Cream of Asparagus Soup

Cream of asparagus soup is one of the most popular asparagus dishes. Although wine is not often recommended with soups, it can definitely bring out some harmonious expressions with all kinds of asparagus- based menus.  A medium-bodied Grüner Veltliner (higher Kabinett or Federspiel levels), Weißburgunder or Zierfandler are ideal examples. Also robust-bodied Müller-Thurgau can make a charming partner as well. It is important to note that the wines should not be too heavy.
