From somewhere different, the unlikely Martin Pomfy Cabernet Sauvignon Blanc from Solvakia is a highly successful white take on Cabernet Sauvignon, not especially aromatic, but textured, weighty yet crisp.
…so here is something a bit odd, which would certainly intrigue your guests at this dinner party and take their minds off the fact that you haven’t yet tidied up the garden. Cabernet Sauvignon is of course one of those "international" grape varieties grown everywhere, but a white wine made from this classic red grape?
Well, if you keep the juice away from the skins and your fingers crossed, it can be done, as the fascinating Martin Pomfy Cabernet Sauvignon Blanc 2017 demonstrates with a Slovakian wine that will certainly intrigue your wine buff friends, who will savour its fullish, herbal flavours. Serve with any shellfish, fish stews or even charcuterie and lighter Middle Eastern mezze.
…some good stuff, too, from a country more associated with beer, with Shropshire merchant Tanners stocking the wines of Slovakia’s Martin Pomfy, which includes an unusual but lovely white made from red cabernet sauvignon grapes with gentle herbal flavours.
