Oven baked meats like goat kid are also good option to surprise. Since it is a tender and buttery meat, that almost crumble in the mouth, it asks for a less complex wine like this.
To finish a meal, try this wine with a traditional Christmas dessert in Portugal: filhós, a fritture sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon.
Codfish goes well with both red and white wine. A red is more suitable due to its unctuous body. However, some say that fish, whatever type, should be served with a fresher wine that balances the more intense flavours of the dish. So, we recommend pairing cod with Quinta dos Murças Minas, a fresh red with good acidity.
Port is always an excellent choice for the traditional portuguese christmas cake called ‘Bolo Rei’ (as in ‘King Cake’).
