Food and Solid Wine Perfect Pairings
Wine is always a good idea, am I right? To have the perfect experience with wine, you must pair it with the right food to get that perfect balance between flavors. Luckily, medium.com’s Food and Wine Pairing Chart has helped us match the best Solid Wine wines to meals that compliment them the most.
1. Bottega Rose Gold + Eggs Benedict
They say that eggs are pretty hard to pair with – but not when you have bubbles! Sparkling wines are best paired with egg-based dishes because the bubbles and the acidity cuts through the egg’s natural richness. Wine + egg pairings usually give off a weird and metallic flavor but with sparkling wines like our Bottega Rose Gold, that won’t be a problem!
2. Montrouge Sauvignon Blanc White + Roast Chicken with Herbed Mushrooms
Dry white wine + light flavors = a bright and refreshing meal!
The fruity citrus notes and slightly herbaceous flavor of the Montrouge Sauvignon Blanc White compliments the succulent and herb-driven flavors of the Roast Chicken with Herbed Mushrooms. This can be your next classic dinner staple or your menu for the next brunch with your friends!
3. Maycas Reserva Especial Chardonnay + Creamy White Sauce Pasta
It’s always best to serve your ripe and silky white wines with mild, buttery or creamy dishes. A hearty pasta dish calls for the elegance that the Maycas Reserva Especial Chardonnay gives off. The silky texture of the wine is the perfect match to the rich creaminess of the pasta. Have this as an inspiration for your next meal!
4. Bottega Petalo Amore Moscato + Classic Apple Pie
Is your sweet tooth longing for dessert? Well, we have the perfect wine pairing for that too! Generally, sweet white wines like the Bottega Petalo Amore Moscato match well with spicy flavors and fruity desserts. When paired with a slice of a Classic Apple Pie, you’ll find yourself wanting for more!
5. Handpicked Selection Mornington Pinot Noir + Oven Roasted Root Vegetables
Delicate and light red wines like the Handpicked Selection Mornington Pinot Noir pair best with starches like most of the root vegetables there are. The sweet and earthy flavors of this dish is complemented by the juicy and silky flavors of this wine. Pairing with vegetables can be tricky but this combination is fool-proof!
6. Chateau La Gravelle Bordeaux Red + Braised Beef
Bordeaux can easily be paired with any dish but red meats and braised dishes are where the maximum flavors are at! The tannins present in this kind of wine work hand in hand with the protein in red meats which results in mouthwatering and scrumptious meals. Have the Chateau La Gravelle Bordeaux Red + Braised Beef pairing for night filled with a symphony of flavors!
7. Antigal Uno Malbec + Lamb Stew
Rich sauces and vibrant dish flavors are meant to be paired with bold and distinct flavored wines like the Malbec. Lighter-flavored dishes should be avoided with this as it can overpower the flavors easily. The persistent finish of the Antigal Uno Malbec goes best with tender and flavorful dishes like the Lamb Stew.
