Food Pairing: Sauvignon Blanc with BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches topped with Cilantro-Lime Slaw

We were trying to come up with a good pairing for our pulled pork sandwiches. The challenge was the cilantro-lime cole slaw, which lends to some very fresh forward flavors. We felt the richness and sweetness of the pulled pork will balance those bright green flavors.

To compliment the food, we decided on a Sauvignon Blanc. The brightness and acidity complimented the lime and cut the richness of the pork, while the grassiness (found in many Sauvignon Blancs) married well with the cilantro. We were drinking our very own Sauvignon Blanc, but we feel most others would work well. This one by Cupcake Vineyards would work very well! Give it a try; share with friends!
