What Wine to Drink with Oysters
Oysters are as complex as the wines that accompany them. Simultaneously salty and sweet, buttery and minerally, the world really is your oyster when it comes to pairing these mollusks with wine. Just like there is more than one way to shuck and eat an oyster, there are many different wines to pair. When pairing oysters with a particular wine, ask yourself what you want to highlight. Do you enjoy eating them fresh from the shell, or slightly cooked? Do you enjoy them for their salty and briny nature, or do you want to highlight their buttery and creamy qualities? No matter how you intend on enjoying them, there is a perfect wine just waiting to be opened and enjoyed.
