The perfect wine for pizza, crisps and popcorn

Experts have created a guide to matching wine with snacks – including Shiraz with pizza, Pino Grigio with nachos and Shiraz Rose with salt and vinegar crisps.

Tasters at Jacob’s Creek sampled different types of wine with 10 of the nation’s most popular snacks and light bites.

They found that Riesling is the perfect companion to a sausage roll, Chardonnay is great with wasabi peas or pittas and hummus, while Merlot compliments chocolate.

They even found that different wines match different pizza toppings – with Shiraz best for a Margherita but a meaty Cabernet Sauvignon with a pepperoni.

Meanwhile, Sauvignon Blanc was found to be the perfect pairing for salted popcorn and a Scotch Egg goes down a treat with a drop of Fiano.
