We had Jamie’s Greek Fish Stew from Jamie Does and I was expecting something on a par with the Mediterranean Fish Stew we had last week (see 19 August). However, it was much milder tasting and the Tarapaca Syrah/Cabernet Rosé 2008 from Sunday Times Wine Club was too strong for it and just didn’t work. We switched to a Torres Vina Sol from Costco. An aromatic Spanish white from Catalonia that complemented the fishy broth containing seabass, haddock, fresh tomatoes, dill and parsley. The herbs were added just before serving.
An OK match, but I wonder whether a slightly blander white would have been better.
