Wine Pairings for Dishes with Mesquite Beans:

3 Things to know about pairing wines with mesquite beans:

  • Mesquite beans make a sweet-smelling aromatic flour powder reminiscent of coconut/cacao/cinnamon.  It is not sweet to the taste but in fact has a flavor of nuts with hint of citric acidity.  
  • It adds flavor weight to flavorless breads or starches and can be a complement to many different styles of wines like aromatic reds with lighter tannins like Grenache, Sangiovese, and GSM.  
  • Added to foods, the flour gives a nice balance of flavor for light crisp wines. The citric and tropical flavors in the flour provide a great base for foods to pair with crisp white wines like Orange Muscat, Riesling, and rose’.
