My personal notes

Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$ Domaine des Salices Viognier 2014

A viognier with exotic accents of peach and flowers that will easily go along this asian flavored recipe.

+- 30$ Treana Marsanne / Viognier 2013

An intense and flavorful viognier blend along with chardonnay produced by the family that is also elaborating Liberty School.

British, À la fût

This English nut brown ale offers rich notes of nuts, without containing any, as well as delicate notes of red berries. These aromas will perfectly pair with the strong peanut aromas of this dish. Very dry, it will cut into the oily side of the dish brought by the peanuts.
