The blossoming popularity of avocados (paired with wine)

The blossoming popularity of avocados (paired with wine)

Avocado: Ripe and Ready
Wine: Light and high in acidity
Pair them together and enjoy the deliciousness they exude
The avocado is a very versatile fruit that is enjoyed in many forms, many dishes, and many ways. One way it is highly enjoyed is alongside a glass of wine. It is true that avocados do not have an overwhelming taste, however their subtle yet succulent flavor can be enhanced with the right wine. Given the fact that they have a rich creamy texture, they need a crisp wine that will cut through it and cleanse the palate.
What we suggest you do the next time you have an avocado is pouring yourself a glass of wine containing the following characteristics:
- Light-bodied
- High acidity
- Sweet
- Fruity or floral aromas
Here are some avocado-based dishes that are beautifully complemented with Lebanese wines:
- Smoked salmon and avocado/ Salmon tartar with avocado & Chardonnay
This dry white wine with its high-acid profile and citrusy floral aromas perfectly cuts through the texture of the dish to deliver the most perfect match of food and drink! Be sure to pop open a bottle of Chardonnay the next time you prepare this dish.
