It is strawberry time. What is your favorite wine to pair with strawberries?
I have been hooked on the strawberry / champagne combo ever since Richard Gere told Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman that champagne enhances the flavor of strawberries.
A wine shop suggested .Moscato DAsti (Sarraco). It was too sweet a match for the strawberries.
Bonny Doon 2003 Freisa Frizzante, a fizzy red wine from freisa grapes would be excellent with chocolate covered strawberries, but while it was fine,the strawberry flavor of the sparkling wine competed with the fresh strawberries.
At one time I liked Iron Horse Blanc de Noir, but they raised the prices and I just dont think it tastes the same anymore.
Any suggestions for the ultimate strawberry experience would be appreciated
