Wining Your Thanksgiving Turkey
Happy Thanksgiving. Serving turkey tonight? Here are some wine suggestions. Turkey’s pretty versatile when it comes to wine matches. As the dark meat possesses a little more flavour than the white, unstuffed, I prefer Chardonnay for the white and Cabernet Sauvignon for the dark. However, if stuffed, this really dictates what works. For traditional sage or herb, Sauvignon Blanc or Cabernet Franc are great. Wild rice works best with unoaked Chardonnay or rosé. If you like chestnut, check out medium-dry Riesling or Viognier. How about Ham? You’ll require a fruity red like Gamay. For oyster, try Muscadet. Sausage sings with Valpolicella and for apple-walnut, medium-dry Riesling or Chenin Blanc. Enjoy!
