Recommended wine: Sparkling Wine, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Muscadet, Gruener Veltliner

Crawfish can be paired with Sparkling Wine, Chardonnay, and Riesling. Though different seafoods can certainly call for different wines, generally a crisp, light-bodied white wine or a sparkling white wine will do the trick and not drown out any subtle flavors. The Ferrari Perle with a 4.8 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 38 dollars per bottle.

Ferrari Perle
Straw-yellow with a slight golden sheen. Intense and particularly refined with scents of almonds, apples, a slight spice and hints of bread crust. Dry, clean and elegant with a lasting smoothness. Notes of ripe apples, a pleasant yeastiness and sweet almonds.
