Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Alcoholic Drink, White Wine, Ingredient, Food Product Category, Sauvignon Blanc, Wine, Dry White Wine, Drink, Menu Item Type, Gruener Veltliner
Chardonnay, Alcoholic Drink, and White Wine are my top picks for Fruit Salad. Sauvignon Blanc and Gruner Veltliner both have herby notes that complement salads with enough acid to match tart vinaigrettes, while a Chardonnay can be a good pick for creamy salad dressings. One wine you could try is Kumeu River Hunting Hill Chardonnay. It has 4.8 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 60 dollars.
Kumeu River Hunting Hill ChardonnayThis wine has fragrant lemon/lime blossom aromas on the nose that typify the lovely perfume from fruit grown in Hunting Hill. The 2013 vintage was affected by a spring frost and the subsequent yields were approximately one-half the usual size. The summer was one of the best on record and the grapes were beautifully clean, ripe and intensely flavored, creating a wine of intense concentration and complexity that will be very long-lived.
