Warm Seafood Salad, uses mussels, halibut and scallops; and would pair beautifully with Fairbourne Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
A Sunday Roast – It’s no secret that seafood is a natural accompaniment for Fairbourne Sauvignon Blanc, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be reserved exclusively for the fish course. Its versatility and easy drinking nature also ensures it is very much at home with white meats, and what could make a warmer welcome for Autumn than a juicy roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings? Delight your Sunday lunch guests with a bottle of Fairbourne Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc for social sipping. Head to your local Majestic Wines store in the UK to find yours.
