Grilled shrimp loves almost all manner of whites and roses, but by pairing the wine with the accompanying sauce, you can really make a great match.
Sauvignon Blanc with herby flavors
Zesty Sauvignon Blanc has those slight green flavors that are terrific with herbs in sauces like salsa verde and pesto. These whites are also light enough to pair with shrimp in simple vinaigrettes or green salads.

Off-dry whites with spicy or tropical flavors
If shrimp are served with a spicy Asian-style dipping sauce, a slightly sweet Riesling is your best choice. The Riesling can also be great with fruit salsas, like mango. You can also try off-dry versions of Chenin Blanc (specifically those from Vouvray in France), which are richly textured whites that often have luscious fruit flavors.
