Three Ideas for Matching Food and Wine This Summer

As the warm weather kicks in, it's time to start entertaining. According to Vogue, part of being a great host is knowing what combination of wine and food to serve guests. Try pairing these dishes and sparkling wines:

Beetroot salad with vintage brut rose

Crisp beetroot served in perfect circles, topped with goats curd and drizzled with pureed carrot makes for a simple yet elegant dish. Team with a slightly sweet rose for a match made in heaven.

Green tea pannacotta with Chandon cuvee riche

Green tea pannacotta makes a nice change from the traditional vanilla bean and teamed with white chocolate, ginger and pandan syrup you've got a winner. Paired with a glass of Chandon cuvee riche, made in a similar way to French champagne, and you've got a refreshing combination.

Kangaroo with sparkling pinot shiraz

Kangaroo is a meat that will always get your guests talking when done right. Rich in flavour, kangaroo works perfectly with a pumpkin purée, crisp potato and mushrooms. It's even better when finished off with a sparkling pinot shiraz.
