Pairing Chocolate and Wine Like a Pro

Pinot Noir Rosé with White Chocolate

This wine is medium bodied with fresh and delicate flavours of strawberry and raspberry fruit with hints of mineral talc. The flavour of the white chocolate balances beautifully with the delicate floral and red berry fruit notes of the wine.

Taylors Estate Pinot Gris with Caramel or Milk Chocolate

This wine has an elegant palate with characters of pear, apple, citrus and subtle spice. A creamy milk chocolate with hints of caramel or dried fruit balances the crisp flavours of the wine.

Taylors Estate Merlot Paired with Toffee or Fruit & Nut Milk Chocolate

This wine has ripe berry, rich fruitcake flavours and soft, velvety tannins, while French and American oak notes add dark chocolate, coffee bean and vanilla characters that will match superbly with fruit, spice and toffee flavoured milk chocolates.

Taylors Estate Shiraz or Masterstroke Shiraz with Orange Milk Chocolate

A soft and “fleshy” shiraz, this wine has a lively taste of juicy red berry fruits, plum and spice, along with subtle chocolate and savoury characters from maturing in oak, all of which are heaven when combined with orange flavoured milk chocolates.

Taylors Jaraman Shiraz or Masterstroke Cabernet Shiraz with Coffee Milk Chocolate

A rich, full-bodied wine, this shiraz has intense flavours of ripe red berry fruit, violets and attractive oak characters of roasted coffee beans and dark chocolate, which are heaven for the taste buds when paired with coffee flavoured milk chocolates.

Taylors Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon or Masterstroke Cabernet Sauvignon with Mint Dark Chocolate

This velvety cabernet has aromas of dark cherry and mint, plus intense flavours of cassis and blackberry fruit along with attractive oak characters of cigar box and tobacco leaf. Dark chocolates with mint flavours will bring out the mint aspect of the wine while complementing the dark fruits and tobacco leaf flavours.
