A Popular Spanish Tempranillo Good with Indian Chicken

We tried Umabai’s Spiced Almond Chicken from Supercook.  This is North Indian in style.  The chicken is marinated in spices, honey, almonds, yoghurt and cream and the result is a rich, delicately-flavoured dish.

We were unsure whether to drink a red or white wine with it and decided on balance to opt for a red.  We opened a bottle of Campo Viejo Tempranillo 2010, a medium-bodied Spanish red from Costco. We detected red fruits and vanilla on the nose and the wine tasted of red fruits and spicy vanilla with a smooth long finish.  A good match.

This particular wine continues to be very versatile in matching a wide range of foods, including some difficult pairings.IMG_0164.JPG (2)
