The Llanito Easter Wine and Food Pairing

0

The week is done, the kids are free and it’s time to gather with the family. Some head out to the infamous strip where crowds gather, wine is spilled, and are consumed all around, all whilst moving to the rhythmic beat of the live music. Sounds like a familiar Maundy Thursday?

As this moves along we begin to prepare for the feast of Easter 🐣but what better way to celebrate the fun, frivolity and gluttonous events than pairing our favourite llanito meals with some delicious wine.

Let the subtle taste of the French, Arrogant Frog, Pinot Noir, complement every bite of cheesy stuffed courgettes your mama has lovingly made. With its delicate aromas and long lasting finish, berries, soft spice and a hint of vanilla…it’ll make the most perfect pair.

A Rich and Creamy Chardonnay from Nappa Valley, California for your spicy nutty snails. This Chardonnay is a fantastic match for those caracoles. Bright fruit flavours, creamy vanilla accents and the softer, more elegant flavour profiles that come from malolactic fermentation. Just wish that every Chardonnay could be this RICH and CREAMY!

From the famous family of Castello Banfi in the fields of Italy, a sweet and bubbly Moscato d’Asti Sciandor is the best way to soothe the flavours of that Torta de Acelga. Along with its shiny straw yellow colour, enriched with aromatic scents that recall flowers, citrus fruits, candied fruits and raisins. The taste is delicate, sweet and persistent with the resounding flavour of fresh grapes. The perfect solution with sweet or savoury pastries, specially those with cheese in it 😉

Finally, a crisp Pinot Grigio Blush, full of elegance and its typical fruitiness, reminiscent of ripe pears and peaches. The perfect wine to help drink down the one, or five bollos de hornazo you’re getting ready to devour! It couldn’t get more llanito than that, eh?
