Search for the Perfect Devon Wine to Accompany South Devon Crab
Visit South Devon recently began a search for the best wine to accompany South Devon Crab. A total of 16 wines were entered into the competition, and a blind tasting session took place to decide the winner.
International wine writer Susy Atkins, who is one of the regular wine experts from BBC1's Saturday Kitchen, together with Master of Wine Xenia Irwin, local wine merchant Nick Borst-Smith, Ben Foster of Newton Wines, James Dart from Dart’s Farm and Jonathan Woollatt from Chris Piper Wines were the judges who took part in the competition.
The 2010 Sharpham Estate Selection from South Devon Sharpham Estate was pronounced the winner by the panel of judges, with Susy Atkins saying, “It had just the right balance of crisp acidity and juicy fruit flavours to go with the crab.”
