This is just a gorgeous recipe that screams summer, in a pitch perfect voice. It's a dish not for a crowd, but for a few, slow, calm, and as part of a hedonistic evening. The flavors here are bright and pure, and really call for a white wine that is both rich and subtle. It's time to break out your best Gruner Veltliner with this dish, preferably one with enough age on it to have gained a bit of creaminess of texture. If that's not your speed Chablis would also be in order, and again one with a bit of age would be wonderful here but if your just going to grab a bottle from the store shelf to pair with this tonight I'd opt for a creamy cool climate Chardonnay, perhaps from South Africa or New Zealand.
