BEST WINE PAIRING FOR A SEAFOOD TOWER

Much like other seafood dishes, most shellfish is light on flavor, which calls for similarly delicate, light wines. A cold glass of champagne or sparkling white wine has a dryness, acidity, and depth of flavor that can enhance just about any seafood dish – particularly this one.

Other good examples include an Albariño from the Rias Baias region on the Atlantic Spanish coast, crisp white varietals like Sauvignon Blanc, or Italian whites like Pinot Grigio.

Simply put, choosing the right pairing for this type of dish can turn a memorable dining experience into an unforgettable one.

Let’s also break down which wines pair best with each element of the tower.

LOBSTER

As one of the most robust, decadent seafood varieties, lobster calls for a wine that penetrates through its richness without overtaking its distinct flavor. A few noteworthy companions would be a Chardonnay, White Burgundy or Sparkling Rosé.

CRAB

The full-bodied sweetness of crab pairs extremely well with a buttery Chardonnay. Also consider a Pinot Gris or a slightly dry Riesling - which also exhibits fruity flavors that pair quite nicely.

SHRIMP

With such a distinguished flavor, shrimp calls for a light companion in wine to enlighten the taste. Try a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.
