Chicken fajitas are flavor packed, fun and easy to prepare. Try these with a Grenache Blanc for something new
Savvy match: Chicken fajitas can pack a punch. With hints of plum, honeysuckle, pear, and baked bread along with mild tannins and medium acidity, Grenache Blanc will cut through the spiciness of the poblanos while accenting the spice combination of the cumin, oregano, and chili powder. Oak-aged Grenache Blanc, similar to Chardonnay, also possesses a creamy texture and complex stem structure, which will go nicely with fresh guacamole and cilantro.
Everyone loves chicken fajitas, or at least everyone should because they’re easy to make and delicious! I challenge anyone to have to eat just one fajita. It’s impossible because they are simply tasty, and eating with your hands is just plain fun. While simple and easy to prepare, fajitas have a great marriage of spices, flavors, textures, and temperatures. Chicken flavored with cumin and oregano, lightly cooked onion and poblano peppers, and spicy heat and crunch, add on some cold guacamole and salsa atop your warm, soft tortilla, garnish with fresh cilantro, and you have a mouth-watering culinary delight. Due to its close affiliation and similarities to traditional red Grenache, Grenache Blanc has a fuller body and depth of complexity than most of its California white wine counterparts. Grenache shares more similarities in structure and depth of flavor with full-bodied reds than with most crisp white wines like Sauvignon Blanc.
