Top 5 Wines With Fish


Waitrose Chablis - £11.99

IWSC 2013 Bronze Winner

Made in partnership with the Cave due to its access to a high proportion of the best fruit and the expert blending ability of David Delaye, the chief winemaker. Dry and crisp, with depth of fresh citrus-fruit flavour, it picks up a subtle minerality from the soil, which contains ancient marine fossils.

First Cape President's Selection Sauvignon Blanc - £5.79

Zesty and refreshing, this Sauvignon Blanc is packed with citrus and gooseberry notes. New, and exclusive to Waitrose from the well-known First Cape brand, this wine has a fantastically bright character and friendly style. It’s a great partner for fish dishes or salads, and a reliable guest for Sauvignon Blanc fans at parties!

Malvira Roero Arneis - £8.24

A classic example of the Arneis grape variety produced to the southeast of Turin. Nervous yet broad, this is one of the forgotten grapes of Italy - persuasive tropical fruit with underlying minerality and fine, clean finish. Elegant and rich, it will have diverse appeal but is excellent with grilled fish.

Robert Mondavi Woodbridge Chardonnay - £7.49

A crisp white with a silky creamy finish. There's lush ripe pear and peach flavours, with hints of vanilla oak spices – sunshine in a bottle. Each vineyard lot used for this wine is processed separately so that the full panoply of nuances can contribute to the final blend. Excellent with roast poultry.

This wine is made in consultation with Master of Wine Angela Muir and Waitrose’s own wine buyer Ken Mackay. Enjoy with smoked cod or haddock. Exclusive to Waitrose.

Decanter 2013 Bronze Winner

A ripe cherry scented wine with fresh balancing acidity. This is such a vibrant expression of the southern area of Tuscany. Plenty of classic Sangiovese flavours are well-blended with fine oak notes to make a smoky and complex wine with a herby finish. Would go well with herbed rack of lamb.

The wine has a firm structure with notes of cassis on the palate, making it a cracking partner to lamb and moussaka, or enjoy with mature cheeses. Exclusive to Waitrose.

Fresh blackberry fruit flavours combine with plenty of black pepper character, followed by a refreshing finish that makes this wine a perfect match for slow cooked lamb or roasted summer vegetables.
