It’s great with fish, particularly oily fish and shellfish. Available by the bottle in our Food Hall, or by the glass or bottle in our Cafe, where it is July’s guest white wine. 

July’s guest red wine in the Cafe is Las Maritos Malbec Shiraz from Argentina, the rose is Ca’Del Bianco Pinot Grigio Rose from Italy.
