Do you know how to pair tamales with wine?

It is typical for tamales to be enjoyed with atole or coffee but on this occasion we are going to pair them with wine.


Atole is usually the ideal companion for Tamales of the Candlemas day Well, these are best enjoyed accompanied with a good atole or coffee, but have you thought about combining tamales with wine? The mixture of these two elements sounds a little strange, although if you do it correctly, the tamales-wine pairing , it is not only a different option to eat tamales but also a delicious combination.

Oaxacan tamales, those with morita and suadero sauce, go best with a dry wine, with refreshing acidity, with warm alcohol and fine tannin, which, together with the unctuousness of the suadero, give a silky body to the palate. The aroma with notes of wild fruits, black pepper and vanilla help reduce the spicy sensation of the morita sauce.

Those with jalapeño slices and gouda cheese are best with white wines, aged for 6 months in barrels, together with the creaminess of the cheese they make perfect harmony with the flavor. The freshness and fruitiness of the wines made with Carignan grapes give a balance to the spiciness of the rajas.

The gourmet tamales, made with huauzontle, ramonetti cheese and red sauce make a perfect match with the wines made with Pinot Noir, as the notes of nuts and mushrooms combine perfectly with the herbal notes of the huazontle.

The braised beef tail tamales, cascabel chili sauce and fried hibiscus, being a dish with an intense flavor, go best with the wines made in San Luis Potosí, made with three grapes: cabernet sauvignon, merlot and tempranillo, which complete the dish with the maturity of its notes of stewed fruits and spices.

Dessert is never missing in any meal, neither is tamales, which is why vanilla tamales and cheese ice cream go better with sparkling wines from Querétaro, in this case. A Burt mixed with the sweetness of vanilla and the caramel of pineapple generate an explosion of flavors in the mouth.

Finally, the sweet uchepo, made with strawberry compote and café de Olla ice cream, is ideal with the wines from this area of ​​Guanajuato, since the sweetness and acidity of the compote combined with the spices of the Café de Olla make a harmony. Perfect with the sweet wines of the Guanajuato region.
