Kangaroo Island Snapper with Ghost Wines Sparkling Merlot

 

Pairing Merlot with food provides lots of options. It does better with heavy sauces than the big tannic Cabernet Sauvignons. Its ample acid structure does surprisingly well with tomato based dishes as well. Strongly flavoured poultry and fish also complement Ghost Wines' Sparkling Merlot surprisingly well. It should be a go to for hot Australian Summers or for those who want a little more depth in their wine and food pairing.
