|DIY Spring roll table|
Viura or Macabeo, is a white grape widely grown in the Rioja region of Spain. Here is an article by Jancis Robinson, (Author of The Oxford Companion to Wine and The World Atlas of Wine- both of which I just obtained!)
I can definitely see it being used for cooking instead of the usual sauvignon blanc. It might even add more flavors to the dish!
We were making Vietnamese style spring roll with roasted chicken wrapped around sugar cane, basil, lettuce, shredded carrot and glass noodle. Simple home made Vietnamese style dipping sauce with fish sauce (the key is the lemons!). Very yummy.
