Spring rolls, and other fried dishes, such as fried dumplings for example, tend to need more acid than most off-dry sparkling wines can provide. Spring rolls are generally not very heavily seasoned and have a vegetable component that make them well suited for serving with Grüner Veltliner or Sauvignon Blanc, each of which has vibrant acidity paired with clear fruit and a little vegetal component of their own. Another alternative is a zesty, lemony Argentine Torrontes, whose flavors can offer great contrast to a spring roll’s.
