Why This Wine: This wine is bright and clear with a golden core. Aromas of oak, nuts and smoke make it a great match for baccala, as do the flavours on the palate of butter, pine nuts, macadamia nuts and tropical fruit. There's a nice, long finish with mango notes on the end.
Why This Wine: This dry, crisp, white wine has undertones of gooseberry and crisp apple fruits.The tart balanced acidity pairs this wine perfectly with the saltiness of baccala. I'm a believer in pairing food and wine regionally and the River Duero river flows from Rueda right into Portugal.
Why This Wine: This elegant "Superventian" has tantalizing tropical fruit aromas, delightful honeyed fruit on the palate, excellent structure and body. Not only is it lovely as a sipper, the body and citrus twist make it an excellent accompaniment to the baccala. It's a great go-to Italian dry white wine.
