Most people choose their wine according to their food. With rose it`s different as you can drink it as an appetizer as well as for your main course.
Rose pairing with starters
Rose pairing with the main course
Let`s continue with the main course. Grilled fish in its different variations is a perfect match with rose as the aromas of red and citrus fruits with a slight salty flavour in the wine perfectly complement the salty flavour of tuna and salmon ceviche, grilled bass or sea bream.
At the same time you can pair a vitello tonato, grilled lamb, grilled rabbit as well as veal chops with a rose wine due to the lean meat in combination with the acidity and fruit flavour of the wine. Pairings we particularly liked are:
Ceviche of Dorade
Vitello Tonato, Petits farcis provencaux
Veal Chops with olives
Grilled aubergines & tomatoes with grilled lamb
Chirashi of tuna and salmon
Tapenade of green and black olives, homous with grilled sardines
Depending on the temperature at which you serve the rose you can control the aroma of the wine and therefore fine tune the food pairing.
