Wine Pairing

Advice of Wine to combine

Suggest from Sommelier

It is usually eat this succulent dish on winter weekends so we can cake a nice long siesta afterwards. The ideal companion here would be a rather rustic, high-alcohol wine. Some red blends, especially those with a significant portion of the variety Carignan would work perfectly.
