What to pair with Fish Tacos?
Now, what wine to pair with this. I didn't question about selecting a white wine for this pairing. Recently I received some samples from Stemmari and one of the bottles was named Stemmari Baci Vivaci meaning "lively kisses". This white wine is a sparkling grillo, which is a grape indigenous to Sicily. It was a great selection for the pairing with these fish tacos as it was light bodied, dry, lemon citrus with a slight delicate sparkle and some minerality that went well with all the elements of the dish. For more about Stemmari and the wines of Sicily read the article I recently wrote with a different grillo viognier blend.
