A Lemony Portuguese White is Very Good with Jamie’s Lemony Fish Pie

We tried the fish pie recipe from Jamie Oliver’s website.  The pie contains salmon, smoked haddock and prawns and has a lovely lemony flavour, with a spicy kick from the addition of red chilli.  We served it with runner beans.IMG_0555

We thought a lemony white would be just the job to drink with the meal and opened a bottle of Albarrada Vinho Regional Alentejano 2011, a Portuguese white from the Sunday Times Wine Club.

We detected freshly cut grass on the nose, clean, fresh lemon fruitiness and a little earthiness, with a creamy finish. We thought this was a very good match.
