With all those deep, dark chocolate notes right in a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine seems like a natural match for an intensely-flavoured, dark chocolate dessert.
When pairing wine and chocolate there is a few guidelines to follow because some wines and chocolates are really not a match made in heaven.
Wine and chocolate tips:
- The chocolate shouldn’t be sweeter than the wine.
- The darker the chocolate, the more likely it will be to taste good with red wine (partly because chocolate with a higher percentage of cacao has less sugar).
- The darker chocolates, with deep-roasted flavours, pair well with wines with dark, toasty notes themselves.
A great wine to serve with dark chocolate is the Kumkani Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon.
