Avocado

Jukes Wine And Food Avocado

If the avocado is undressed, you need light, unoaked whites, in particular Loire Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadet or fresh, cheap, clean Italians. If dressed with vinaigrette or with Marie Rose sauce (in a prawn cocktail), richer Sauvignon Blanc (NZ and the Cape), Pinot Gris (smart Italians and New Zealand) or Australian Verdelho and Riesling are spot on, as are young, white Rhônes or Languedocs, like Picpoul de Pinet, and Alsatian Pinot Blanc. Guacamole, depending on its chilli heat, needs cool, citrusy, dry whites to douse the palate and cut through the gloopy green mush.
