Gone Fishing

Actually, gone fishing, crabbing, shell-seeking, rock-pooling, sand-in-sandwiches picnicking and all that.

We'll send you a virtual postcard, but can't promise to post it before we get home.

In the meantime, here's what I've just packed in the food box:

Current white in the fridge:  Maurel Vedeau Sauvignon Blanc/Grenache, £4.74, Tesco.com
Uncomplicated Southern French blend of two grapes, the aromatic Sauvignon Blanc and the slightly faceless Grenache but the former makes the latter look good. Easy peachy fruit with a twist of lemon, this is a great starter for under two for £10. Hope you get my David Nicholls' film reference there. One Day comes out soon, I just hope the film as as good as the hype. 

Current red on the side: Fairtrade Tilimuqu Cabernet/Bonarda, £6.99, Waitrose
Picked this up in Waitrose last week. Another blend and again, as above, the former grape (Cabernet) makes the latter (Bonarda) look good. Lovely bramble fruit with a tickle of spice on the finish, this is a gorgeous red that usually brings a Shepherd's Pie to life. Made from grapes grown in the La Riojana region in Argentina, this is Fairtrade and organic and delicious. 

Happy holidays x
