Wine Pairings for Tempura Battered Asparagus

WINE PAIRINGS FOR TEMPURA BATTERED ASPARAGUS

as recommended by Karen Bonarrigo

  • Asparagus is traditionally classified as one of the most difficult vegetables to pair with wine due to its extreme vegetal components
  • Asparagus in the springtime cannot be beat in terms of freshness and tenderness
  • White asparagus has more mellow flavors compared to its green asparagus relative
  • A tempura batter preparation for asparagus adds weight and texture
  • Soy sherry dipping sauce adds saltiness and sweetness to balance the umami flavors of the asparagus
  • These complex flavor additions allow for greater flexibility regarding wine pairings
  • Stick to wines with no tannins or oak, and instead opt for clean and crisp whites and roses – perfect for springtime tables
  • Recommended wines:
