Wine and candy pairing! Is it possible? We say yes! 🎃 🍫
#Halloween candy is infiltrating our lives whether by force or by choice, and the only way to process this change in routine is to drink on it.
Fresher more fruit forward #wines are super versatile for fruity candy pairings. Sparkling rosé , especially #Crémant d'Alsace, Crémant de Bourgogne, and Cava Rosato are great pairings with gummy candies like sour gummy bears, gummy worms and #Starburst .
A well balanced, California-style Chardonnay is a great pairing for candy corn and candy pumpkins. If the wine has seen some oak and/or malolactic fermentation, it will have those buttery and vanilla notes that complement the vanilla flavors in the candy corn. The trick is to pick a #Chardonnay that isn’t over oaked or over manipulated so that it retains enough vibrant acidity to cut through the heavy sugars in the candy.
#WINE TO PAIR WITH REECE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS AND CANDY BARS
A cool climate #Syrah from California’s central coast exhibits rich high times fruits which amazingly complements the chocolate in peanut butter cups and candy bars. Nutty, chocolaty candy is best suited for wine that balances the sugar and cream from the milk chocolate and the salt from the peanut buttery elements. #SpanishSherry makes a great pairing as they have the strong acidic factor to cut through the fat in the treat, and they also tend to show a nice nutty quality, depending on the aging. German Rieslings also pair well. If the candy bar has coconut, try a Rioja Reserva. The hints of coconut from the American oak is an amazing compliment.
