With warmer, brighter days comes the desire for lighter meals and complementary wine pairings that bring out the flavours of the new season’s palate. October is Marine Month and both the best catch and the best match by far is De Toren Délicate served with freshly caught local Yellowtail – a delightful pairing indeed.
An innovative reimagining of red wine, one that offers the refreshment of a white wine and the elegance of a red wine, the French-inspired De Toren Délicate is an exquisite and light cépage (blend) that reveals its best assets when served slightly chilled. The lightness of the wine is in harmony with the delicate fish, which also happens to be green-listed by SASSI.
