A Rueda from Spain is Very Good with Slow-Cooked Chicken in White Wine

We tried Chicken in White Wine from the Slow Cook Book. 2014-11-13 10.49.10

Chicken pieces are marinated in white wine, onions, celery, garlic and peppercorns.  The marinated chicken is then slow-cooked in its marinade with shallots, chicken stock and bouquet garni.  Mushrooms are added towards the end. We served the meal with mashed potato.

We paired this tasty and warming casserole with a bottle of Libra Rueda Verdejo 2013, a Spanish white wine from Waitrose.

The wine was slightly off-dry, fresh, zingy, with a touch of apple, but the predominant flavours were smooth slightly creamy pineapple and mangoes.  The finish was crisp.  We thought this enjoyable wine was a very good match with the slow-cooked chicken.2014-11-13 18.24.03
