Wine with Chicken Paprikash?

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

  1. 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.

      1. 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).

            Amen. Calls for a fruity red.

            Merlot would work too IMO.

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