The Simple Things
WINES FOR PICNICS
UN ÉTÉ EN PROVENCE ROSÉ, £12.95 A simple and fruity Provence rosé without the expensive price tag, although you'd easily think you’re sipping one of the best. A classic for a sunny day, as well as a brilliant pairing for the feta in the borek and the green lentil salad.
AKEMI VIURA RIOJA BLANC0, £13.95 Full of body, this white rioja is a cracking partner to hot smoked salmon. It was created especially for award-winning chef Félix Jiménez for his Japanese/ Riojan fusion dishes and is great for supporting the oiliness of the fish.
SIMPSONS CANTERBURY ROSE SPARKLING ROSÉ, £29.99 A pairing that's equally as delicious with the hot smoked salmon as it is with the white chocolate and sour cherry in the rocky road. The folks who make this are based in Barham, outside Canterbury, with a wine-making pedigree going back over 15 years.
