Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc
Salmon works really well with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Sauvignon Blanc. To decide on white or red, you should consider your seasoning and sauces. Chardonnay is a great friend to buttery, creamy dishes, while sauvignon blanc can complement herb or citrus-centric dishes. A light-bodied, low-tannin red such as the pinot noir goes great with broiled or grilled salmon. You could try Laguna Winery Russian River Chardonnay. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 29 dollars per bottle.
Laguna Winery Russian River ChardonnayNestled in the heart of the Russian River Valley, Laguna Ranch Vineyard has been home to world-class Chardonnay for the past 30 years. The vineyard owes its long growing season to the cool fog that rolls in from the Pacific Ocean, giving our Chardonnay grapes a delicate balance between crisp acidity and ripe fruit flavors. An elegant expression of its namesake vineyard, Laguna Ranch Vineyard Chardonnay is an exceptionally well-balanced and luxurious wine. Opens with notes of apple, pear, quince and tangerine, framed by sweet undertones of Asian spice. Well balanced and rich, this Chardonnay has an expressive mouthfeel and a layered, lingering finish.
