A Spanish Red Pairs Well with a Turkish Lamb Dish

Tonight we enjoyed one of our favourite lamb dishes – Yogurtli Kebab from Supercook.  This is a really delicious Turkish dish and is cubed lamb marinated in yogurt, cumin, onion and lemon juice. It is cooked with tomatoes and paprika and served on a bed of toast would you believe?  It is quite mildly spiced but full of flavour. We opened a bottle of Torres La Plaza Real Garnacha Syrah 2008 from Sunday Times Wine Club.  We last had a bottle of this wine with Greek Lamb Stew and really enjoyed it (see 18th August 2011).  This Spanish red exhibited cherry flavours, with smooth vanilla and subtle spices.  A very good match with the lamb.
