Food & Wine Guide

wine-guide-beef

Red Wine

Shiraz is a perfect match, but any low tannin red wine will fit the bill such as Cabernet-Sauvignon based wines. Shiraz is also great with BBQ’d sausages and steaks.

View wine specials

White Wine

Generally red wine is drunk with beef, but Chardonnay is a perfect pairing for the creamy sauce and egg noodles in beef stroganoff for example.

Riesling works well with Roast Lamb, and Chardonnay is a perfect pairing for lightweight lamb dishes such as sweetbreads and creamy casseroles.

wine-guide-turkey

Red Wine

White wine is generally better suited but if you really want red then buy a mature wine to ensure the tannins have softened adequately, such as a mature Cabernet Sauvignon. A Sparkling Shiraz also compliments the Turkey with Cranberry combination.

Rich Chardonnays or heavy Rieslings pair well with the full-bodied flavours of this bird.

wine-guide-chicken

Red Wine

For Roast Chicken with all the trimmings, try a mature Cabernet Sauvignon. For chicken casseroles you can also try a light bodied Merlot, Beaujolais or Pinot Noir.

View wine specials

White Wine

The overall winner would have to be Chardonnay as it’s not too overpowering for the delicate flavour of chicken.

wine-guide-seafood

Red Wine

Red is not an obvious choice for seafood but light reds such as Pinot Noir, Chianti, Sangiovese and a full-bodied Rosé can work with meaty, big-flavoured fish such as tuna, salmon and swordfish, especially when cooked in a rich, tomato sauce.

View wine specials

White Wine

Great choices are Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon or Riesling. Seafood dishes are usually light-flavoured, so it is the way in which it has been cooked that should determine your choice of wine. Sparkling white wine works perfectly with heavier dishes such as smoked salmon, lobster and oysters.
