A Surprising Wine Pairing Espua Tapas Essentials cured meats are now available in Canada.
The term tapas originated in Spain meaning cover or lid of bread or meat to keep your wine glass free of dust from the original dirt roads. Espua offers some 17 primarily cured meat tapas with several non cured meat tapas requiring a minute in the microwave pandora charms australia official before being served. The Espua booklet provided to me gives a product description, ingredients, serving suggestions, and nutritional information. Unfortunately there are no serving suggestions as to what wine or beer might best suit the tapas although I do see a glass of beer and what appears to be a glass of cava in one of the pictures. A great gift for the foodie cheap pandora gold charms in the family or the wine and beer expert who you rely on to tell you what to drink with these tapas. Photo courtesy of Espua Cured Meats. The tapas were originally released in 2015 and are currently available in Longo's, Freshco, Metro, and some Loblaw's stores. Prices are set by the retailers and generally range from $3 $7. For more about Espua check the website. Cured meats and wine. Red or white? Traditionally one pairs based on colour and weight. As most cured meats are red or brown one theoretically should match with a red wine. However, as many cured meats have fatty contents, one might consider a wine with some acidic content to cut through the fat. Generally speaking, white wines are more acidic than red wines, so they might be a better match than reds, however the tannins in red wine can equally cut through and soften the proteins in meat. I rather marvelled a few years ago how some Umbrian Chardonnay was a perfect match for Italian cured meat. Photo courtesy of Espua Cured Meats. Perhaps a first step is to crack open a Rueda white from Spain and take it on its own and pair it with some Espua. The Beronia Rueda is medium gold in colour and, on the nose, full of apple, pear, pineapple, upside down cake, and lemon, with a dash of nutmeg. On the palate, subtle but noticeable acids. Citrus, marmalade, gold pandora beads and bacon notes. It has the acids to cut through fat. Medium finish and a rather good match for foods that need the acid. But with cured meats? With the Espua Barcelona Salami does it work? The salami is both fatty and meaty with a slight hotness, but it's more smooth than fiery. Earthy and generally smooth, the Rueda compliments the salami. A beautiful match and rather against the rules. A white with a dark meat. It creates almost a banana like match with the salami. Again we try the Espua original Olot Salami with its obvious high fat content with the Rueda. The salami is very slick and smooth and very fatty with a slight spicy burn. The Rueda stands up very well and ends up with a rather peachy flavour. Not off at all. White wine with fatty sausage. Bring it on. Breaking the rules. One more try of the Rueda with the Espua Original Salami, which has a yeasty and oaky taste with a little bite. I am thinking Zinfandel/Primitivo with this. The silver charms for pandora bracelet Rueda is a bit off here, leading to a bitter and grapefruit finish.
Can we say the simpler and fattier the meat the better a Rueda is? The Espua Serrano Ham is nutty in flavour and, while I am thinking Pinot Noir, the Rueda compliments it beautifully. Nothing is out of synch here. A perfect match.
