The wine needed to be bold to hold up against the strong flavors so I opted for a local white wine, a 2011 Kinkead Ridge Viognier - Roussanne. There were wonderful aromas of spring blossoms and dried apricots. The full body in the wine held up great against the fatty fish and the acid cleansed just enough of the palate to make one want to repeat the process over and over. A lighter bodied white wine would have had some trouble here, but this wine made some beautiful music with the fish.
