Wine List Confidential: Tate Modern

A razor sharp list led by Hamish Anderson best enjoyed from a front window table facing St Paul’s across the water.

Flutes of English sparkling wine from Coates and Seely, or Billecart-Salmon Réserve Champagne will make for a very serviceable apéro.

The menu is largely British; the kitchen has a light touch and each dish comes with a suggested wine pairing.

Chicken liver parfait with 10-year-old sercial Madeira would be a good place to start. Rump of Swaledale lamb with ‘Cadette’ Fitou 2012 from Domaine Les Milles Vignes would also make a hell of a lot of sense.

Great to see some high-quality Greek gear here too – Hatzidakis Assyrtiko from Santorini not least.
