Bay Radio’s Sunday Brunch Oct.2011

Tortilla de Patatas con Salsa Brava:
A super tapa served in bars and restaurants throughout Spain is here elevated to a higher plain by the award winning chef at Javea’s Restaurante.
Sunday Brunch Presenters, Noelle and Bob - with empty glasses!

However there are simple (and therefore inexpensive!) wines that will match this dish well. Classic for tortilla, without the sauce, would be a fairly bland Spanish white, one from La Mancha made fro Airen, for example. However the sauce, with it’s garlic and a hint of heat from the Guindilla, means we could also choose a rosado.

Coincidentally I tasted one yesterday, in situ at Bodegas Castaño, DO Yecla, that would admirably fit the bill – try Dominio de Espinel from Bodegas Castaño.
