Unbeatable Parings with Rosé Wine

 TAGS:undefined

Autumn is just around the corner and nothing is more refreshing than a good rosé wine in your balcony feeling the sweet evening breeze. The most ambitious rosés can be paired with various foods that come along with the season. Here are some great advices.

Rosé wine + Meat

Although this wine fits perfectly with fish, pairing it with meat it’s also a very viable option. That is why it is recommended to mix it with pinky sausages and stronger red meats.

On the other hand, if you are having pork for dinner, you can go with a Monastrell rosé. Its fruity taste goes well with barbecued ribs and with any grilled meat.

Seafood

The purest rosé wine is the perfect choice for any seafood. Especially fruity wines because they intensify the powerful flavor of certain seafood.

Fish

In addition to white, rosé wine is one of the best options for all kinds of fish, preferably white. Just pick your favorite one and be delighted.

Cheese

Rosé wine and cheese are good allies. It is recommended to add goat cheese, camembert or brie to enjoy the special similarity of both flavors.

Pasta or salads

Fresh foods like salads, pastas, and even rice can be paired perfectly with rosé because they have a unique softness and freshness that make the dishes a lot tastier.

Fruits

Whereas you are having a delicious dessert or a fruit salad, rosé wine will go very well.

Tuscan rosé wines are better served with pasta and appetizers such as crostini, which is little pieces of toasted bread accompanied by tomato or pâté. Australian wines pair well enough with milder cheeses while Spanish rosés go well with fish and certain meats.

Rosé wine is best if it’s cold, but not too much, so we must take into account the temperature. Really it must be something hotter than white wine cooler than a red wine.

Christmas Pairing

For this Christmas we will have the opportunity to eat special dishes and drinks that goes well with them. Christmas gifts like hams, nougat, soups, stews, calves … everything is ready for your guests. But surely you?ve wondered sometimes what kind of drink goes better with each meal, especially for these dates. Here are some Christmas pairings.

At this time, it is normal to have long meals. That is, you usually start with a aperitif with delicacies such as ham or clams. It’s best to offer a welcome cocktail, a smooth martini or start dinner or meal with a glass of white wine is also low graduation. While some chamomiles are reserved for the end of the meal, they are also recommended for sausage ?based snacks and seafood.

For salads, pasta or fish, white wine is perfect, specially the Verdejo and Albariño type. For seafood, strongly acidic or fruity rosé give a special flavor to the dish. For soup or broth, white wine goes well, some sherry can also be recommended.
The bream is a traditional dish of this holiday in many parts of Spain. To accompany it, white wine is still the main protagonist, but especially with less acidity. It is also valid for white meats such as turkeys or partridges.

For roasted meat it is better to opt for the reds. In this case the young, fruity red wines retain the flavor of the spices that accompany these meats. The food is not over, the desserts can be long. For sweets such as chocolate, red wine from the same meat may be fine, but if we move to the nougat, comes the turn of muscatel, sweeter wines, almonds or hazelnuts liquors, and young cava should put the loop end to the gathering.
