Duck

Wine pairing with duck

Pinot Noir is a classic wine pairing with duck. The acidity in the wine will complement the gamey flavours of duck, and if you spice the duck, it will bring out all the nuanced flavours in Pinot Noir.

Merlot is a popular wine and it pairs well with duck, especially if you’re preparing an Asian style recipe. The rich, sweet flavours work well with the spices in the food, while the acidity provides a cleansing finish.

One of the best types of wine pairing with duck a l’orange or any other fruit-based dish is Gewurztraminer, an aromatic, full-bodied white. The fruit flavours of the sauce will be complemented perfectly by the softer, richly-bouqueted wine with its lychee flavours, floral notes and spicy finish.
