Suggested Wine Pairings at Catch 35!
Sauvignon Blanc are popular in the United States due to their refreshing crispness, high levels of acidity, and low level of sugars. The name Sauvignon Blanc came from the French word for savage because the grape grew like a weed in the Bordeaux region of France. A good Sauvignon Blanc with have a nice crisp pucker with grassy and herbal notes. It is a nice contrast to sweet and succulent seafood.
Pinot Grigio is the second most popular wine in the U.S. A dry white wine with a punch of acidity and lemon, lime, and green apple flavors, Pinot Grigio grapes are actually a bluish grey color. In addition, Pinot Grigio is best served cold and is quite the refreshing partner to ocean fresh seafood dishes.
Sparkling wine is created with the addition of bubbles. The carbonation process is what differentiates champagne from sparkling wine. Sparkling wine uses the Champagne method to complete a second ferment in most bottles; however, it is not Champagne unless it was produced in the Champagne region of France. There are 4 levels of sweetness with a sparkling wine. Depending on your personal taste, you may prefer a sweeter or drier sparkling wine.
4 levels of Sweetness in a Sparkling Wine
#1 Extra-Brut: This is the driest kind of sparkling wine you can buy. The yeast has eaten absolutely all of the sugar, so there is a complete absence of it in the wine.
#2 Brut: This is the most popular type of sparkling wine. The wine is dry, but there is just a hint of sweetness. In this sparkler, the winemaker stopped the fermentation process just before the yeast ate all of the sugar, leaving a tiny amount behind in the wine.
#3 Extra Dry: Dry, but not as dry as Brut-it is slightly sweet. Example: Prosecco.
#4 Demi-sec: A sweet sparkling wine-best with a dessert!
Choose a brut Sparkling wine when pairing with seafood-the crispness of the brut will compliment the fresh seafood.
