Taste the Difference



Lookout_rose_usa_2
Who decided that the best match for red wine is a forkful of red meat, or that white wine went down smoothest with fish? Although I’ll be the first to admit that old habits die hard, breaking away from the stereotypical wine-food pairing ideas opens up a world of new and tantalizing flavours!

Wine pairing is often a contentious topic, particularly because it’s a matter of taste – different strokes for different folks. Some of us prefer to stick to the tried and tested – red with red, white with white, while others prefer more unconventional pairing.

I’ve decided to throw a spanner in the works and suggest some innovative and unconventional food-wine pairing options. I invite all of you to try these at home – at your own risk of course. My palate is somewhat more weathered (read confused) while yours may not all be ready for the adventure!

Try the classically styled Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot blend with a simple dessert. The rich plum and blueberry flavours of the wine with a traditional crème brulee will introduce your tastebuds to a whole new experience. Not that adventurous? Why not try this wine with a smorgasbord of cheese and savoury treats – slightly more traditional but just as scrumptious.

According to Fiona Beckett of www.matchingfoodandwine.com certain wines are specifically created to be enjoyed with spicy foods. Leopard’s Leap Rose, a delicious coupling for a range of edible treats, is a perfect match for a rich Malay Tikka As strange as it may sound, trust me, the flavours could not be more complimentary! The layered fruity flavours in the Rosé gently off-set the Tikka spices leaving you wanting more – a definite suggestion for your next dinner party with friends!

If you have any unconventional pairing suggestions of your own please let us know and we’ll be sure to test them.
