The wines have been carefully matched to the vegetarian recipes in this weeks Weekend Magazine.
2011 Côtes-du-Rhone Blanc, Domaine de l’Arnesque, Rhône, France (£9.00, Oddbins). This stunning, fragrant grenache blanc is a total surprise and it is the perfect match for the Moroccan vegetable tagine recipe. With wild flowers, honeysuckle and stone fruit notes this is one of the most engaging and memorable wines of the season.
2011 Dourthe, Réserve Sauvignon Blanc, Bordeaux, France (£7.99, reduced to £6.49, until 30 June, Majestic). Grassy, vibrant, herbal and citrusy, this rapier-sharp, refreshing white is stunning value and it does the job of cutting through chilli heat and spice beautifully. Great with a wide range of dishes this delicious sauvignon is a vital part of your vinous armoury.
2011 Wither Hills, Pinot Gris, Marlborough, New Zealand (£9.99, reduced to £7.49, until 6 June, Waitrose). This sultry, smooth, pear and apple-imbued pinot gris is mouth-filling and decadent and it works beautifully with lemongrass, garlic, curry flavours, milder chilli notes as well as a vast range of non-veggie fare. This deal is unmissable, too, because this is a world class wine.
2010 San Valentín, Torres, Penedès, Spain (£6.35, reduced to £4.99, until tomorrow, Morrisons). A rarely seen gem in the Torres constellation of beautiful wines, San Valentín is a fruity, mildly tropical, slightly off-dry white which soothes the palate and caresses the taste buds. It would be sensational with the Asian aubergine curry recipe and any chilli sauce-dunked treats.
2010 Mc Manis, Petit Syrah, California (£10.00, Oddbins). Our only red today is a mighty, spicy, turbo-charged blackberry-soaked wine with a smoky aroma and a multi-layered palate. The Mexican vegetable and bean chilli is tailor-made for this sensorial explosion!
