Wine Pairing of the Week: Sauvignon Blanc & Garlic-Lemon Shrimp

Tangent Sauvignon Blanc and seafood are a match made in wine country heaven.

Tangent wine makes a cool climate Sauvignon Blanc with a lively acidity that makes it an obvious and natural pair with seafood, which is why I paired it with my favorite garlic-lemon shrimp.

Wine of the Week: Tangent Wine Sauvignon Blanc

This Sauvignon Blanc is silky, light and tastes of lime, green apple, and lemon zest. The  fresh flavor and crisp acidity of this wine makes it a great pair with mostly any seafood. The lemon zest flavor lightly complements the lemon in my garlic-shrimp recipe without causing a citrus overload.

Tangent Wines sources their grapes from Edna Valley, California which is under 6 miles to the Pacific Ocean. Their focus is creating crisp, refreshing white wines that pair well with a wide variety of foods.
