The top 10 wines in the UK press

Olly Smith recommends a Mother’s Day food and wine pairing, which he dubs “the eighth wonder of the world” while David Williams reveals his favourite wines for spring.

Top 10 wines in the UK pressAs well as the “eighth wonder” pairing, Smith runs through other possibilities for Mother’s Day, including one with Graham’s Quinta dos Malvedos 2001. Smith wrote in the Mail on Sunday: “This rich, sweet and spicy giant of a wine is exuberant and proudly extravagant. Snap a few cubes of dark chocolate and give mum a treat after lunch.”

As a food and wine pairing rule Smith adds: “Salty flavours in food work well with a bit of acidity and freshness in wine. Smoked salmon and Champagne is a classic example. But salt in food makes tannin taste edgy and bitter so avoid big chunky reds with salty flavour.”

Writing in The Observer, David Williams picks “two French classics and an interesting Chenin Blanc from New Zealand to welcome in the new season.”
