Poke 🍣 is a favorite around our house and of course catching our own salmon every year 🎣, we have lots of it at home. The only thing better is knowing what wine to pair, and my favorite and go to is a Gruner Veltliner.
It’s got the perfect characteristics. This wine is well balanced and not overly aromatic or flavorful that sometimes plagues cheap white wines. It is dry and acidic but you can clearly taste the notes of lime, pineapple, and green apple. It ends with delightful hints of green peppers and freshly mowed grass.
These vines are hard to come by but if you want to get your hands on one, check out @traderjoes!
