Alsatian Gewurztraminer Wine and Nachos
(Attenschwiller, Alsace, France)
I know this is probably blasphemous to some people, but the other day I was served a lovely Gewurztraminer from Alsace (Rolly Gassman 1987) as an "aperitif" (before dinner drink).
And there were some nacho flavored tortilla chips on the table which is no surprise because most everyone in Alsace serves some snack foods with the before dinner drink.
I wasn't even thinking about it and I took a sip of wine and grabbed a chip.
Now this was a really nice Gewurztraminer so it didn't need anything to accompany it.
It could stand on it's own, but I'm telling you that the combo of nacho flavoring with this Gewurztraminer was REALLY nice!
I suppose this may not be for everyone but I'd be curious to see if anyone else likes this food and wine combination.
