Wine & Food

It’s an age old question. How to pair food with wine?
Well today I bring you a new wine company that is all about answering that question for you.
It is called the pairing collection, and has a wide range of white wines and red wines.
It tells you what to pair with what food right on the bottle!
So here’s a little bit of history about the company for you.

The pairing collection wanted to make it easy for you to pair your wine with your food without worrying if its right or wrong. Whether it be a nice refreshing white wine with some seafood or a big bold red wine with a nice juicy steak; you can’t go wrong with this wine collection.

Now onto the wine! I have two white wines and two reds to bring you today.

First on the list is Salmon & Trout, which is a mix of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon. This is a refreshing white wine with very low acidity and a bright yellow color with green highlights. The flavors of this wine are tropical fruit and lemon and green apple.
On the nose it’s lemongrass and pear. It has a light and subtle finish.

I would pair this wine with grilled chicken and stuffed peppers.

Second on the list is Lobster & Shrimp, which is 100% Muscadet. It’s the perfect white wine to enjoy on these hot summer days and nights. With a pale brilliant yellow color and low acidity it pairs well with any food. Flavors are a hint of lemon and watermelon on the nose you get a little hint of green pepper. I would pair this wine with smoked salmon and pasta salad.

Now onto the red wines!

First one on the red wine list is Chicken & Turkey, which is a mix of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Carignan. This is a big bold red wine that packs a punch of flavor, with bold notes and deep red color of black cherry and spicy pepper and licorice. On the nose leather and current.

I would pair this wine with BBQ steak and Veggie stew.

Last on the list is Chops & Burgers. It is a mix of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a really good red wine to go with any kind of meat, from steak to chicken to pork chops, with subtle but bold structure and deep red color and flavors of blackberry
and tobacco on the nose vanilla and fruity notes.

I would pair this wine with spicy Indian dishes or BBQ Steak.

So what are you making for dinner?
