White WineWine Tasting Note: Stormhoek African Storm Trinity, 2006, Western Cape, South Africa. Threshers/WineRack £6.99

Possibly sporting the world's dullest label the Stormhoek African Storm is a 'special release' (whatever that means); the Trinity aspect stemming from a mix of Muscat, Chenin Blanc and Viognier.

The Muscat component dominates the aroma with grapes, limes, peach and more tropical fruits to the fore. The palate is crisp and sharpingly clean and vibrant. A more apply flavour dominates but a peach-lychee-rose complexity arises before the acidity cuts in and leaves the mouth tinglingly fresh. It is dry; which is a shame really as the requirement was for something with a little sweetness to match a dish of Singapore-Style Noodles.

Alcohol 12.5%
Scribblings Rating - 86/100 [3.25 out of 5]

The wine worked rather well with the ginger/chilli chicken and prawn noodles (recipe in September issue of Delicious). The curry heat (the ingredients include a teaspoon or two of chilli powder) was matched head on by the wine while the ginger component brought out an interesting spiciness in the wine. The floral-lime finish wasn't diminished either. Overall a decent pairing.
