At the end of the day enjoying a glass or two of wine is pure bliss. 😉
On these cold days, of course, you're looking forward to a delicious hot dinner too and a curry fits perfectly. But it is also important that curry and wine go well together ...
In this Blog, we will be showing you, which curries and wine can be enjoyed together.
1) Vindaloo & Pinot Noir
With a delicious spicy Vindaloo
curry, a Pinot Noir fits best. The Pinot Noir has a rather sweet and fruity taste, which is perfect for reducing the heat in the curry.
Alcohol content: The Pinot Noir also has a slightly lower alcohol content. This is important for a spicy curry, as alcohol increases spice.
2) Butter Chicken & Chardonnay
With a creamy and mild curry, such as the Butter Chicken
, a white wine, such as a chardonnay goes well. The Chardonnay has a fresh aroma of citrus, apple and melon. Tasty 😋
Alcohol: Many Chardonnays have a relatively high alcohol content of at least 13%. A high alcohol content is always beneficial with a mild curry to evoke the aromas and spice.
3) Chicken Korma & Sagiovese
The Sagiovese has a fruity taste of blackberries, blueberries, currants and cranberries.
Tannin: The Sagiovese has a high tannin content. The higher the tannin content, the more the spices in a dish are emphasized. With a mild curry, such as the Chicken Korma, a high tannin content is therefore beneficial.
4) Chicken Tikka & Rose
For Chicken Tikka
, which is rich in coriander and onion and has a creamy sauce, a fruity Rose works the best. The Rose has a combination of a dry white wine and the structure of a bright red wine. This combination complements the aromatic Chicken Tikka and brings out the flavor of the spices.
5) Tandoori & Red Veltliner
Alcohol content: The Red Veltliner is known for its high alcohol content. The high alcohol content is beneficial in this dish, ensuring the many spices are emphasized.
