5 WINES FOR PAIRING WITH MEAT
Every kind of meat has a special flavour, and that’s something you need to remember when picking out a wine to go with it. Red wine doesn’t always need to be your go-to choice, which is why we want to give you 5 recommendations for wines to pair with meat and keep your dinner parties on everybody’s lips.
WHICH WINES PAIR WELL WITH PORK?
New gastronomic trends are inspiring people to experiment and bend the rules. The myth that pork only goes with red wine is out the door. If you get the right white wine with a good sour hit, you’ll find a perfect pairing for smoked pork dishes or ones with a lot of spices and strong flavours.
Our wine Coto de Imaz Reserva Blanco is a great option for pairing with this kind of red meat. Respecting the fruity and floral aromas of the Chardonnay variety, it has a lingering smoothness and aromatic complexity blending honey notes with a delicious vanilla aroma. You just have to try it!
What’s more, if you want to whip up some roast or BBQ pork ribs, an amazing pairing would be a rosé made with Tempranillo grapes. You’ll be blown away, especially if the recipe includes BBQ sauce. Our El Coto Selección Viñedos Rosado is a wine for pairing with pork that we recommend if you’re looking to surprise people with a flavour explosion.
VEAL: BETTER WITH YOUNG REDS!
The type of meat and what you do with it should influence what wine you pick. So, if you're thinking of cooking up some roast veal or even a stew, the best match for it would be young, smooth red wines. This type of wine would also go perfectly with meat of this kind, either flame grilled, seasoned or barbecued.
Our 875 m Tinto is the pairing you need to create the perfect flavour combination. It’s an intense and refreshing wine made with Tempranillo grapes. It’s a good sour hit and delicate aromas of cherries and red fruit. These flavours also go with mocha and cocoa. Everyone will be asking for more with this pairing.
WINES FOR PAIRING WITH BEEF
When pairing wine and meat, the drink also helps to cleanse our palates after each bit, which means that each bit we take feels like the first. That’s why it’s so important to pick the appropriate wine. The flavour we get from barbecued beef combined with its fat content makes it the perfect pairing for red wines.
Our Coto de Imaz Gran Reserva and Coto Real Reserva are our star recommendations for pairing with beef. Both of these wines are made with Tempranillo grapes. However, the first of the two stands out because it combines it with Graciano grapes and is rich in aromas of red fruit and nuts. A great wine for special occasions.
