A Wine Expert Spills—This Is Exactly What to Pair With Sauvignon Blanc
We don't know about you, but this abysmal winter weather has us dreaming of 72-and-sunny forecasts. While we've been perfectly content getting comfortable on the couch and sipping pinot noir, now that spring is within sight, we're looking forward to dining alfresco with a beaded glass of crisp white wine in hand. (Not that we're counting, but a quick Google search tells us that there are only 22 more days until the first official day of spring.)
Seeing as we're poised to stock up on refreshing white wine in anticipation of the new season, we turned to Winc's wine director Brooke Matthias to spill the details on the best foods to pair with sauvignon blanc, aka the light, flavorful, citrusy varietal that's essentially spring in liquid form. Ahead, the wine expert reveals three of the best bottles and divulges the perfect food pairings for each. Spanning spicy Thai food paired with a light Chilean sauvignon blanc to briny oysters paired with a citrusy Marlborough, there's a combination to please every palate.
