Fume Blanc ($20) & Spring Salad:
Fume Blanc’s energetic palate (acid profile) and grassy notes are nice with spring salads to go (assume: fennel and orange salad, grilled pasta and veggie salad, and so forth.)
Chardonnay ($20) and Indian Hen Curry (Yellow):
The delicate curry flavors and creamy notes are a great match with chardonnay’s fruity flavors and delicate, refreshing palate.
Pinot Noir ($27) & Spicy Tuna Roll:
As a result of tuna is a barely fattier fish it could deal with a wine with a bit extra physique like a Napa Valley Pinot Noir. This wine’s fruity flavors, spice and savory notes and an amazing silky palate stability the fatty fish and the roll’s spicy flavors.
Cabernet Sauvignon ($28) and a Meat Lover’s Pizza:
Pizza is a Chicago favourite. Select one with meatballs, sausage and extra as an incredible match up with the dense, fruity and concentrated darkish fruit flavors of Cabernet Sauvignon.
Maestro Purple Mix ($50) and a Juicy Hamburger:
A juicy take out burger (or, one off the grill) deserves a juicy wine companion. This Bordeaux Type Napa Valley pink mix marries Cab, Cab Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes to get a fruity and mouth filling wine that stands properly alongside a meaty burger.
