Choice of wine with cod

When it comes to pairing wines with cod, the choice can vary depending on the style of preparation of the dish and personal preferences. However, there are some classic and popular options that tend to complement the versatility of this fish well.

  • Albariño Wine: Originally from the Spanish region of Galicia, Albariño is a fresh and fruity white wine that is characterized by its citrus notes and refreshing acidity. This freshness makes it an excellent option to accompany steamed or grilled cod dishes or in lighter preparations such as cod pil pil.
  • Green Wine: Another white wine of Portuguese origin, Green Wine, is known for its lightness and freshness, with a slightly effervescent touch. Its balanced acidity and fruity notes make it ideal to accompany fresh cod dishes or in salads, enhancing the flavors of the fish without overpowering them.
  • Sauvignon Blanc: This white wine, originally from France but produced in many wine regions around the world, offers herbaceous, citrus and tropical notes. Its refreshing character and acidity make it compatible with various cod preparations, from the simplest to the most elaborate.
  • Chardonnay Wine: If you prefer a white wine with more body and structure, Chardonnay can be an excellent option. With its richness and notes of ripe fruit, vanilla and toast, Chardonnay pairs well with baked or gratin cod dishes, as well as with creamier preparations.
  • Light red wine: Although white wines are usually the most common choice to accompany cod, a light and fruity red wine such as a Pinot Noir or a Gamay can also be an interesting option, especially for cod dishes more intense in flavor like Biscayan cod.

In the end, the best way to find the perfect wine and cod pairing is to experiment with different options and discover which combination best highlights the flavors of the dish and your personal preferences.
