Charcuterie & Wine Pairings with Kurtis Kolt | Let’s get spicy! | “I have to admit, when it comes to sausage and charcuterie, I do like a little heat to it – but can wimp out on occasion if things get too intense. That’s not the case with Oyama’s Nduja, made with pork, roasted spicy peppers and garlic. A perfect amount of spice. It has a bit of a softer texture; think of it as spreadable chorizo. Now, the key with pairing wine alongside spice is looking towards anything that will balance out that heat. If you go with too dry of a white, that heat is only going to be enhanced. If you go with a higher-alcohol red, that heat will make the alcohol stand out. Of course, here you do want something with enough concentration to stand up to all of the Nduja’s flavour. Go for the Mission Hill Family Estate 2014 Reserve Pinot Noir. It bursts with cherries, raspberries and some light cola flavours, and then it’s lightly framed by French oak. Juicy and quaffable, it’ll come up a treat! You can pick up the Nduja at our counter. The Mission Hill Family Estate 2014 Reserve Pinot Noir is available at BCLDB stores ($24.49)”
