Creme Fraiche Salmon Dip

This Salmon Dip is perfect for pairing with both varieties of Chardonnay – Because of its richness, and the creamy creme fraiche and cream cheese, it’s a match for that Oaky & Buttery Chardonnay  – Both are creamy and totally decadent. But, this dip also makes a great match for that Fruity & Crisp Chardonnay because of its citrus notes – This Chardonnay’s bright lemon flavor and hint of acidity balances out the Salmon Dip nicely. I actually preferred the Fruity & Crisp Chardonnay as a pairing – The contrast of flavors was perfectly balanced and made me want to sip and sip and eat and eat!

Wine Pairings for Salmon:

  • Gewürztraminer has just a hint of sweetness to it and a good body that will stand this rich salmon dip.
  • A light Pinot Noir or young Beaujolais would also work well here – With a bit of acidity and a hint of earthiness, they make a great match for salmon.

  1. That dip looks like a good pairing for any wine! I like the idea of this Chardonnay duo for a get together so everyone can compare and contrast the two chardonnay profiles!
