Spring wine and food matcher
Here are some great food and white wine matches for springtime -- or any time!
Pinot Grigio cuts through the oil- or cream-based sauce commonly used in pasta primavera and livens the vegetables.
A herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc complements the vegetables while displaying its own distinctive personality.
Chinese Chicken Salad
An off-dry Riesling with its soft and luscious fruit flavors provides a nice counterpoint to the Chinese flavors while marrying well with the chicken.
Viognier's exotic fruit flavors of peach, pears and apricot combined with its spicy notes is a perfect match for the exotic flavors of a Chinese chicken salad.
Sole or Flounder Sprinkled with Lemon and Dill
The herbaceous character of Sauvignon Blanc makes it a good match with dill.
A Viognier, with its exotic spicy and somewhat anise flavor will marry nicely with dill.
Asparagus and Shaved Parmesan
The distinctive herbal quality of Sauvignon Blanc meets the pungent flavors of the asparagus topped with this hard cheese.
Easter Ham Sandwich and Spicy Mustard
The full ripe flavors of a fruity Riesling will balance the saltiness of the ham and complement the spicy mustard.
