Wine and Shellfish Pairings
Shellfish and wine go hand-in-hand, but with such a variety of shellfish dishes out there, finding the perfect wine match can be overwhelming. From Champagne to Viognier, we've created a handy guide suggestions to inspire you find the right wine to go with your shellfish!
Chilli garlic butter tiger prawns - a Gruner Veltliner will be able to match the complex flavours of this dish, as will softer mediterranean wines such as the Kyperounda Petritis from Cyrpus.
Lobster Thermidor - an oaky chardonnay or special bottle of fizz such as the Brazilian Cave Geisse Brut or the Slovenian Istenic Prestige Extra Brut.
Crab - best for tasting with a creamy and alluring Viognier.
Oysters - excellent with a crisp dry Furmint.
Moules-Frites - try a characterful Viognier or the Bibo Runge Riesling.
Scallops and Clams - a fresh zesty Albariño or Vinho Verde.
