Food & Wine pairing note from Rachel
Grenache blanc: Still learning about this wine (tough job, I know). When I first tried this wine I couldn't get over how much it tasted like Korean Melon; so much so that I had to buy a Korean Melon and try it side by side. It has that beautiful melon/fruity quality matched by very floral notes, but neither is in your face. What I've found with this wine is that it works very well with things that are just slightly sweet - cheese with honey or jam, fresh fruit, fresh tomatoes. AND - it also works with things that have a LOT of spices - curries, satay, pho, spiced meat. Since this is a dry, high alcohol wine - avoid anything too spicy (we tried, worked better than we thought, but amped up the alcohol effect!) and anything too sweet.
Lil Inky: This wine has been, and continues to be, our 'take-out star' - meaning you can pair it with your quick/easy take-away meals and elevate the occasion very quickly with this bottle of wine. Great with pizza (both red and white sauce versions), burgers, fried chicken, birria, stir-fries, and more. Obviously, even better if these are home-made fairs, but we love the idea of this bottle of wine helping you enjoy a quick meal on a busy weeknight!
Inky: I'm not just making this recommendation because this is our Reserve Malbec, or because it's more expensive, but because it's the best way to showcase this wine: Steak. It's not very creative or unique, but there's a reason it works. This wine is perfectly balanced, big wine with lots of tannins and acid and alcohol - it needs big, fatty protein to shine. Would also be great with pork belly, lamb chops and for plant based folks out there try with mushrooms, especially great with some sort of black pepper rub.
