Pimiento, Manchego & Chorizo Skewers with Modern Spanish Red

Type: Buy-And-Serve

The roasted, sheep-y and spicy flavours of Spain are skewered together for a surprisingly complex sequence of little bites. Only minutes to prepare yet rather authentic, complementing a wide range of robust Spanish red wines.
