Sushi tonight. Spicy tuna rolls, yellow tail, octopus, maybe one of the "pretend" sushi rolls with tempura shrimp. Hopefully some red clam. Any wine recommendations? I could go white or red. Any input would be appreciated.
Greco di Tufo..traditional style by Terredora, Benito Ferrara, Macchialupa, Montesolae, Vini Nobilis, Antonio Caggiano
Bubbly like blanc de blancs Champagne, Crémant de Bourgogne or one of their New World analogues.
Fairly neutral flavoured, minerally, high-acid white with a hint of residual sugar like an off-dry Vouvray (Chenin Blanc). Lighter styled Gruner Veltliner can also be quite nice.
Spritzy Vinho Verde (don't laugh!).
The usual picks would be what carswell suggessted plus pinot gris, traminer and riesling. For red, low/traditional alcohol (12.5%) pinot noir that's has more fruit rather than minerality/earth tones.
But really, drink whatever you like and have fun, there are no "rules".
