It is only with the good selection of the appropriate wine with our dish that we can experience real gastonomic pleasure.Bearing in mind the specific properties of the Vranac red wine, help and recommendation for the wine choice and their matching with the appropriate dishes will be very useful for us.In better restaurants we are always helped by specialized restaurant staff, wine waiters or ‘sommeliers’. They help us in solving the dilemma concerning the selection of the appropriate wine with the specific dish,or vice versa. However, the choice is very often given to ourselves.
Famous, subtle cuisines have always different wines which have their features. These cuisines, namely restaurants, besides the selection of fresh and good quality ingredients give great importance to the selection of the appropriate wines,as well. These wines are specific for their origin, features,characteristics and certainly, by different alcohol contents.
How can we make the correct selection of wine? Of course, wines should be tasted and among many different wines we should find the wines which suit us best, concerning our needs, habits or tastes. That is why the experience is necessary and the saying that ‘wine experience is the experience of mature age’. Certainly, nobody will ask high expert knowledge from the real and enthusisatic wine lover, but it is certainly expected from owners of catering facilities and oenologists.We may always apply some basic rules when matching wine and food.
Therefore, light dishes match with light wines, heavy dishes match with heavy wines, sour dishes match with acidic fresh wines, white meat and cooked fish match with white wines, neutral white wines match with shells and crabs, red meat, game and grilled fish match red wines, dessert wines or sparkling wines match with and coffee goes well with liqueurs,grape brandies, cognacs
or similar drinks. When there are several dishes at table, first white, dry wines, then rose and finally, red wines are served. Young wines are always served before old and aged wines. Sweet wines are served after semi-sweet wines and these after dry wines. Wines with less bouquet should be served before those with expressed aroma and bouquet.
Wines with cold and hot appetizers
It is with different appetizers,consisting mostly of prosciutto,salami, sausages, eggs, fish specialties, pates and various salads that white wines are served. Light, red wines are served with appetizers consisting of eggs or meat. Heavier and full bodied white
wines with expressed smell such as Chardonnay and similar wines match well with warm appetizers and as for red wines, light bodied wines with moderate alcohol contents match with them.
Wines with cheese
Cheese is most frequently served as cold appetizers and also at the end of the meal. The order of serving depends on the characteristics of cheese and in this way,the choice of wine which suits best. So, it is known that goat’s cheese goes perfectly
well with Sauvignon. Young, fresh white cheese accompanies best dry, white wine, acidic, fresh with fruity smell,such as: Chardonnay, Krstač and other white wines as well as with rose.
