The Simple Things - - LIVING -

SAUSAGE & BEAN CASSE­ROLE Just The Ticket Mal­bec Men­doza 2017, £10

In­tense ripe black­berry notes with hints of milk choco­late. This is the ideal wine to en­joy with grilled meats, sausages and other rus­tic bon­fire favourites.

HOT DOGS & COLESLAW Her­dade de Coel­heiros Branco Alen­tejo 2017, £16

This el­e­gant Por­tuguese white is fresh and min­eral, with a shot of cit­rus that will com­ple­ment the corn salsa and ap­ple coleslaw. And its herba­ceous char­ac­ter will go bril­liantly with the pesto.

PUMP­KIN SCONES Quevedo Spe­cial Re­serve Tawny Port, £18

Warm up by the bon­fire with a lit­tle glass of this lovely port. Sweet, but not cloy­ing, its mar­malade-y char­ac­ter will bring out the cit­rus notes in the sticky or­ange glaze.

Wines rec­om­mended by Bor­ough Wines & Beers (bor­ough­wines.co.uk), which works with small pro­duc­ers world­wide to of­fer a unique se­lec­tion of wines, spir­its and beers through its web­site and nine shops in Lon­don and Hast­ings. Cheers!
