Match for Indian Candy Style Smoked Salmon?

Sam Salmon | Dec 26, 2011 10:17 PM

Of late I've been eating Pinto Blanc or Pinot Gris w Chinook Lox and the wines I've tried-all fermented in stainless-have matched reasonably well.

Now someone has gifted me a pound of 'Indian Candy' styled smoked Chinook-a hot smoked fish that's first marinated in both salt and sugar-sometime even Maple Syrup or Honey.

It's a delicious treat and something of BC specialty (if a tad rich) but my brain cramps when I think about matching it with wine.

A Hungarian Grüner Veltliner?

A light dry red of some description?

I'm thinking wine because in the past we've always washed this down with an IPA after fishing-all fine and good but a change would be welcome.

TIA.
