This wine goes well with i.e. fresh dishes with fish, nice salads (I am thinking salad with vinaigrette). Or just with some nice bread! Wein und Brot - so lecker. We had it with the marinated salmon (X-mas left-overs) and even to the herring it was really good. I had made the French style country bread that my dear stepdaughter has on her blog: http://sleepingdogbakery.blogspot.com/2009/02/simple-country-bread.html
