This traditional Spanish tapa pairs nicely with California white wine
Savvy match: This smoky Spanish dish, Gambas al ajillo, screams out, begging for a bright, crisp California white wine. We love this with a Chenin Blanc. The wine is lighter with a high acidity that helps cut through the dish’s richness. The bright citrus flavors also balance out the smoked paprika and garlic spice.
Gambas al ajillo is a traditional Spanish tapa of sautéed shrimp with garlic and pimenton de La Vera Spanish smoked paprika. Simple, quick, and delicious; a perfect easy appetizer with wine for any occasion. Traditionally served with fino sherry, any crisp white wine or even rosé will pair nicely. Make sure you have some great music and your dancing shoes because this dish will transport you to Spain and have you wanting to Flamenco all night long!
