The Better Half Sauvignon Blanc’s perfect meal matches

People,Wine

Just like George, The Better Half Sauvignon Blanc has some gastronomic soul mates that bring out its best qualities. Our taste buds love to pair the pert, fresh grassy Sauvignon Blanc flavours with our favourites from the sea. We’re spoiled here at the top of the South Island with beautiful locally-farmed salmon and ocean-caught snapper made even more perfect when accompanied by a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

Enjoy this vintage al fresco with a platter of fresh smoked salmon paté and some seeded crackers or a plate of oysters and a squeeze of lime. Or place a large glass alongside the fresh herby flavours of a tabbouleh salad.

It’s perfect with fresh mussels sautéed in white wine (you know which one to choose!) and garlic topped with a sprinkle of parsley. Or enjoy Kiwi style with freshly caught fish and homemade chunky chips with flaky sea salt and a squeeze of lemon.

As you can tell, George likes to keep the food matches simple so he can focus on the important things – like pouring another glass and getting into a good meaty discussion.
