The Best Wine for Fried Chicken.
Nigerians love fried chicken, and well seasoned deep fried chicken is always a delight. Whether you eat it hot or warm, wine and this classic meal go hand in hand.The combination of crunchy skin and juicy, delicately seasoned meat create a complex bite. The secret to effective wine pairing lies in finding a bottle that compliments the mild meat and cuts through the fatty, salty exterior at the same time. Here are some suggestions on the best wines to have fried chicken with.
Many Champagnes have fantastic yeasty flavors that compliment classic or extra crispy breading. Their inherent high acid and soda-esque bubbles offer a refreshing contrast to the greasy taste of fried chicken. Almost like a towel, carbonation in wine wipes away the flavor memory of grease and refreshes your palate for the next luscious bite.
