Pairings | Cured salmon
Beetroot is one of the few vegetables that pairs better with red wine than with white - not only for the colour though that tends to put the brain on auto-suggest - but its rich, earthy sometimes sweet flavour.
All countries like to boast that their signature grape variety goes with practically everything but in the case of Hungary’s furmint it’s true.
Cured - or marinated - salmon is something you’ll find on a lot of menus these days but what’s the best wine to drink with it?
It’s always good to find a new wine that will take on all comers and I think I’ve found it in dry Furmint.
