What wine to order with duck when dining out in the Philippines

Are you someone who enjoys a nice dish of duck for dinner in a good restaurant in the Philippines?

If the answer is yes, you are not alone. In fact more and more people in Manila have developed a taste for the gamey and rich flavors of duck. When prepared properly, duck can be a really nice meat to enjoy with wine. The question that remains is what kind of wines should we drink when we order duck for our meal in the Philippines?

Many good restaurants in Manila and some of the best restaurants in Pampanga are already placing one or more duck dishes on their food menus. A nice pan fried duck breast seems to be the crowd’s favorite at this moment; but a confit of whole duck is gaining popularity fast in the Philippines It seems that duck appeals especially to Manila’s wine drinkers. For reasons that may not be known to all wine lovers in the Philippines, duck goes very well with wines, both red and white.

Duck dishes would typically be gamey and fatty. The actual flavors of the dish often depend on the sauce and the marinade. Gamey and fatty meat calls for a wine that comes with fresh acidity. Bright fruit flavors help too. This is why a red wine from Burgundy is considered by many to be the classic choice, almost a no-brainer. The purity of red fruit and berry flavors offered by Pinot Noir fit the bill nicely. Workable substitutions include Pinot Noir from Oregon and New Zealand, as well as other regions in France such as Sancerre.

Burgundy wines are fast becoming a wine of choice for seasoned wine drinkers in the Philippines. Unfortunately there aren’t that many places where good red or white wines from Burgundy are served. Most wine shops in Manila prefer to carry wines of lower prices, those from Chile, Argentina and South Africa. Even in the midrange price points, wine shops in the Philippines prefer to offer wines from Italy, Spain, Australia, California and New Zealand. Those wine suppliers in the Philippines that offer a good selection of French wines tend to include mainly wines of Bordeaux in the selection. Fortunately there are a few good wine suppliers in the Philippines that offer a good selection of wines from Burgundy.
