... and to drink

Susy Atkins picks the perfect pairings

-

Georgie asks for something ‘fresh and crisp’, and this sauvignon blanc fits the bill – a splendid match for her prawn skewers. I’ve got a refreshing white for her chicken, too, and a fruity red for the aubergine.

STONELEIGH SAUVIGNON BLANC 2020,

Marlboroug­h, New Zealand, 13%, £9.75, Asda, or £10, Sainsbury’s

A particular­ly zingy, lively young NZSB, with tart, superfresh flavours of passionfru­it and grapefruit that can take on the chilli, vinegar and lemon in Georgie’s prawn skewers.

FOUND RIBOLLA GIALLA 2020,

Venezia Giulia, Italy, 12%, £7, M&S

Fresh Italian white made from the ancient grape ribollo gialla, which delivers apple-blossom scent and pear and peach fruit. Try it with the harissa chicken kebabs.

BEAUJOLAIS LES PIERRES DOREES, CUVEE LOUIS DEPAGNEUX 2020,

France, 12.5%, £7.95, The Wine Society

A smooth, juicy young beaujolais hits the mark with the aubergine kebabs – this one has bags of sweetly ripe

strawberry fruit.
