Head-on Shrimp + 2013 Veracruz Verdejo at Sur Lie

Just in case you’re hankering for something to sink your taste buds into this week in ‪‎Portland, Maine, here’s a great pairing you might want to check out at Sur Lie, located at 11 Free St, Portland, ME 04101. These perfectly cooked head-on Shrimp with yellow curry, cilantro, basil, with flatbread (placed on the bottom to soak-up the curry) pairs well with the 2013 Veracruz Verdejo from Rueda, Spain. Both the curry shrimp  and the Verdejo have rich aromatic components and bright but balanced flavors and medium body. There’s also a nice minerality to the ’13 Veracuz Verdejo that compliments that shrimp particularly well. Enjoy!
