Wine and Music Pairings

4/16/2018 11:17 AM

The Wine Enthusiast created a fun and interesting list of music and wine collaborations. They are as follows:

Country Music & California Zinfandel

The music stems from folk expressions of rural South and West; a uniquely American form that found its greatest success crossing over with other popular styles such as romantic, melancholy and even pop.

The wine style is rustic, wild and all-American. California Zin embodies a unique style all its own. Boasting comforting flavors of wild berrries and brairy herbs, top pours also feature lush, silky notes and hints of vanilla.

Why not try our Ravenswood Lodi Zinfandel whilst listening to some Taylor Swift or Garth Brooks?

Classic Rock & Australian Shiraz

A powerful music style finding mass popularity in 60s through the 80s. It is generally comfortable and nostalgic, with wide appeal. Artists may have been radical at first, but now verge on mainstream.

Australian Shiraz is an electric blend of bright fruit and warm, mouth filling texture. It straddles power and grace.

Listen to the likes of Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones or Queen whilst enjoying The Gourmet Shiraz available on our website. 

Indie & Riesling

A highly individual music genre that is not for the mass appeal. It has basis in iconoclastic artists of the 1970s. It takes from familiar elements to create something new and can be soft and sweet, but also intense and discordant.

Riesling is a versatile wine that varies in style from rich and unctuous to austere and brisk. These pours sing with lemony citrus and green notes, rocking fresh peach and mineral flavors.

Sit back and listen to artists such as The Smiths, Arcade Fire and Nirvana whilst enjoying our Preiss-Zimmer Riesling.

Jazz & Pinot Noir

Twentieth-century genre that fuses African tradition with popular American idioms. It is both technical and intuitive. An improvisatory and ever-changing genre which is never experienced the same way twice.

Like Jazz, Pinot Noir riffs on the classics, marrying modern and traditional winemaking. The best bottles reveal focused layers of cherry and chocolate, deep notes that linger after the last drop.

So why not pop open a bottle of our Esk Valley Pinot Noir and put on some Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong or maybe some Billie Holiday.
