(A perfect burger with the addition of a slice of cheddar cheese which adds tang and creaminess to the overall profile.)
Crianza or Reserva Rioja
Chianti Classico or Montalcino Rosso
South African Cabernet
Why it works: Cheeseburgers are often classically paired with sweetened ice tea and the reason iced tea works so well is that its tannin acts as a palate cleanser, cleaning up after the stickiness of cheese. The wines above also feature higher tannin. Additionally, they have more savory flavors (tomato, roasted pepper, black currant, dried leather) which will better compliment the cheddar cheese and ground beef combination.
