Gorgonzola cheese and grilled chicken are also a good match with it. For a bottle of Merlot, you would have to spend somewhere around Rs2000.

  1. Chilean wine

On the whole, Chilean wines tend to be fruit-forward and flavour-packed.

The red wines tend to be fuller-bodied, with carménère and merlot-based wines often showing a tinge of greenness. Many wines from Chile tend to pack a pretty hefty punch, as the country’s warm growing regions allow for high levels of sugars in fruit, which in turn, translates to high levels of alcohol in the wines. However, wines produced at higher altitudes or marine- or coastal-influenced areas often show higher acidity and lower levels of alcohol.
A Chilean wine that will pair with nearly every food you can think of. One approach is to sip these wines with the country’s foods: empanadas, sopapillas, asado, pastel de choclo, and beyond.

  1. Port Noir

Pinot noir is a type of wine grape and a style of red wine that is typically light to medium-bodied, fruit-forward, and relatively low alcohol compared to other red wines. Originally from Burgundy, the pinot noir grape is notoriously hard to grow. An interesting fact about this wine is that, it is the healthiest red wine. It can be paired best with barbeque chicken/beef and pecking duck.
