Wine Pairings

Pair it with: A spritzy white.
When it comes to matching wine with fried fish, look no further than a Portuguese vinho verde. The low alcohol and refreshing acidity lift the dish by accenting the delicate fish while cutting through the rich sour cream.
Our pick: Gazela Vinho Verde, Portugal, $9.
