When living in a hot tropical climate such as South East Asia, I find myself drinking lighter style whites as they are refreshing, easy drinking and perfect for sharing. When I look to relaxing with a glass of white or entertain with a poolside BBQ, I like to pull out one that not only is refreshing but also has good balance that will please with or without food. There is one style that I have rediscovered and so glad I did. If you are looking for a change to your everyday Sauvignon Blanc, try a Bordeaux Blanc. Here are a few recommandations.

    Duck a l'Orange, a classic of French home cooking, considered as one of the iconic dishes to French gastronomy! Rich and sweet, Duck a l'Orange is an easy dish to make with 15 minutes of preparation and 40 minutes cooking. Sweet yet flavory, Duck a L'Orange goes well with a large variety of wines such as Kabinett, Puligny-Montrachet, Chablis Grand-Cru, New Zealand's Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc!

    Prime rib, the king of beef cuts is usually the center of holidays season. It’s called a standing rib roast because to cook it, you position the roast majestically on its rib bones in the roasting pan. Beautifully marbled with fat, this roast is rich, juicy, and tender—a feast for the eyes and the belly. And what's better to accompany this delicious dish than a Malbec from Mendoza Region in Argentina! The main fruit flavors in a glass of Argentina Malbec are blackberry, plum and black cherry. The nuanced flavors offer milk chocolate, cocoa powder, violet flowers, leather and a sweet tobacco finish.
