A Touraine Sauvignon is Ideal with Barbecued Trout

We have some fishing lakes near us called Jacklands where we can buy freshly-caught trout that are ideal for a barbecue on a warm day.

We found an ideal recipe on the British Trout Association website – BBQ Lemon and Herb Trout.  The trout are stuffed with lemons, parsley, thyme, garlic and rosemary and served with potato parcels that are also cooked on the barbie.

To drink with the meal we opened a bottle of Touraine Sauvignon Blanc, Mandard 2011, a French white from the Wine Society.  It appeared golden in the glass and tasted fresh with citrus lemon flavours and a clean, creamy tropical fruit finish.   A really good wine and a very gooIMG_0285.JPG (2)d match with the fish.
