Wine description
Les Rosbifs is a good-natured French nickname for the English which originated in the kitchen. It was an 18th Century gastronomic term describing our distinctive style of cooking meats. Les Rosbifs Shiraz is the perfect match for a good old-fashioned Sunday Lunch. Bon appétit, as we say in English!
