Its pulp has a strong flavor and is usually accompanied by a powerful sauce. To compete with the flavours, the wine will also need to show good structure.

Venison can be eaten hot or cold. Even uncooked, its meat has a very pronounced flavour. It can be served in a bowl, in a paté or in the form of dried meat.
