Pairing Please - Tuna
What wine would you pair with a black pepper crusted tuna steak with wasabi-ginger dipping sauce?
The wasabi kills off any red wine. My taste would go to riesling, and something with a noticeable off-dry quality to handle the wasabi. It doesn't have to be expensive (Dr.Loosen L for $10) or
a QMP level wine from a good German producer. (I like Spatlese level but I don't know your budget.)
Sake would be nice, a junmai or junmai ginjo. (In a week or so you may find fresh sake--nama--and that would work.)
Thank you so much for the suggestions. I was originally thinking Gewurztraminer, but I hadn't thought of Gruner or Pinot Gris. I will try one of those. Sorry, but not so much a sake fan.
I'd go with a fruit-forward domestic (US) Sauvignon Blanc, like the Groth Napa SB.
