Turns out pairing wine with your smartphone is just as important as pairing wine with what you’re eating

Did you ever go to the wine store and ask the salesman which wine you should buy based on what’s for dinner? I bet you never asked him what you should buy based on the phone you have in your pocket. Turns out that you might want to consider that for you next purchase. Stuff.tv gave Tim Morgan, from the Summer Chimney Wine Club, six smartphones and asked him to match wines to the typical user for each. Hit the break to find out the results


Samsung Galaxy S III – Shrinking Violet Syrah/Viognier 2011, Pays d’Oc France

This full bodied Syrah is from Southern France and is softened by the addition of Viognier. They recommend splashing some into stewing beef and mushrooms and drinking the rest while waiting for it to cook.


Samsung Galaxy Note II – Carmen Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, Colchagua, Chile

This Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile sports dark fruits overlaid with cassis, eucalyptus, and allspice. It goes perfectly with a big rib-eye steak (or a big phone).


HTC One X + – El Bon Homme 2011, Valencia, Spain

This seductive wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Monastrell (Mourverde) and comes from the hills of Valencia. It’s considered eccentric since each case comes with four different bottles, each with a stick man and a red button. It’s ripe but balanced with sweet blackberry and plum fruits with a touch of black cherry.


Apple iPhone 5 – Manawa Sauvignon Blanc 2011, Marlborough, New Zealand

This Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and zesty with grapefruit citrus notes. The grapes are farmed bio-dynamically and made at the Seresin Estate, which is owned by cinematographer Michael Seresin. He’s known for Harry Potter, Angela’s Ashes, and Midnight Express.


Nokia Lumia 920 – Sola Fred 2010, Montsant, Spain

This wine hails from super-cool Monstant in the hills behind Tarragona in Catalonia. It sports delicious blackcurrent, black cherry, and earth aromas. It goes great with pasta, tomato, chorizo, and peppers.


Blackberry Bold 9900 – Chateau Deville 2006, Premieres Cotes de Bordeax, France

This medium-bodied Merlot sports aromas of berries, cherries, and earthy spice notes. It’s soft on the palate and has a satisfying finish thanks to the juicy red fruits and the classic claret cedar note.
