This Halloween, The Question Is: Trick Or Treat, Dry Or Sweet?
Wines Tasted in this Episode:
Dr Siemens Riesling Auslese 2007, $20. This sweet Riesling pairs well with fruity/sour/citrus flavors. Try this wine with a Lemonhead or lemon Sour Patch Kids for surprisingly delicious results!
Achaval Ferrer Malbec 2015, $20. Keri was shocked at how well this wine pairs with Tootsie Rolls, but other candies in the category like Twix or Snickers may be better off with Sherry or a Spanish Tempranillo. Experiment and find your favorite flavors!
Ramos Pinto RP20 20 year Tawny Port, $70. Port and Almond Joy? Sorry, Portugal, but this pairing is amazing! This was Keri and Carole’s favorite pairing of the bunch. The coconut in the Almond Joy was amplified to totally new levels.
La Caravelle Rose Champagne, $40. Does Champagne pair with everything? There’s only one way to find out: By trying Champagne with every food, including Halloween candy. Happy Hallowine!
