FOOD

Into the blue

Traditional wines are crafted from

grapes, but there's an array of awardwinning English

wines made from

British-grown blueberries. Blue

Aurora is made exclusively in the UK,

using blueberries carefully grown at

the family-run in Northamptonshire.

Their Ice Wine is wonderful when it's

cold outside.

Dusk is a medium dry, medium

bodied blueberry wine with a crisp,

fresh and deliciously fruity zing,

best served chilled. Gluten free and

suitable for vegans(75cl. £11.95). This

is Blue Aurora's lightest blueberry

wine and perfect for taking the

edge off heavy Christmas food

with its bright acidity and lovely

fruit flavours. According to tasting

notes supplied by the company, the

nose is hedgerow mulberry and

blackberry with a delicate hint of

violet and rosemary. The palate is

fresh, clean and bright, full of dark

berries with a crisp acidity balancing

the slight residual sweetness, and

a subtle herbal aftertaste. The

finish is long, lingering, flavourful

finish with a small kick of tannins.

It should go with small plates of

serrano ham, olives, stuffed cherry

peppers, sundried tomatoes.

Or try with starter such as ham

hock terrine, asparagus wrapped

in prosciutto or cheese stuffed

Portobello mushrooms.

Midnight is a more intense,

oak-infused, rich and full bodied

medium dry blueberry wine. Best

served at room temperature and

awarded Bronze at its debut at the

IWSC (International Wine & Spirit

Competition) 2021. Tasting notes say

the nose is ripe cherry and plum with

a hint of vanilla and thyme. Palate is

full bodied, ripe with rich berries on

a bed of vanilla notes and a slight,

warming spice. It has a long, smooth

finish, with a kick of tannin. Drink

with small plates of chorizo, mature

cheddar, salted pretzels, honey &

mustard sausages or serve with

starters of caramelised onion & goats

cheese tart, chicken liver parfait or

baked camembert. At Christmas pair

with pink Beef Wellington, traditional

turkey or a flavoursome nut roast.

Then Ice Wine is a sweet and

intensely fruity blueberry that was

awarded Silver at its debut at the

IWSC (International Wine & Spirit

Competition) 2021 and should be

served as an aperitif with sparkling

wine or as the perfect alternative

to a traditional Port or Sherry. The

nose has dark berries and red fruits

with a delicate hint of candied

violet and rose petal, the palate

has ripe berry notes reminiscent

of kirsch or blueberry jam with a

finish of refreshing acidity lifting

the sweet finish. Pair with small

plates of brie topped with cranberry;

stilton & walnut; smoked salmon

and beetroot and goat's cheese

blinis. Or serve with a dessert such

as warm chocolate brownie with a

raspberry compote or sticky toffee

pudding. Also works well with all

manner of after-dinner treats such

as a cheeseboard or a helping of

Christmas pudding.
