A mouth full but still refreshing and thirst-quenching.
Albarín is the perfect match with grilled fish, meat and veggies, dishes with lots of spices and doesn’t get surpassed by Asian dishes with chillis and ginger, usually a wines foe. Hence why it’s a good match with Sid’s wrap.
If you love rosé, Bodegas Pardevalles has launched a fantastic one in the same extraordinary style. Bon profit!
