Southern can be paired with Riesling, Sparkling Wine, and Zinfandel. In general, there are a few rules that will help you pair wine with southern food. Food-friendly riesling or sparkling white wine will work with many fried foods, while zinfandel is great with barbecued fare. The Domaine Leseurre Dry Cuvee Classique Riesling with a 4.8 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 23 dollars per bottle.
Domaine Leseurre Dry Cuvee Classique RieslingDomaine Leseurre’s Riesling juice is fermented 100% in stainless tanks. While on its lees, the wine is hand-stirred (bâtonnage sur lies) once per month, for 11 months. This process develops an additional complexity of flavors and aromas. This dry Riesling has scents of citrus blossoms and lemon zest, layered on the palate with hints of pear. This riesling pairs well with trout amandine, raw oysters and is a lovely aperitif.
