Vermentino 2021 Tasting notes:
Our Wild Rose Vermentino is the perfect wine to enjoy chilled with a seafood platter or a grilled fish.
Wine with the food.
The acidity of the wine cuts through the heat of the tomato sauce and the richness of the pasta by creating another layer of complexity.
Our food and wine match of the month...
Prawns in a spicy tomato sauce with home-made fettuccine
Prawns in tomato sauce
Make the pasta dough.
Make the sauce.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a frypan. Add the onion and garlic and saute gently until golden.
Pour the white wine in and bring to the boil 2-3 minutes to evaporate the alcohol.
Cut the tomatoes in quarters and add them to the pan. Add chili flakes, salt and pepper and reduce the heat to medium/ slow to cook slowly the sauce. After 20 minutes the sauce will have thickened, add the whole prawns and cook for a further 5 minutes. Stir through chopped herbs.
Serve hot with the fettuccine. Enjoy!

Welcome to this months recipe and wine of the month, this is something a little more special being a back vintage wine from a vintage (2013) which is proving to be one that rewards patience of cellaring.
The vibrancy of the wine intensifies the dish. The match was so good that the bottle could be easily finished (or was) by the end of the meal.
