My Paratha

Oh My Cod

Dark Horse

This Dark Horse 2018 Californian Chardonnay was a absolute delight. It had amazing flavours of pear & vanilla which were followed by caramel that led to a very smooth and creamy finish. This turned out to be a perfect pairing for our Chicken Piri Piri as it complimented the spices of the dish perfectly
