Exploration Wines

What to serve with kimchi and ceviche
The old adage of ‘what grows together goes together’ no longer works when you are thinking about some of the world’s more exotic cuisines. Many of the dishes we now like to eat come from non-wine producing nations and while a beer or sake might do, it’s still fun to find wine matches that work too. Inspired by wine writer David Williams’ article on this subject we have put together a spice-busting selection with a special mixed case to explore this new world order in the pleasure of your own home.
