Martin Codax and a Burgan's Albarino and recently purchased($10) the Salneval at a local wine shop and was wanting to try a dry crispy white wine with this dish.
The Chicken Cacciatore was exquisite as was the wine.
Salneval is the second label of the Adega Condes de Albarei winery.
Located in the Val do Salnés sub-zone, Condes de Albarei is a cooperative of 400 members. Three styles of wine are produced (all 100% Albariño), including one aged in Galician oak. Wines are marketed under the Condes de Albarei and Salneval brands.bottling.
The wine has a nice light color with aromas of green apple and pear with little tropical fruit and floral. Some lemon and grapefruit with a little honey like sweetness in the mouth. Finish was dry, not real long, but surprising good with the Cacciatore. I think that may have been because Shirley's Cacciatore sauce is very light and in lieu of pasta , she uses 'no yolk' wide egg noodles.
The wine is a must have for seafood and pork, but I was very pleased with it's pairing with the Cacciatore, although the following evening I did open a nice Chianti with the left-overs.
The $10 price is also a great value and a best buy.
