Tasting Notes/Recommended Wine Pairings

Wine Recommendation: Nigl Gruner Veltline, Freiheit Kremstal 2019 (Total Wine $23.00)

As with most fish dishes, the sauce often drives the wine pairing and this dish is no difference.  Let’s try a white wine that handles the sweet and nutty notes but doesn’t overwhelm the dish.  We suggest a Gruner Veltliner from Austria, where it is almost exclusively grown.  There won’t be a drop of oak in any Gruner which preserves the delicate flavors.  You will notice the lemon, lime and grapefruit flavors but there’s also a herbaceous note in a Gruner along with its acidity.  This should marry perfectly and not cramp the Swordfish either.  We suggest the Nigl Gruner Veltliner, Freiheit Kremstal, 2019 (Total Wine $23).  You know this will be a good wine when you realize they have been producing wines in Austria since 700 B.C.  Though we suggest you stick to a recent vintage!
