Matching pizza and wines - BBQ Chicken
Pizza - what can possibly make it any better when it already holds pride of place as the best food in the world? Wine of course.
This little series will try to suggest some wines that will make your next pizza even better.
Let's start with BBQ Chicken. There is a distinct smoky flavour to BBQ sauce that really packs a punch on pizza. We find that a Malbec is great to pair with this pizza. The fruit is forward and counters the sweetness in the sauce quite nicely.
If you're adventurous, try to find a Touriga Nacional (from Portugal). It works equally well, and did you know that the official fauna symbol for Portugal is.... the rooster!
