Steak, Seafood & Sparkling Wine: It’s Officially the Weekend

 Surf and turf can be a challenge when it comes to wine pairing. Can you really choose one bottle that will enhance both steak and seafood? Sparkling wine is the answer! It plays up these classic flavours without overwhelming. And whether you’re on a budget or ready to splurge, we’ve got the surf-and-turf combo to suit you and, of course, the perfect wine match, too!


Budget

Grilled Sirloin & Monkfish with Killer Sauce + Cave Spring Blanc de Blancs Brut Sparkling VQA

“Blanc de blancs” on the label indicates a sparkling wine made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes. Expect a creamy texture and toasty, nutty notes that complement the smoky flavours in charcoal-grilled sirloin and monkfish. This dish is fantastic with Cave Spring Blanc de Blancs Brut Sparkling VQA.


Splurge

 Rib Steaks with Crab & Bottarga + Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne

Speaking of sparkling wine, Champagne is a great choice for surf and turf. Its rich texture and racy acidity complement steak, yet its elegant apple, citrus and biscuit flavours will not overpower delicately sweet crab. We love this dish with Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne VINTAGES.
