March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day … which begs the question:
Is there any wine that pairs with corned beef and cabbage?
This in turn begs the question: Can we skip the corned beef and cabbage and just have wine?
Corned beef is salty and cabbage is skunky: is there a wine for that?
Yes, as long as you avoid those wines with a strong sulphur smell or taste, as well as big red wines with heavy tannins and oak.
Your best bet is a zesty white wine, such as pinot blanc or sauvignon blanc.
If you insist on a red wine, then try those with juicy berry flavour and smooth tannins like Californian Zinfandel.
You can also go with the no-fail choice of sparkling wine …
… those refreshing bubbles will have your Irish eyes smiling.
