Food and wine pairing is considered by many to be an art form, the truth is, you can eat pretty much whatever you want while drinking whichever wine you want. Here are a few of our favourite pairings for our wines.
This rich wine goes perfectly with smoked meats, roast lamb or beef, firm cheeses such as aged cheddar or harder cheeses similar to Pecorino. This is a perfect wine for a cosy dinner party with friends.
Tends to be a more tannic wine, and is known for being full-bodied. These attributes leave your mouth feeling drier, which makes it perfect for pairing with fattier, chewier cuts of steak like porterhouse and ribeye.
Think “powerful” when pairing Petit Verdot with food, with its explosions of flavours, robust acid and tannin levels, lends itself to flavoursome foods ... Barbecues, rich meat dishes and matured cheeses.
Is the default variety of white for most people, thanks to its versatility, Sauvignon Blanc can be enjoyed with almost any seafood dish, it’s crisp, refreshing and versatile.
When considering a match made in heaven, Chardonnay and shellfish are all you really need to think about. Of course, this delicious wine goes with other dishes too including chicken, pork and soft cheeses like triple brie. Though, Chardonnay shines the most when it’s paired with shellfish like shrimp, lobster and crab.
Often compared to rose petals, lychees and Turkish delight, Gewurztraminer is the wine world’s most exotic grape variety so what on earth do you pair with it? The white wine pairs remarkably well with hot Thai or Asian dishes. A decidedly sweet bottle complements desserts such as ice-cream and apple pie.
Moscato is sweet, so ideally you should pair it with foods possessing opposite flavour profiles such as spicy, sour, salty, bitter. While its sweet fruity essence can make it difficult to pair with a main course, Moscato is perfect with appetizers, dessert, and alone as an aperitif.
