Served on Boxing Day with a starter of Goats Cheese salad made festive with the addition of cranberries and a dressing of clementine juice, cassis and advocado oil. A superb partnership.

Wine Tasting Note: Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc, 2005, Marlborough, New Zealand.
From Oddbins for £8.
A superb punchy, green, peppery Sauvignon. I have long loved the Dashwood range from those days long ago when I worked for the Fuller’s offie chain. They listed this wine and it just flew off the shelves. Packed with ‘green’ citrus flavours and a tingly, stony palate. All you could want in a Kiwi Sauvignon. Now resplendent under a funky new label. Alcohol 13.5%.
Scribblings Rating – 94/100.
