Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gruener Veltliner
Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Gruener Veltliner are great choices 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. The Kumeu River Hunting Hill Chardonnay with a 4.8 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs 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.
