    Barbeque Season! Food Pairing & Wine Choice | Watson's Wine

    Barbeque Season! Food Pairing & Wine Choice

    It’s that time of the year again – the barbeque season is around the corner! Are you excited about grilled seafood, burgers, vegetables, lamb chops and other tasty snacks? Let’s check out how we can enjoy barbequed food with wine!

    Barbecued Seafood and Fishball X Champagne/Riesling

    Speaking of the most popular food during the barbecue, seafood must be on the list – white ribbon eel, shrimp, scallop, clam and various kinds of fishes are some of our favourite choices. Simply seasoned with sea salt, black pepper or garlic, it can bring out the fresh sweetness of seafood! You may elevate the flavours by pairing them with a Champagne with the aromas of lemon and apricot, and its good acidity could reduce the feel of greasiness. A Riesling with natural high acidity would be a terrific choice too, its flora and honey characters would match perfectly with fishballs coated with honey.

    Grilled Steaks/ Lamb Chops X Shiraz

    To enjoy juicy, tender, and mouthwatering steaks/ lamb chops, Shiraz from new world wine regions can complement the rich taste of red meat. Shiraz has layers of blackberry and black currant, followed by the notes of chocolate from toasted oak barrels. The gentle acidity and tannins are a good combination with steaks and lamb.

    Tasty Chicken wings X Riesling

    With no doubt, chicken wings, usually seasoned in different flavours, such as spicy or honeyed, are the must-have for barbeque. Pairing with some refreshing Riesling, where the flavours of apple, tangerine, apricot and honey can neutralize its savouriness and ease the spiciness, making them the perfect wine to go with grilled (and spicy) grilled food.

    Recommend for you: Rosé – The best choice for barbecue

    Combining the beauty of both red and white wines, Rosé is not only refreshing but also full of fruity flavours. Pop the Rosé into the fridge before serving, its tannins bring out the freshness of seafood, and perfect to enjoy in hot weather! If it’s hard to prepare various wine types for one occasion, Rosé is what you may go for!
