Description

Umami-Rich and Savory dishes pair well with light, fruity, and earty red wines.

Beaujolais or Beaujolais Nouveau are good choices.

If you go for a Pinot Noir it should be unoaked (French, Italian, or German).

Don't forget that many Italian red wines go very well with savory food. A chilled, lightly sparling Lambrusco is an interesting try.

Asian dishes also pair very well with fruity Rosés.

Vegetable dishes can crash with red wine. They pair best with green and herbal whites.

Sauvignon Blanc is known to match Asian food, especially those from New Zealand. But there are many other intresting white wines in the same category.

Spicy or Sweet and Sour dishes pair best with wines with some residual sugar.

Riesling Spätlese is often the preferred choice, because it has both sugar to handle spices, and acidity to handle the other flavors.

An Off-Dry Rosé, or an Off-Dry Sparkling will also do the job.

What about an Off-Dry Sparkling Rosé!!!

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
