Portuguese wines at Nandos

By coincidence, today I ended up drinking wine made at the winery I visited yesterday. It's kind of cool.

We took a quick trip to Chav heaven, Staines, for some shopping. Afterwards, we decided to get something to eat, and so we gave Nandos a go (www.nandos.co.uk). I've never been before, despite the fact that we have one virtually opposite our home.

Verdict? Much better than I'd expected. It's really well conceived, and the food is simple and quite tasty. There's a Portuguese emphasis, but it's a modest one. [Nandos actually stems from Portuguese ex-pats in South Africa.]

We washed our food down with a couple of the Tagus Creek wines from the short Portuguese/South African wine list. Fiona had the Fernao Pires/Chardonnay 2007 (fresh, a bit nutty, with nice fruity flavours) and I had the Cabernet Sauvignon/Aragonez 2007 (a spicy, chunky but deliciously fruity red). They're not especially Portuguese in character, but it's good to see these wines on a mainstream list like this (Nandos has 207 branches in the UK).
