What wines go with gammon?
When matching wine with gammon or ham, consider two things: whether you’re serving the meat hot or cold and what sort of glaze is on the meat. A hot ham needs a more robust wine to match than when cold, where the flavours can taste milder. Try Grenache, it’s medium-bodied with a hint of spice that will match up to cloves and other spices you might use as a glaze. For cold ham, Beaujolais is light on the palate, with berry notes and sweetness that would go well with fruity chutneys. Chilean Merlot is soft in style and can complement maple and honey glazes. For whites, Chenin Blanc that is oaked will stand up to smoky flavours, and Riesling will pair well with a sweet and spicy glaze.
