Session one: Pairing red wine with the peppa pocket bar
PAIRING WITH THE PEPPA POCKET BAR
Pairing with the “peppa” bar is truly a unique tasting experience, What’s unique about it is the playfulness of the tannins of a red wine with Italian cracked pepper. You might think it’s an odd combination but you need to try it to understand and experience it.
A perfect time try a pairing.
A rich bold red with earthy tones is a perfect pairing with the peppa bar. Rich with tannins it gives you that slight bite on the taste buds, it’s fantastic on it’s own of course but watch it sing with a sip and a slight nibble of the peppa chocolate bar. Watch what happens to the tannins of the wine after a bite.
The best way to try it, is this. Swirl your wine in the glass to aerate and release the flavors and get more oxygen into thw wine to breath, take a smell, then a sip and let it coat your taste buds. Take note of the flavor, the tannins and the smell. Write it down. Now small nibble of the peppa bar, slowly let it melt over your tongue and release it’s flavors. Now take another sip or two, do you notice a difference? The flavors and the tannins will have changed due to the cracked pepper in the pocket bar. Smoothing out the tannins, creating a new flavor profile. So what did you think? Did it work for you?
The interesting thing about pairing is not all of us taste the same, so for some the profile might be intense while for others less so. That’s the beauty of pairing your favorite beverage with chocolate it’s different for everyone. We suggest you try some of our other pocket chocolate bars and see the difference, perhaps the “oranji” bar as the citrus of the orange is a wonderful pairing with red or white wine. Or try the “espresso pocket bar” to discover the earthy flavors of a red wine. The possibilities are endless. Read more about creating your own chocolate and wine pairing, or try the chocolate and beer pairing. It’s so much fun, try it with friends.
