Video Transcription

Howdy, wine drinker.

I’m Jacob from I Want You to Drink More Wine.

In this video, I’m going to share an honest wine review that suggests a pairing that complements this wine perfectly.

Today we’re going to be pairing a Viognier Marsanne blend, and one of my favorite seafood dishes.

It’s very simple, but I love it.

Let’s go ahead and check out our wine.

d’Arenberg The Hermit Crab Viognier Marsanne 2015

What we have here, ooh, I had it backward.

We have a d’Arenberg.

The Hermit Crab.

This is a Viognier Marsanne blend.

Viognier’s is going to be the more dominant varietal in this wine.

And this is out of McLaren Vale, which is in Australia.

This is a 2015.

Now between this wine and the pairing the reason I have this is because Viognier Marsanne pretty much goes with any seafood dish.

So let’s go ahead and crack this bad boy open, and we’re going to see what our pairing’s like.

I’m going to make you wait.

I am just going to open the wine, try the wine, and then we’re going to jump right into our pairing.

We’re going to do it a little different.

So I’m excited to try this wine.

Very, very chilled.

Just the way I like this.

And that’s how I recommend you have it.

Fridge cold.

So nice and crisp.

This is delicious.

Very good.

I can’t even put this down.

But we got to give our pairing a try.

Let’s check it out.

Perfectly Seared Scallops

Look what I got for you here.

Fresh pan seared scallops.

Don’t those look so good?

Let’s give it a bite and try.

Mm.

Melt in your mouth delicious.

Mm, mm, mm.

I love it.

If you like seafood, if you like Viognier Marsanne, this is delicious.

If you want to try this pan seared recipe, go ahead and get the recipe right here.

And if you’re going to pick up this wine, I got it at Lucky’s Market.

The Hermit Crab.

Viognier Marsanne blend.
