A South African White Good with a Chicken Tagine

We were invited out to friends for dinner and our hostess served Chicken, Olive and Preserved Lemon Tagine – a recipe from Jamie Does.  It was served with couscous and Caesar salad.  Our host, Paul, opened a bottle of Namaqua Elephant River Chenin Blanc Chardonnay 2011, a South African white from Morrisons.  We tasted melons, peaches and a lemony finish, which chimed in well with the preserved lemons in the Tagine.  We all agreed it was a good match and that Paul had chosen well.
