Summer Wine Pairings
We have paired up with our friends at Mr Wheeler to introduce some exciting new wines that are perfect to go with seafood. The first wine we would like to share is a delicate dry rosé that is just stunning with crab.
Domaine Des Lices Rosé 2016
Domaine des Lices is from the Pays du Var, so a bit further north near Aix en Provence - still proper Provence. This family Domaine was established in 1925 in Ansouis, which is often cited as one of the most beautiful villages in France. There are olive groves as well as vines, with great views of the Luberon mountain.
A very pretty Provençal rosé, pale in colour with pronounced notes of strawberries and exotic fruits. Crisp and fresh with a great balance of perfume and ripe peaches. This delicate fruitiness is one of the reasons why it goes so well with crab, not too powerful to overshadow the subtle crab flavours and crisp enough to enhance the delicate white crab meat.
Should you wish to try this wine with your crab you can add it to your basket here, or you will find it as an option on all our delicious crab produce.
