What wine would go well Chicken Paprikash? I'm struggling with this one. Thanks for any suggestions!

    I like the wine suggestions - having a bottle myself tonight with George Lang's version of REAL Hungarian Chicken Paprikash. As for the other postings.... garlic?.... mushrooms????? really???

      I also like carswell's Oremus suggestion

        Chardonnay... hits the garlic and cream notes particularly well.

          Garnacha from Navarra/Grenache.

            Amen. Calls for a fruity red.

            Merlot would work too IMO.

            Oremus's Tokaji (a dry, winey 100% Furmint) or a dry Alsatian Pinot Gris for a white.

            The Cabernet Franc's an interesting suggestion for a red. Along the same lines, a supple Kekfrankos from Hungary (or its Austrian counterpart Blaufrankisch).

              Funny you should ask. My mom just came to visit this weekend for a Hungarian food lesson extravaganza. One night was chicken paprikas.

              I am not sure if it would be textbook appropriate, but we served a cabernet franc that was outstanding with the dish. It seemed to compliment the mushrooms in the sauce perfectly.

                Thanks for the great suggestion! I had a local (VA) cabernet franc that worked really well.
