How to Solve Tricky Wine-Pairing Dilemmas

Slide 5 of 7

Lesson 4: Alsace White Wine with Tangy Foods

Tangy Food Pairing: Mahimahi with Sauerkraut-Pickle Beurre Blanc

Why It Works: Kimchi, pickles, sauerkraut and other sour foods overwhelm most wines. Dry white Alsatian varieties, like Pinot Blanc or Pinot Gris, have a fruitiness that harmonizes with tart flavors, similar to a sweet-and-sour candy. Try the 2009 Cloudline Cellars Pinot Gris from Oregon.
