The Wine Matchmaker

by

For anyone who ever wondered what wine goes best with haggis, writer Natalie MacLean has the answer on her new interactive Wine and Food Matcher. It's all part of her website, Nat Decants, a chatty and info-packed look at all things wine and wonderful. The Matcher is one of the most comprehensive we've come across. Enter either a food (lampreys?) or a wine (Colombard?) and a recommended pairing pops right up. Better yet, once you've decided on a style of wine, other links lead to specific makes and models, based on MacLean's exhaustive tastings. The site also offers the sommelier's picks for favorite wine-and-food themed books and movies; links to her articles on food, wine, and culture; and a section of FAQs, all of which help make it a delightful diversion for those who dig the pleasures of the table. Oh, and about that haggis? While it sounds like an unconscionable waste of good wine, MacLean recommends a Cabernet Sauvignon. -- Elaine T. Cicora
