Pairing with sushi can be tricky––wasabi and ginger?––but fragrant whites are the secret
The wine: Grüner Veltliner
Pairing hint: With sweet crab, the citrus in “Grüner” (a new immigrant Austrian grape) turns to gorgeous lime, and all of its aromatics make a showing.
Our pick: Chehalem 2009 Grüner Veltliner (Ribbon Ridge; $19). Juicy apple carries lemon, grapefruit, and herbs under a layer of haunting jasmine.
