Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$ Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc

A typical New-Zealander sauvignon with intense citrus accents and a semi-dry character that gives it just enough texture...

+- 30$ Chateau Ste-Michelle Eroica Riesling 2012

A riesling from Washington state that recalls this type of sweet and salty cuisine, with a sweet touch balanced by a delightful acidity.
