A Chilean Merlot is Very Good with a Beef Goulasch

We enjoyed a favourite Goulasch recipe from Supercook.  It is beef stewing steak cooked with onions, garlic, paprika, bay leaf, potatoes and sour cream and is simple and easy to make.

We have found Merlots often go well with Goulasch and opened a bottle of The Society’s Chilean Merlot 2011, a full bodied red from the Wine Society.

The wine was very smooth with dark plum fruits, vanilla sweetness,IMG_0567 with an underlying spiciness that complemented the stew.  A very good match.
