Wine Tasting Note: Tria Grillo, 2002, Sicily, Italy.
£5.99 Waitrose Exclusive.
Getting into the spirit of the next Wine Blogging Wednesday by selecting a Sicilian wine . (Although WBW concerns red wine and this is a white). Grillo is the grape – one of those obscure varieties that really should be better known. It was once the basis for Marsala which is a style of wine that needs to escape the kitchen (a hint there on my WBW entry!). This full-bodied white is lovely. Dry, interesting aroma and crisp citrus-fresh flavours with a hint of minerality in the texture. This would be great with a creamy pasta dish. Our bottle was consumed with a rather nice Olla Podrida. This is a Spanish stew of mixed vegetables, chick peas, Chorizo and chicken – the recipe was hastily copied from last Saturday's Times. I forgot to add the cabbage though – oops.

"AN OLLA PODRIDA is a gallimaufry, a salmagundi, a potpourri, a hotchpotch, a miscellany of ingredients cooked together in the one pot. It appears in Don Quixote as a long, slow-cooked stew, 'the rotten pot'. "
