Don’t Be Scared to Pair Halloween Candy With Wine!
A little too old for trick or treating? Tomorrow night, add a bit of a BOOst to your your evening and crack open a bottle of wine to enjoy with your favourite Halloween sweets. To help you avoid a scary situation, we’ve paired some classic candies with select varietals from the Jackson Family Wines collection for the ultimate Hallo-Wine experience!
Peanut Butter Cups & Chardonnay
The ultimate combination of chocolate and peanut butter, deserves nothing but the best wine pairing to complement the heavenly flavours. Balance the sweet and salty mix of this timeless treat with a glass of Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay. This award-winning Chardonnay has the perfect acidic content to cut through the richness of the chocolate and peanut butter.
Jujubes & Chardonnay
Here’s a wine pairing that’s just as delicious as these addictive, chewy treats! Pair you handful of jujubes with a glass of La Crema Sonoma Coast Chardonnay; the high acidity helps ease the chewiness of each bite while the light and refreshing flavours delicately pair with the fruity notes of these bite-sized goodies.
Smarties & Cabernet Sauvignon
Smarties are a clever choice to pair with a glass of Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. This medium bodied, dry wine has the perfect amount of tannins to balance the sweetness of the chocolate. With flavours of plum and cranberry, this is a paring that tastes better after each Smartie and sip!
Licorice & Pinot Noir
Red licorice is a Halloween staple. Lovers of this twisted treat, will enjoy it with a glass of La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. This medium bodied wine pairs perfectly with the candy’s gummy texture, with bursts of fresh red fruit enhancing the cherry candy’s flavour.
