Seafood is a versatile dish, and with so many flavors and textures, it’s no wonder that finding the perfect wine pairing can be a challenge. Fortunately, at Saltwater, our extensive wine menu offers a variety of options to complement the flavors of our seafood dishes. Here are our top recommendations for the best wines to pair with seafood:
Nothing says celebration like a glass of champagne, and it’s a perfect choice for seafood. The acidity in champagne cuts through the richness of seafood, while the effervescence refreshes the palate. At Saltwater, we offer a range of champagnes to suit all budgets, from the Piper Heidsieck Brut to the Louis Roederer Cristal.
Sauvignon Blanc is a classic pairing for seafood, thanks to its bright acidity and herbaceous notes. At Saltwater, we recommend the Oysterbay Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand, or the Groth Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley, California.
Pinot Grigio is another classic white wine that pairs well with seafood. Its light, crisp flavors complement the delicate flavors of seafood without overpowering them. At Saltwater, we offer a range of Pinot Grigios, including the Santa Margherita from Alto Adige, Italy, and the Corte alla Flora from Delle Venezie, Italy.
Chardonnay is a versatile wine that can pair well with a variety of seafood dishes. Its fuller body and buttery notes complement richer seafood dishes like lobster and crab. At Saltwater, we recommend the Simi Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley or the Farniente Chardonnay from Napa Valley.
Pinot Noir is a lighter red wine that pairs well with delicate seafood dishes like salmon and tuna. Its lighter body and earthy notes complement the subtle flavors of seafood. At Saltwater, we offer a range of Pinot Noirs, including the Enroute from the Russian River Valley and the Patz & Hall from the Sonoma Coast.
Rosé is a refreshing choice for seafood, especially during the warmer months. Its crisp acidity and fruit flavors complement lighter seafood dishes like shrimp and scallops. At Saltwater, we offer a range of rosés, including the Moët & Chandon Brut Rosé and the Ferrari Trento Brut Rosé.
