Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gruener Veltliner
Salad works really well with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gruener Veltliner. 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. You could try Kumeu River Hunting Hill Chardonnay. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.8 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 60 dollars per bottle.
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.
