Thanksgiving Wine Pairing

  • Beaujolais or Pinot Noir are great wines to pair with Thanksgiving dinner. They have a ton of red fruit flavors such as tart red cherry, cranberry, and currant. Beaujolais is kind of herbal with earthy components to it. 
  • Riesling is another great pairing. It has a hint of sweetness which pairs well with many of the blander dishes on a Thanksgiving table. 
  • Runner up wines which would pair well would be Gewurztraminer which is known as the spicy grape… cinnamon, clove, allspice, ginger.
  • Bubbly wine is a great way to start the dinner.
  • Beer is a great pairing with Thanksgiving dinner too.
Riesling

  • Is a good wine for beginners. 
  • It dates back to the 1500’s in Ausace, France. 
  • A young Riesling’s flavor profile can consist of: peaches, nectarine, tangerine, grapefruit and can even smell like rose petals.
  • Older Rieslings can smell like honey or gasoline. The Rieslings which smell like gasoline tend to be the older wines. 
  • The biggest myth about Riesling is it’s all sweet. There are dry Rieslings which aren’t as sweet as late harvest Riesling and Ice Wine.
German Glühwein, Tis the Season

https://www.thekitchn.com/gluhwein-is-the-taste-of-christmas-in-germany-238368

  • Glühwein is German for mulled wine, which is a traditional drink around Christmas. It’s actual translation is “glow wine” which is how you’ll feel after drinking it.
  • It’s a citrusy spiced wine with a shot of rum or amaretto, which smells just like Christmas.
  • Mulled wine is basically just wine, sugar and spice. Some regions add citrus, cinnamon, cloves, almonds or raisins. Also, it’s optional to mix a port, brandy, aquavit or rum with it too.
What are the differences between Pinot Noir, Cabernet, Merlot and Shiraz

  • Pinot Noir originally made in Burgundy, France. Considered the lighter of the red wines. The grape has thinner skins and appeals to most peoples palettes. Cool climate style with brighter fruit such as cranberries and strawberries. Pairs well with seafood and white meats.
  • Cabernet originally came from Bordeaux, France. When planted in warmer climates, such as Chile and California, it becomes easier to distinguish from Merlot. Is known for its long term aging ability. It has smaller grapes and thicker skins than Merlot. Similar flavors to Merlot such as blackberry, cherry, liquorice , chocolate and coffee.
  • Merlot originally came from Bordeaux, France. When planted in warmer climates, such as Chile and California, it becomes easier to distinguish from Cabernet. Has more of an herbal quality and less of the earthiness found in Cabernet. It tastes like blackberries and plums and less like strawberries and cranberries. When grown in a cooler climate it often has a woodsy character to it like cedar or roasted bell peppers. Very well suited for food.
  • Syrah is known for growth in the southern hemisphere such as Australia and South Africa. It’s identical to Syrah which is grown in France and California. Similar thick skins like Cabernet. It doesn’t have as much tannin structure as Cabernet which leads to more fruit forward flavor. Tastes a little like blackberry pie and black pepper quality to it.
