Tuna & Red Pepper Salad

Pair with Manzanilla

This brightly coloured salad and fresh & vibrant - exactly like a Manzanilla which is why it pairs together so beautifully. The salty tang of the capers working with the gentle acidity of the Sherry vinegar alongside the sweetness of the red peppers makes this a tricky dish to find the perfect wine partner but with Manzanilla, you have it!

1 small or half large 
Sweet Onion, very finely sliced

Sherry Vinegar to taste
