Menu Matcher - Beef


Beef is not that difficult to match to wine and it is really down to finding the right weight of wine to the dish. The noble rib served on a Sunday needs a serious claret or northern Rhône (younger wines with rarer meat and older, smoother wines with better done joints), a sticky casserole a Shiraz, Zinfandel or new world Cabernet and the homemade burger in a bun works so well with a fruity Italian Dolcetto.
