Food And Wine Matching With Waitrose

Wines to match fish can be a lot more varied than you might think; different tastes and textures provide you with an exciting range of options for delicious pairings.

One such pairing is salmon matched with a rich, oaked white, especially if there's a creamy sauce, or you're serving it with buttery potatoes. A great example would be a rich South African Chardonnay, or for a truly elegant choice try a delicious white Burgundy.

If the dish has more herbs and a lighter touch, it's worth moving to a lighter style of wine. Italian whites are often brilliant with herbs, such as a Pinot Grigio or Soave and for full on decadence why not try lobster with the new modern classic Albariño, from Rías Baixas in north-western Spain. It combines white peaches and flowers with a salty tang that seems to come straight from the nearby Atlantic.
