THE ULTIMATE BAREFOOT WINE FOOD MATCHING GUIDE – THE REDS, THE WHITES, THE PINK!
When picking spices and seasonings as well as food and wine pairing, red wine prefers rich flavours!
Barefoot Cabernet Sauvignon
Traditional in taste, this big red has bold flavours. The Cabernet Sauvignon is best paired with foods that compliment strong flavours. Beef, lamb, rib eye or other red meats are good wine pairings. Enjoy with a meze of hard cheese such as cheddar, smoked, cured meats, as well as tomato pasta dishes and even cheeseburgers.
Traditional Malbec is dry with a jammy taste, similar to Cabernet Sauvignon. This plush wine is full and gorgeous, bursting with characteristics of thick juicy blackberries, currants and caramel. You’ll notice a hint of toasted oak which means it’ll compliment smoked meats as well as caramelized onion. Rich mushroom pasta, red meats, pulled pork, bbq ribs, salsa and strong Stilton are great foods to pair with Malbec!
This popular classic is rich in cherry, boysenberry and plum aromas. Enjoy the warm chocolatey, mocha finish with a smoky vanilla-oak aftertone. A medium merlot is the most versatile out of the reds and can be paired nicely with all red, smoked and cured meats. Merlot can also complement swordfish, grilled tuna, roasted chestnuts and all poultry.
A dry white will love tasty citrus notes like sharp sorbet or lemon meringue pie.
Barefoot Sauvignon Blanc
The perfect dry, white wine bursting with fruity notes including honeydew melon, nectarine and peach. Fresh flavours like green vegetables, crisp apples, citrus fruits as well as potatoes, pasta and even chips all go well with Sauvignon Blanc. Enjoy a chilled glass with roasted turkey, smoked fish like salmon, salty oysters and feta or goat’s cheese salad.
Barefoot Buttery Chardonnay
Chardonnays have rich flavours and are easy to enjoy, but Barefoot’s Buttery Chardonnay takes it to the next level. This buttery chardonnay is creamy and smooth with delectable notes of vanilla, honeyed peach, and baked apple. It’s the perfect addition to meals which include soft and hard cheese, chicken, pork, salmon, shellfish and potatoes. Enjoy chardonnay with creamy pastas, roasted veg and hearty lasagne.
Barefoot Pinot Grigio
Pinot Grigio is a light-bodied, floral wine, you’ll be able to taste the tart green apple, fruity citrus and peachy undertones. Fish and white meats are great food pairings for Pinot Grigio. Enjoy with poultry, spicy pasta, cheese pizza and green veg.
Rosé wine is often fruity and sweeter than red and white. This is why, when choosing wine pairing food, a taming rosé can take on strong flavours. If seasoning, choose cumin, chilli, paprika or tarragon.
Barefoot White Zinfandel
Enjoy a glass with spicy tandoori Indian and Asian food, along with salty bacon, grapes, mild cheese and cured meat. Most seafood and shellfish can also be paired with the sweetness of White Zinfandel.For those with a sweet tooth, you’re options are endless. Enjoy a glass paired with Eton Mess, strawberry trifle, apple crumble, caramel, sticky toffee pudding and currant buns.
