Seared Salmon With Mango Fantasy by Zhong Can Yi Jiu
Wine pairing notes
This smooth, round and savory Verduzzo is a perfect match for the seared salmon and its mango sauce. The notes of honey of the wine are enhanced by the sauce that contains honey as well and the sweet side of the wines is excellent with the mango and edamame kernels ratatouille that sides the fish.
