A SUITABLE MATCH
Experiencing wine and food the right way
Bringing a bottle of wine to a gathering can create a memorable dining experience for everyone. With its good balance of acid, tannin, and fruity flavors, wine can awaken the palate, adding further to the diners’ enjoyment of each course. It also adds a delicious sophistication to any meal, whether while you’re on a food hop or even in the middle of a random day, when you’re simply feeling fancy.
When at Mamou’s, try their cracked cheese with fuet and honey, a bottle of Marques de Caceres Rosado on the side, and dwell on the perfect blend of sweet, sour, and savory flavors, and the rich contrast between acidity and sweetness. Famous for their Spanish dishes, Barcino offers a selection of fine meats. When here, prep your palate with a sip of a light-bodied red, such as their Beronia Reserva, to balance out the natural juices of their Salpicao Tenderloin, one of the best among Barcino’s Carnes selection. Going for a light midday meal? Go for something wholesome with a salad of your choice. Give your greens a little kick by pairing them with a white wine that complements the tanginess of their vinaigrettebased dressing; the Layer Cake Chardonnay 2012 is a nice addition to a refreshing mix of greens, fruits, and peanuts. Visit Ayala Malls The 30th at 30 Meralco Avenue, Pasig City to try these wine pairings.
