FOOD & DRINK
Crisp, light-intensity wines (those with little or
no oak) will pair best with oysters on the half
shell, since they tend to be relatively high in
acidity. Try a Matua Sauvignon Blanc from New
Zealand or a Stags’ Leap Winery Viognier from
Rich dishes like oysters Rockefeller, with its
hints of bacon, pair with the widest variety of
wines. In other words… drink what you like! You
can’t go wrong with a Penfolds Bin 28 Kalimna
Shiraz from South Australia or a Chateau St.
Jean Robert Young Vineyard Chardonnay from
California’s Alexander Valley.
O;-dry and light styles of wines do well with
grilled oysters because their fruitiness or sweetness bu;ers the rise in acidity as oysters boil on
the barbecue. Wolf Blass Riesling from South
Australia or Etude Carneros Pinot Noir from
California would do well here.
Half Shell, Full Glass
They spend their lives underwater, so it stands to reason that oysters
can stand up to a splash of wine. What to pour? It depends on how you’re
preparing your shellfish, says Treasury Wine Estates’ Nicole Carter.
