How to Pair Seafood with White Wine

1. Salmon Fishcakes + Casillero Del Diablo Chardonnay

For a Good Friday dinner that’s light and delicious, pair fresh salmon fishcakes with Casillero Del Diablo Chardonnay.

3. Seafood Pasta With Cream Sauce + Francois Martenot Grand Pres Macon-Villages Chardonnay

5. Thai Green Fish Curry + Isabel Estate Pinot Gris

A Thai Green Fish Curry is an easy dish to put together and you’ll be rewarded with zingy Thai flavours. Pair it with Isabel Estate Pinot Gris, a wine with aromas of red-apple skin, quince and subtle underlying ginger spice that lead to a layers of pear, nectarine and baked apple tart on the palate.

6. Crab and Prawn Ravioli In Seafood Bisque Sauce + Cat Amongst The Pigeons Eden Valley Chardonnay

For a more decadent dining experience, indulge in Crab and Prawn Ravioli in a Seafood Bisque Sauce. Pair it with Cat Amongst the Pigeons’ Eden Valley Chardonnay, a wine with tropical and stone fruit aromas and subtle oak flavours that finishes fresh and crisp on the palate cutting through the richness of the bisque sauce.
