Domaine du Vieux Vauvert Vouvray 2007

This is an affordable, medium-dry white made in the Loire Valley in France from Chenin Blanc grapes.

I wouldn't say it has massive amounts of character, but its tingling acidity and residual sugar make it a fine food wine. It kind of reminds me of an Australian Riesling - all lime and acid.

I bought it because I wanted something that would go with my spicy ginger chicken, and also cheese (I'm trying to learn about cheese, but that's another story...), and I would buy it again if I was looking for something versatile.

I like this style of wine, mostly for its versatility at the table. This particular one is made exclusively for Waitrose.
