Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gruener Veltliner
Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gruener Veltliner are my top picks for 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 Three Sticks Durell Vineyard Origin Chardonnay. It has 4.4 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 50 dollars.
Three Sticks Durell Vineyard Origin ChardonnayWhite gold in the glass with aromas of lemon blossom and fresh fig, this wine offers a refreshing take on Durell Vineyard. Fermented in concrete eggs, the wine exhibits Durell's signature minerality juxtaposed with a smooth and round mouthfeel. Ageing on the lees in stainless steel barrels develop palate presence, fresh citrus fruit enlivens the wine. Hints of summer peach highlight the long, luscious finish.
