Best Wine for Christmas Turkey

The holiday season is here, and with it comes the feast of all feasts, the Christmas dinner. Turkey is often the star of the show, but with so many wine options, it can be difficult to decide which one to serve. One of the most asked questions is, red or white with turkey? In this blog post, we'll delve deeper into this age-old question and find out which wine is the better match for your Christmas turkey. 


Wine with Christmas Turkey

White Wines - When it comes to white wine, Chardonnay is one of the most common pairings with turkey. The rich, buttery taste of a well-aged Chardonnay complements the flavors of the turkey and is an excellent match for the gravy. Another great option is a Riesling. It is a versatile wine with a unique flavor profile that complements the sweetness of the turkey and balances the spiciness of any sides you might have on the table.

Red Wines - If you're more of a red wine person, Pinot Noir is a popular pairing for turkey. Its light, fruity flavor doesn't overpower the turkey's delicate flavor, and the low tannin makes it an excellent match for white meat. Beaujolais is another well-known pairing as it is a light-bodied, fruity red that can complement both white and dark meat. Also, consider a bottle of Zinfandel or Merlot as they can add depth and richness to the meal.

Rosé Wines - Rosé wine is an underrated wine option for pairing with turkey. A dry rosé is great for complementing the turkey's savory flavors and cutting through the richness of the meal, making it a good option if you're serving a heavier sauce like a mushroom sauce. The lighter nature of a rosé also doesn't mask the flavors of the food pairing.

Sparkling Wines - Sparkling wine is often reserved for special occasions, but it is an excellent option for Christmas dinner. A crisp and dry sparkling wine can cut through the fattiness of the turkey and is a good match for the sides like roasted vegetables. Sparkling wines such as Prosecco and Champagne have effervescence that helps absorb the fats and oils of the meal, leaving the palate feeling refreshed.

In conclusion, the best wine for Christmas turkey is subjective, and ultimately it comes down to personal preference. A white wine such as Chardonnay or Riesling, a red wine like Pinot Noir or Beaujolais, Rosé, or Sparkling wine are all excellent options. When choosing the wine, consider the sides that will accompany the turkey, and the specific flavor you are seeking. Whether you opt for red, white, rosé or sparkling wine, always remember that a good glass of wine can enhance the flavors of Christmas dinner, making it a memorable occasion.
