Crab pairs great with both Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. So what happens when you pair lemon-dill crab cakes with our 2015 CrossHatch “Tone”? Perfection! “Tone” is a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Chardonnay. The light, yet soothing, creamy mouth-feel of the Chardonnay adds significant body to the typically thinner and tart Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a match made in heaven!
Saffron is an amazing spice to work with. It adds depth to any dish it is added to by creating intense aromas and adding a slight bitterness. This Saffron Chicken dish is has a slight sweetness with a hint of the saffron bitterness which makes a very interesting pairing with our Carr Sauvignon Blanc. The crispness of the wine pairs great with the herbaceous and slightly sweet dish.
