Moussaka wine pairing

Moussaka is a flavourful Greek dish which is best paired with a rich red wine with good tannins and acidity. The dish often contains minced lamb meat and flavours like nutmeg. A rich oaked white wine is also a good choice for this dish.

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.
