Suggested Wine Pairing from Butlers Wine Cellar

Austrian Sepp Moser Zweigelt Reserve 2014

Ripe cherry, herbal and subtle tobacco aromas. The palate has juicy plum and berry fruit, fresh and bright acidity, supple balancing tannins and a bitter cherry twist on the finish – perfect for a hot and spicy goulash.

Chilean Montevista Merlot

A wine with poise, elegance and restraint. The nose has plenty of ripe and meaty notes with plum, cherry and bramble fruit aromas. The palate has lots of plum as well as herbal notes with a lovely sappy finish. It is light and has a purity and freshness with a hint of spice.
