FOOD PAIRING: Orval can be a fantastic aperitif, with the hallmark dryness of champagne with a mouthwatering complexity. Try with hors-d'oeurves and when doing so go with food that has more salt depth than most, so prosciutto, capers, sardines. Here Orval can draw out the salts and in the case of prosciutto the earthy flavours will work well with the gamey ham. Orval is great with fish as well, the lemon, citrus flavours can provide a perfect accompaniment to fish, whilst it can cut through fats and lift oils of fish such as sardines. For meat, then look no further than Herby sausages, that has a little spice which is counter-balanced by the sweetness, allowing the subtle herb flavours to be drawn though, pairing with the sausages.
