If all men must die, let us have our fill of wine first. On April 24th, HBO’s Game of Thrones comes soaring back for a 6th season. If you are a dedicated fan and like to match the characters sip-for-sip, why not take it one step further and match your favorite GOT character with a perfect pairing? Below are a few suggestions – goblet optional.
Jaime is known for his charm and ability to slay with both sword and word. But, like this Bordeaux Blanc, it would be a mistake to not see beyond Jaime’s easy allure to the complexity just under the surface.
Beyond her razor-sharp wit and her nimble disposition, Arya stands apart for her fierce independence. Alsace Riesling is also a trailblazer, racy with a very dry finish and citrus notes. Don’t call either of them “sweet!”
Brave, bold and beautiful. The Mother of Dragons manages both strength and grace with aplomb. This Sauvignon Blanc is elegant, fresh, and speaks its mind – a perfect fit for this queen.
Brienne of Tarth
Brienne is marked by her tenacity and might, but take note of her understated elegance. Quinta dos Murças Reserva’s first impression is one of power, but it soon shows a softer side with juicy notes of blackberry.
Gregor Clegane/The Mountain
The Mountain is notorious for his tireless strength. Falesco Montiano’s muscle and persistent palate of plum and chocolate is similarly impressive, with a finish that won’t quit.
