WHAT TO DRINK WITH STREET­FOOD

Woolworths TASTE - - Table Talk -

Flavour-packed street­food, such as burg­ers, chicken wings and na­chos, de­serves to be en­joyed with a glass of some­thing good while you’re lick­ing your fingers. Here are some ideas from the pros

SPICY CHICKEN WINGS + GEWÜRZTRAMINER

“The resid­ual sugar in the wine will com­ple­ment the spices used on the wings beau­ti­fully.”

– Pearl Oliver

PORK BURGER + CHARDON­NAY OR SEMIL­LON

“A cit­rusy, wooded, cool-cli­mate Chardon­nay or Semil­lon will cut through the rich­ness of the pork and com­ple­ment the gua­camole, too.” – Athule Kamanga

PREGO ROLL + ALBARIÑO “Gar­lic is one of the tough­est in­gre­di­ents to match as it can be over­whelm­ing and kill the wine com­pletely. I like the New­ton John­son Albariño, which has fresh lime that will tame the gar­lic.”

– Joseph Dhafana

MAC ‘N’ CHEESE + CHENIN BLANC

“This is a per­fect duo. The fruiti­ness and acid­ity of the Chenin Blanc will work well with the creami­ness of the cheese sauce.” – Non­du­miso Pikashe

BUNNY CHOW + RIESLING “The spices and heat of the food will cer­tainly meet their match with the bold fruit of this fine grape.” – Aubrey Ng­cungama

NA­CHOS + CHARDON­NAY “The raw tomato in the salsa adds acid to the food. Break it down with a cit­rusy Chardon­nay, which also works well with the gua­camole and sour cream – Chardon­nay al­ways loves creami­ness.” – Athule Kamanga
