Let’s Dive into the Pairing Pool:
BEEF: Say hello to the star of the grill, beef! Traditionally, pairing beef with Chardonnay might seem audacious, yet Ravine Vineyards’ 2020 Chardonnay is an exquisite companion. With its hint of zesty acidity, this Chardonnay slices through the rich indulgence of a beef burger, complementing both cheesy and creamy toppings. For those who prefer a classic rendezvous, the 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon from Ravine offers a medium-bodied red option that dances harmoniously with zesty toppings. Your ideal pairing awaits, and it’s just a wine home delivery away.
LAMB: An exploration of burger pairings would only be complete with lamb, a canvas for reds and whites. Whether your lamb burger boasts notes of garlic, mint, Mediterranean spices, or simplicity, we’ve curated an assortment of wines for your tasting pleasure. The effervescent rosé, reminiscent of cherries, raspberry, and candied lime zest, is a sparkling treasure that will delight your senses. For those who lean towards reds, the slightly smoky Syrah paints a perfect partnership with your lamb burger.
TURKEY: Prepare to be enlightened – turkey burgers transcend traditional wine boundaries. The elegant Pinot Noir is ideal for a well-seasoned grilled turkey burger. With its light-bodied nature and hints of cherries, cocoa beans, roses, and vanilla, Pinot Noir gracefully dances alongside the delicate flavours of turkey. Let your taste buds indulge in the 2020 Pinot Noir, readily available for online wine orders in Toronto, effortlessly delivered to your doorstep.
SALMON: Surprises continue as we present the harmonious marriage of a juicy grilled salmon patty with white and red wines. Enter the stage, Ravine Vineyards’ 2021 Sauvignon Blanc, offering a gentle, fruity profile with a delicate crispness that elevates the salmon’s essence. Should your palate waver, a rosé option is a beacon of excellence.
VEGGIE: For the culinary adventurers embracing veggie burgers’ complexities, your options are as diverse as the ingredients themselves. Cauliflower and mushrooms, distinct in their contributions, warrant a varied selection of wines. Enter the scene: the skin-fermented Pinot Gris or the aromatic Viognier. Each gracefully intertwines with the fresh, vibrant notes of your veggie creation.
