So, it is Poutine week in the Province of Quebec. Although i am not a big Poutine fan, I eat it from time to time. Usually i drink it with a coke, but when i feel like drinking wine, I choose Spain or a Grenache blend from Australia or Southern Rhone. What you choose to drink will depend on the toppings of the Poutine and the brown sauce.
For my international readers, a poutine is a French Canadian dish based on french fries, cheese curds and meat brown sauce. Toppins can be added such as Smoked meat, Pastrami, Foie Gras.
Here are two Spanish suggestions to go with your favorite Poutine.
Valle de la Orotava 2013, 7 Fuentes, Soagranote ( $21.20, 12475425)
Very earthy nose with aromas bringing to mind cranberries, smoke, spices with great mineral depth. Full body with lots of red fruit character and earth.
Vino de la Terra de Mallorca 2013, 12 kilos, 4 Kilos Vinicola. ( $28.85, 11852479)
On the nose, red fruit predominates such as cranberries and black pepper. Full body, juicy with cured meat flavors. Good balance between fruit acidy, fruit and tannins.
