South American Reds - Pairings?
Our monthly wine club is tasting South American red wines this week. I'm in charge of the food (appetizers/desserts) - any suggestions or recipes I should pay attention to? Thanks!
Depends on the Reds. Malbecs are really bold and can hold up to fatty meats. Carmenere is a bit less big and can go well with more delicate meats and veg. For desert I would go for chocolate. Berries and cherries would be fun as well.
Hard to go wrong with a Torrontés ( indigenous Argentinean grape from Salta province way north, close to the Bolivian border ).
Cosecha de Otoño from Weinert, 100% late harvest Sauvignon Blanc, absolutely amazing. Highly recommended. Available in the US.
OOPS! Sorry, I just noticed the "red" part.
Oh well... next time you know.
