PROVENCE ROSÉ IS A PERFECT PAIRING FOR THE FOOD TREND OF THE YEAR!

We all know that a region’s wines generally pair well with its local foods, as the two have evolved together to complement one another. But while Provence rosé is an excellent accompaniment to Mediterranean dishes, it is also a uniquely versatile food pairing wine that can match a world of cuisines. Its dry, refreshing character and good citrus and floral notes make it equally enjoyable with traditional French cheeses, Spanish paella, Indian curry or Japanese sushi…

It is no surprise that Provence rosé is also an increasingly popular pairing for Asian dishes, as its flavour profile means that it can complement delicate aromas while also standing up to the spiciest of foods

If you love Asian cuisine but have had your fill of Thai curry and Chinese noodles, then it’s time you discovered the food trend of the moment; Korean cuisine. Flavoursome and often fiery, it has a lighter feel than Thai dishes while maintaining the range of sweet, salty, sour, and spicy notes that characterise Asian foods. With its array of traditional banchan and panchan, Korean cuisine also encourages a convivial tapas style of sharing.

When it comes to matching wine with spicy food it’s best to choose a dry wine, which is what Provence rosé is renowned for. Provence rosé also marries clean crispness with fruity fullness, a combination that works well with Korean favourites including Bulgogi or Galbi (grilled marinated beef or pork), Bunchan (side dishes), Kimchi and Namul (vegetables), or Jeon (pancakes).
