If you’re looking for the ultimate wine to pair with your festive selections, look no further than dry-style Rosé.

Modern, sophisticated, and equally appealing to lovers of both red and white wines, its diversity and sheer deliciousness makes it a wonderful wine to match with almost any kind of cuisine.

Here are some of our favourite pairings!

PAIR WITH STYLE

While Rosé can pair well with any food, the trick to finding the right Rosé for the right food is by looking at the red or white equivalents.

For instance, very light and dry Rosé will pair with most anything that suits dry white wines – think light pastas and white rice dishes, as well as salads and seafood (particularly shellfish).

Bolder, more full-bodied Rosé wines (like those made from Shiraz) on the other hand are a great match for rich and spicy cuisines such as Indian curries or Mexican dishes.

When it comes to cheese, a similar principle applies.

Tart, tangy acidic goat’s cheese will pair well with light, dry-style Rosé, whereas a gooey (not runny!) cheese like Camembert is a wonderful match for fruiter styles with restrained sweetness.

Mature, harder cheese on the other hand, such as aged Cheddar, are ideal with the more savoury style Rosé wines like those made from Cabernet.
