Wine to try
2004 All Saints Family Cellar Marsanne, Rutherglen, A$26.50
Haricot beans form the heart of this rustic Greek soup, their dense, starchy texture needing a (white) wine with sufficient depth and density to match. While an amontillado sherry would be fine, an alternative is a rich, honeysuckle-flavoured marsanne – not a youngster, rather one with some weight and substance. An aged Tahbilk Marsanne would serve well, as does this version from Rutherglen’s All Saints, its gentle touch of oak adding to its structure and richness and happily equalling that of the soup.
