The winemakers give their best wine pairings with your favorite takeaways this weekend

0


We asked some of the country’s top wine specialists what wines they would pair with some of the most popular take-out choices.

Jess Bell, wine marketer at Villa Maria and Nat Christensen, head winemaker at Yealands Wines, have rounded up their top picks for you to be a pizza fan, craving Thai food, or planning to opt out. for a classic fish and chips.

All you need to do is change in your comfort and get ready to order ahead – if Wednesday night is anything to go by, the wait times are going to be long.

Pizza

Nat: My favorite take-out is ‘El Scorcho’ Dominos with a cheese-stuffed crust, paired with our Yealands Merlot – it’s simply delicious. The deep and rich fruity style of Merlot, with a lovely smoky charry character from the oak, pairs wonderfully with this pizza. This wine is resistant to spices and complements the cheese rind beautifully.

Jess: We might have tried making our own pizza dough or even just done our best with store-bought bases, but when my local pizzeria opened I knew what it had to be, a Creamy cheese pizza paired with our artisanal Esk Valley Chardonnay. This Chardonnay is a full-bodied white that gives structure and body to support the richness and density of the pizza.
