This is a review based on a food pairing with the recipe in the link below....
Wine and Salad is kind of a tricky pairing to make. Salads normally have more than enough acidity for one palate to take. So finding a wine that will work with the acidity and the textures in a salad can be a balancing act. With this salad, I would go with Mount Nelson Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. The wine is from famed wine maker Lodovico Antinori, he set out to make a old world style Sauv Blanc from the high end fruit grown by the Kiwis. He succeeded in a big way. This wine can stand up to the meat, the sweetness of the pecan and the balsamic while giving you a grassy palette cleansing effect from the minerality and acidity of the wine. Big notes of citrus and gooseberry punch you at the front of the palate as this win is not afraid to be bold but then the delicateness of the mid palate and finish are really impressive. It's not cheap for a Sauv Blanc but it really is a stunner.
