Peixes e vinhos

Since going all the way up to the on-site restaurant favorite is not being able, a lot of people are taking more risks in the kitchen. It may be that it is not always the result will be very good, but it's worth a try.

How to pair your dish with a good bottle of wine with no hints of a sommelier? The harmonizing is an art, and like all art, you don't have a definitive rule, but a few tips can help you make the right choice for you.

Harmonize the wine with the cheese, pasta, or pizza, it may not be quite as complicated, but that's what happens when we have fish, shellfish, or seafood? Well, here are a few basic tips so as not to commit serious mistakes.

The analysis of the preparation of the dish

So the harmonisation is to be balanced, you have to look at all the spices and seasonings used in the preparation of the dish, and even the temperature of the plate, and the temperature of the environment of the time in which it was served.

That is, the same plate can be in line with the wines that are very different, depending on the terms of the service, and the small changes in the way they prepare it.

The first tip of thumb is: the fish and seafood are generally a good company for white wines or red wines, soft. In case of doubt, the Sauvignon Blanc (a more fruity, citrus, and fresh produce) or a Chardonnay (a more creamy and full-bodied) are safe choices.

But, you have to keep in mind that each and every producer makes a wine with characteristics that are different and unique. Therefore, a wine is never the same, the same as it has been created with the same type of grape.

In addition to this, the harmonization can be done through affinity or through contrast. This means that, on some occasions, a wine that is powerful and packed with tannin, it can match well with the delicacy of a dish with (usually) mild as those made with fish.

Fits fish, and wine

To find out which wine is best to accompany the dish, it is necessary that you have been weighed in a few factors. The fish is served fresh, smoked, fried, baked, or grilled?

Then, what is the type of sauce that will go with it. The sauce with the butter, ask for a wine that is totally different from fish, whose sauce, mild olive oil, palm oil, for example).

Oh, and don't forget the type of fish that will be ready for it. A salmon is a lot different than a filet-of-sole, which holds very little resemblance to that of a tuna fish. The fish, the more fatty foods require a wine with more body. The fish, the more light, fruity wines.

The lighter dishes go well with white and sparkling wines more acidic, but the more light you can ask for a white wine or a smooth red such as Pinot Noir. Vinho verde can be a lot given most of the Portuguese, as some of us are prepared with cod fish.

To sum it up: if the dish is light and does not carry many of the trappings, opt for a white one. The sushi and sashimi can be combined with the sparkling brut. Already some of the dishes that have ingredients with more heavy with coconut milk, palm oil, etc.) should be better with a white wine or a red wine are not a lot of power (Merlot or Pinot Noir).

Depending on the producer, a Cabernet Sauvignon, you may also be a good choice. Just to avoid wines that are more potent. Grapes, such as Malbec or Tannat are usually not a good choice, since it is present on the palate, obscuring the flavor and nuance of the fish.

The dishes made with shellfish

Usually, the dishes are made with shellfish tend to be rich, even if your preparation is simple. Squid and octopus are the most popular. Usually they are prepared with sauces and soft, although the calamari and chips are always a popular option, and the scallops are gaining a following.

As to the molluscs, they are generally light-weight, the next most secure is to choose a wine with enough freshness to provide you with them. As a result, the sparkling wines, the Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio are surefire.

In the case of the squid cooked in a white wine might be an outgoing, interesting, and not to be restricted to white people.

Wine and seafood

It may be because the harmonies are more complex, because of the delicacy of the lobster can be contrasted in much the flavor of a shrimp, a native of são paulo, to cite just one example.

As a rule of thumb consider the following: if the sauce is a white cheese-based or buttery, opt for a Chardonnay. The chance of going wrong is almost non-existent.

If the soak is the most powerful, with pepper, choose a wine that is fresh and floral. The Riesling and the ever present Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of more than 90% of the time. But, it does not dispose of all the roses. They often have some of the characteristics of both white and red wines.


Harmonies as well as personal

As you can see, the choices are dependent on a number of factors that are related to the preparation of the food. However, some of the other factors that need to be taken into consideration as well. Foremost among them is up to your personal taste.

Many times, the preference for the producer, type of grape or country, you can turn that in for something much less obvious, and by no means the least interesting and enjoyable.

For example: Spanish wines go very well with a number of dishes made with cod fish and other seafood. Try it with a paella.

One more thing, very important thing to know is that the taste of a wine can change a great deal depending on the dish served. There are cases where a wine may not appeal when you drink alone and you turn to gold when it is drunk to accompany the dish, for sure.

And, even though it might sound strange, it is not at all uncommon.

So, the tips in this post can help you, but the experience is always the best way to find out which combination appeals most to your taste.

Stay safe, and enjoy your meal.
