What to drink in January
We recommend that you drink the De Grendel Viognier 2015 this month. This is a wine with rich, intense aromas and tastes of white flowers, ripe fleshy peaches, apricots and desiccated pineapple followed through on the palate with an undertow of soft, buttery oak barrel flavours.
It generally pairs well with the sort of ingredients and dishes that match well with chardonnay and oaked chenin blancs but with a spicier twist.
What to do with Christmas leftovers:
This dish is the very best food partner for Viognier and it's so versatile and easy to make. The lovely toasted spicy notes of the Madras curry powder are beautifully toned down by the creaminess of the mayonnaise and the mango chutney just enhances the fruitiness of the Viognier.
Use leftover turkey meat or chicken from a roast chicken but you can easily poach a few chicken breasts to make the salad. You can mix the cooked meat with the dressing in the link below and serve on a bed of crispy fresh lettuce or serve in a wrap.
