Lamb chops wine pairing

Lamb chops are best paired with a full-bodied red wine with good acidity and high tannins. Lamb chops are often seasoned with herbs, garlic and pepper. These flavours are best matched with a wine with herbaceous aromas.

Best pairing: Tempranillo

Tempranillo is also called Tinto Fino, Ull de Llebre, Cencibel, and Tinta del País in Spain, and Tinta Roriz and Aragonez in Portugal. This is a fruity and herbaceous red grape variety mostly grown in Spain and Portugal. It is the main grape of red Rioja wine.
