Not sure which wine to bring home for Thanksgiving? Here are a few showstopper varietals that will stand up to the eclectic selection of holiday dishes while impressing even the toughest critics at the table.
This dry, full-bodied varietal tends to be rich in berry flavors (think baked blueberries) while maintaining balance, and sophistication with notes of spices which can accommodate the bitter and sweet flavor profiles usually served on Thanksgiving. For the best flavor profile go for something from the Sonoma County in California, and chose a producer in your price range.
A varietal that is capable of handling garlic and onions, herbs and rich, flavorful, high-fat dishes. They tend to be youthful, vibrant, and crisp with notes of apricot, peach, melon, as well as butter, and nuts. Although dry, these wines have a certain sweetness to them, which enhances their complexity and allows them to be a fantastic pair for any Thanksgiving meal. Try Rex Goliath Wines for a satisfying Pinot Grigio under $10.
These assertive whites have flavors of grapefruit, and peach with spicy aromas that stand well with turkey, and gravy. It’s best to choose one that is dry or slightly dry especially with a Thanksgiving meal.
An elegant and savory varietal that is packed with sweet fruit, soft tannins and a fresh burst of tart acidity, which helps cut through rich dishes. Its herbal notes complement spices such as sage, thyme, and fennel, while its earthiness brings out flavors found in gravy, stuffing, and turkey. If you’re overwhelmed with Thanksgiving wine pairings, Pinot Noir is the perfect choice to satisfy almost every palate with amazing selections in EVERY price range.
