Weekend Wine and Food Pairing- Grüner Veltliner and Guacamole

Guacamole is one of my favorite foods.  I have developed a killer recipe I make at home and also order it at all of my favorite Mexican food spots.  Finding a wine that pairs well with guacamole can sometimes be a challenge.  I often find myself reaching for a Mexican beer instead.  That all changed this past weekend when I had a wine and guacamole pairing revelation…Grüner Veltliner!

Grüner and guacamole was pretty much made for each other.  The lively acidity of the Grüner cuts through the fat in the avocados and the citrus and apple flavors work in perfect harmony with the lime, onions, and cilantro in the guacamole.  One Grüner I suggest that would pair perfectly is R&A Pfaffl Haidviertel Grüner Veltliner (review here http://wp.me/p1vdhr-Aq).  If you love guacamole and wine, give this pairing a try.  You won’t be reaching for a Mexican beer instead of wine any longer!
