What wine works with crawfish etouffee?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Tough question: What wine would you serve with crawfish etouffee? If you are not familiar with the dish, follow my sig links.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Possibly a Gewürztraminer, maybe a Viognier.

Both good choices. Also think about an Off-dry Riesling as I think that would work beautifully. If you don't care for the sweeter whites, you could try a Sauvingon Blanc or white blend like Conundrum. That is an actual offering from a winery in Napa, but I have to apologize because the name of the winery is escaping me right now.

Say what you will about my choices but I prefer a good Bordeaux or Cab and maybe even a very good beer. Maybe in the ale or stout realm.;)

Without question, a Viogner...

Something such as the one from Maryhill Winery in WA:

IZO WINE - Maryhill Viognier 2006

:oThat would be Caymus Conundrum, and that would definitely be a tasty combination for Crawfish Etouffee. Now you're making me hungry, and I just had lunch! :lips:

Thanks ChefJune. Caymus, that's the one I couldn't remember. If you like Conundrum, you should try Symphony from Michael David winery in Lodi, CA. There's also an offering from Van der Heyden Winery in Napa. It's just a white table wine and is simply incredible! It might be the overall best tasting white blend I've ever had and it would also work beautifully with Etouffee.

well., while we're recommending tasty wines for Etouffee, I'd like to put in a plug for Vision Cellars' White Table Wine. It's a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris, so there's no official name for it other than WTW... but WOW! is it terrific! :bounce:
