Top 10 wines in the UK press

Titi Egri Bikaver 2012

EgriBikaverBullsBlood_2011_Gal_grandeNow that Autumn is very much upon us, “it is a good time to think about what wine works best with game birds,” writes The Guardian‘s Fiona Beckett.

In an effort to move away from the typical Bordeaux / Burgundy / Rioja / Barolo pairing with deeply flavoursome meats – a pairing that still works, Beckett insists – she says that, if you’re cooking game at home, you should “let the other ingredients in the recipe dictate your drink choice.

“If you’re making pheasant with apples, say, a spätlese German riesling, or even a vintage cider, is probably going to work better than a red wine.”

However, “if you’re making a blackberry or damson sauce, you could do with the wilder, more exotic flavours you get in a Hungarian red such as Tibor Gal’s version of Bull’s Blood, Titi Egri Bikaver 2012, a blend of Kekfrankos, Kadarka, Cabernet Franc and Syrah,” writes Beckett.

The 14.5% abv wine is available in the UK for £17.50 from Oddbins.
