A Smooth Spanish Garnacha is a Hit with Gratin de Pomme de Terre et Viande

For a midweek meal we tried Gratin de Pomme de Terre et Viande from Supercook.  This is potato and beef patties baked with a tomato sauce.

The minced beef combines with potato, garlic, onions, melted cheddar cheese and 2014-06-04 19.22.25a sauce made from canned tomatoes, tomato purée, thyme and seasoning.  Very tasty.

We paired the dish with a bottle of Bajondillo Méntrida 2012, a full-bodied Spanish red from the Wine Society.

This creamy, smooth, rich Garnacha comes from the province of Toledo just south of Madrid and we savoured its black fruits, especially blackberries and cherries and a dark chocolate edge.  Highly recommended and great with the food.
