Trying this Malbec from Morrisons not only opened the door to the wonderful world of Patagonian Malbec, but also highlighted a great vineyard that makes the majority of its wines suitable for vegans! Great value for £10.
Champagne: Nicolas Feuillatte NV is Vegan-Friendly
Made by the third largest Champagne producer, Nicolas Feuillatte non-vintage Champagne is suitable for vegans, well-priced, and tastes absolutely stunning. See my tasting notes and food pairing ideas in the post...
Dry Riesling: Tesco’s Finest Riesling, Rheinhessen, Germany
Well-balanced fruit and refreshing acidity, culminating in a gorgeous mineral finish; Tesco's Finest Riesling is a shining example of the classic German Riesling, for under £10. Its medium character is a hit with a range of foods- not least, the most extravagant yet easy vegan dish there is - fake scallops!
Vegan Wine and Food Pairing: Butternut Squash Ravioli with Champagne
Move over oysters - pairing champagne with vegetables is so much more interesting. Homemade butternut squash and sage ravioli matched with Charles Heidsieck so beautifully, there should have been a second bottle opened to celebrate!
Viognier: Adobe Riserva 2016
With a lovely floral nose of jasmine and honeysuckle, nicely balanced with apricot sweetness and a crisp refreshing finish, Emiliana's Adobe Riserva was the perfect vegan-friendly Viognier to find at a country pub in the middle of nowhere, and a shining example of just how good organic, sustainable, and biodynamic wines can be!
Chardonnay: Louis Latour Ardeche 2015
Chardonnay is a little like the marmite of the wine world. It can be a beautiful wine however, and a lovely example of a vegan unoaked Chardonnay is Louis Latour’s Ardeche.
