Acceptable Pinot Grigio from the Veneto. Lovely straw colour, subtle fruit. Complemented my Tempura of Cod. Set menu €24.50. Wine €27.50.
OK, so I don’t seek out or regularly buy mass manufactured wines. Nor am I a fan of the Multiples own label wine offerings though I do understand that they’re putting their names on them so the quality must be OK.
That’s why, when Lesley did one of those M&S meals (Rosti Potatoes, Fish Stew, Raspberry Compote) for two which included a bottle of wine I didn’t risk opening their wine instead had a nice bottle of Sauvignon Blanc with the meal. We did try the Bianco delle Venezie 2011, a blend of Garganega and Trebbiano a few days later and to our delight, like the food, it was remarkably good. Full marks M&S. We’ll do the meal deals again.
