Wine picks to enjoy with all kinds of seafood
Few things are as indulgent and delicious as great seafood. The Brit craze for sushi is just one of them and we've got the best wine to try with it: Grace Koshu Kayagatake from Yamanashi, Japan. It's not sake. It's a crisp, light white wine with subtle hints of lemon and pink grapefruit. The Japanese seem to always get the complexities right in alcoholic drinks (whisky, sake, beer), favouring delicacy and elegance. The result is a masterful use of the Koshu grape variety to create the world's finest sushi wine partner.
Talking of a British craze though we can't ignore the nation's favourite seafood dish: fish and chips. Fish and chips is salty, so we need acidity to cut through and complement the food. The best way to do this is to go for a Champagne or an English sparkling wine. Favourites include the toasty, rich Furleigh Estate Classic Cuvee from Dorset or the brilliantly fruity Raimes Classic Sparkling from the South Downs in Hampshire. Both are yummy with a classic meal from your local chippy.
If you prefer a shellfish bonanza, and I'm thinking mussels or clams, then you have to try a great rose. You could give the dry, red fruit styles of Provence a go or opt for the unusual with a glass of Kayra Beyaz Kalecik Karasi Rose from Anatolia, Turkey. It's a unique rose brimming with watermelon, orange and strawberry flavours.
