With a dozen plump and juicy king prawns bedding down amongst the slices of green beans the paella is almost done; deeply coloured rice retaining a subtle bite with the saffron adding a whiff of exoticness to the aroma. To accompany a white was required – a bottle suitable for matching with seafood, one with a little greenness to compliment the green beans.

Wine Tasting Note: Chapel Down Bacchus Reserve, 2003, England.
Available from English Wines Group for £9.99.
That’s passion fruit that is! ep on the palate mingling with a distinctly Sauvignon Blanc style the flavours are overwhelmingly of Passion Fruit. There is a little spritz and maybe a touch of sweetness, medium in body and a touch of white blossom and gooseberry; but over-all it is passion fruit flavours that dominate. All in all rather nice.

Scribblings Rating – 90/100

This particular bottling is a selected tank of high quality fruit, as such it is not produced every year. Even in early 2006 this vintage is still fresh and vibrant.
