Pairs well with
- A soft, classic Zweigelt with velvety tannins complements this dish beautifully and also embraces the spice of the accompanying kimchi.
- The sweet extract & concentration of a reserve level (or Smaragd) Grüner Veltliner combine beautifully with both the spicy & nutty components of the marinade.
- The acidity of a Riesling Reserve (or Smaragd) brings freshness & backbone to the dish, while the fruit and extract provide a charming contrast to sesame and even to the kimchi, with the wine’s texture and complexity.
