Our wine stewards suggest

+- 25$TORRE ROSAZZA PINOT GRIGIO 2014

A pleasing wine to accompany this tasty salad, with its nose of beeswax, exotic fruit, spices and a lemony retro finish. A satiny texture and a beautiful mineral complete the whole. Ah ... and a vague impression of spring in this wine!

AMERICAN JESUS PALE ALE, HOPERA, 5%

This pale ale will offer notes of grapefruit and tropical fruits that will go well with the nuts, while the moderate bitterness of beer will recall that of asparagus. A fruity accord without fruit!
