Wine can blend elegantly with a wide variety of dishes including meat, risotto, soup, and shellfish. Red wine adds rich notes to meats and desserts, whilst the delicate flavour white wine imparts is a perfect match for lighter pasta sauces and broths. With some creativity and practice, you can apply the right type of wine to the right type of dish and make recipes truly toast-worthy. Here are some wine recipes for you to try with those bottles you’ve brought home from all your Margaret River wine tours.
Oxtail, Chorizo, and Red Wine Stew
This simple dinner is a delicious way to enjoy some exotic meats. To start with, boil the oxtail to remove all impurities then sauté some onions, garlic, carrot and chorizo in 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Toss in paprika, orange zest, a bay leaf, and a sprig of rosemary once the vegetables are tender enough.
