"Fairtrade wines are coming of age," says Jonathan Ray. Although he was disappointed with the wines on offer two years ago, Ray insists that the latest vintages are "vastly improved". "You can feel good about drinking them," he adds.
Heaven on Earth Organic Sweet Wine NV (6.99/375ml, Stanton Wine Co) "boasts rich apricot and honey tones that make it ideal for pt de foie, blue cheese or creamy puddings". 2007 Fairhills Ros (4.99, Somerfield, Tesco, Waitrose) is "packed with vivacious, succulent wild strawberry fruit backed by a fine dry finish". And 2007 Origin Fairtrade Viognier (6.99 or 12 for three; Threshers, Wine Rack) is a "charmingly ripe, peachy and aromatic Viognier that goes beautifully with mild chicken curry or apricot-stuffed loin of pork".
