Thing you shall know about Iberico Shoulder Ham

One of the 10 best Spanish Foods - Iberico shoulder ham! This ham is specially come from 100% pure Iberico breeding pigs. Everyone should try while in Spain or Singapore!

In Spain, people are used to pair the Iberico Ham with a full-body red wine. However, nowadays people start to break this rule! Why? This is because a full-body wine can be quite intense and overpower the Ham or make it taste stringent.

I propose a bold and textural white instead of a bigger red. Attention! Don’t choose a very fresh and aromatic white, instead, choose a fermented wine in oak barrels will be amazing!

I choose Valenciso White 2016, a spanish white wine from D.O. La Rioja. A Viura and White Garnacha Wine. It’s a distinctive white wine. The White Garnacha makes it richer in the mouth while the Caucasus oak is more subtle, accompanying rather than overpowering.
