A Bordeaux Blanc is a Pleasant Match with Fish and Chips

We fancied a takeaway Fish and Chips and tonight was an opportunity.  Many have recommended us to try Backwell Fish Bar.

We both chose Haddock and received good-sized tasty pieces, with enormous portions of chips.  I also had mushy peas.   Warning, unless you have a huge appetite you can get away with sharing a portion of chips.  We would definitely recommend too.

I read recently that white Bordeaux pairs well with Fish and Chips, so we opened a bottle of Wines from France Bordeaux Blanc 2011, a full French white from Tesco.  The wine was the classic combination of SemilloIMG_0165.JPG (2)n and Sauvignon Blanc.  It had a citrus and melon nose with a fresh peachy flavour.  A very pleasant pairing.
