Scallops, with their delicate and slightly sweet flavor, are renowned for their versatility in pairing with various wines. However, there's one wine that stands out as the perfect companion for scallops, and that's Fino sherry wine. Fino, known for its crisp and dry profile, enhances the natural sweetness of scallops while providing a refreshing contrast. In this recipe, we'll show you how to create a mouthwatering dish that highlights the exquisite marriage of scallops and Fino.
It is an ideal aperitif wine and goes well with all types of tapa, especially olives, nuts and Iberian cured ham.
Also providing the perfect companion for shellfish and fish, especially those with a marked salty taste (anchovies) or even raw (sashimi).
Its low acetic acid content combines exceptionally well with dishes of marked acidity (vinaigrette salads, marinades, etc.) as well as with cold soups (gazpacho, ajo blanco, etc.).
Use an ice bucket with both ice and water to serve chilled between 6º & 8º C.
It adapts perfectly to a diverse range of salty and intense flavours.
