Spaghetti Pescatore is one of our favourite seafood dishes. It’s always in season, no matter what the weather outside, and it pairs well with our White Bordeaux Style wine.

White Bordeaux Style is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon.  The taste of dry White Bordeaux wine delivers a cornucopia of flavours and characteristics that include fresh lemon, citrus rind, flowers, spice, honey, orange, lime, grapefruit, butter and vanilla. You can also find elements of herbs, lemon wax and fresh cut grass.

White Bordeaux wines at their best are rich, deep, concentrated and powerful. They can be fresh, display minerality and are often quite refreshing. When White Bordeaux wines age, they develop more complicated scents of honey, flowers, citrus, spice and stone characteristics. While dry White Bordeaux wine is produced in several appellations, the top dry, White Bordeaux wine comes from Pessac Leognan. This subtle wine will surprise you with its aromatic bouquet and complexity on the palate. Thanks to its perfectly balanced acidity, it leaves a lasting impression of delicacy and fruit.

This easy to drink wine is delicious with grilled fish, shellfish or on its own as an aperitif.
