The Perfect Pair: Sushi & Poke

  • Wulf's Fish
  • 2 min read

Introducing our new seriesThe Perfect Pair exploring wine and beer pairings for seafood dishes of all kinds.

A great dish becomes even better when you have just the right pairing to make the flavors sing. Wulf’s has partnered withwine shops and breweries in the Boston area as pickup locations for our seafood. Here our partners give ideas and inspiration for what to drink with fish-focused meals.

 

Their recommendations for a kampachi pokewould also be delightful with sushi or sashimi, black sea bass crudo, or some dim sum-style shrimp dumplings.

 

MAYHEW WINE SHOP

Les Pouches Saumur Chenin Blanc or Ameztoi Rubentis Rosé Saumur

Chenin Blanc has minerality that will dazzle a sushi dish. Ameztoi Rubentis Rosé’s pleasant acidity will leave your mouth watering.

 

BENT WATER BREWING COMPANY

Endless Rays or Premium Lager

Endless Rays’s lemon acidity highlights the flavor of meaty fish like tuna. Light-bodied Premium Lager pairs well with rich fish and salty condiments.

 

BEACON HILL WINE AND GOURMET

Chiaretto Rosé or Hakushika Junmai Ginjo Sake

Chiaretto Rosé — this Italian rosé’s light delicate fruit is beautiful with sushi and poke bowls. Hakushika Junmai Ginjo Sake is the classic choice for sushi: light, dry with a hint of fruit — always served chilled.

 

CASTLE ISLAND BREWING CO.

Hi-Def Double IPA

Hi-Def’s seven-hop blend conveys intense tropical flavors and aromas, including pineapple, mango, and papaya — they mesh beautifully with either sushi or poke.

 

MAGNOLIA WINE COMPANY

Champagne (France), Cava (Spain) or Prosecco (Italy)

A refreshing, lean, clean sparkling wine would seem most appropriate. French Champagne would be my first choice but Cava or Prosecco would work too.

 

DISTRACTION BREWING CO.

Daily Distraction or Hoppily Distracted

Bright and citrusy Daily Distraction will play perfectly with the clean, crisp flavor of the kampachi. Hoppily Distracted’s tropical fruit flavors will enhance those flavors too.

 

Sushi & Poke is the second in a series of six pairing ideas. Coming next week, get recommendations for Spicy & Bold.
