That's what the wine needs: strength and intensity are in demand here, as well as a not too dominated fruitiness and some acidity, in turn bringing freshness and vivacity into the combination. The wine may safely be a bit more substantial (read: a little higher in the alcohol content, possibly decent wood removal), in order to survive alongside the powerful appetizer.
2013 Grauburgunder Selection Rheinhessen, Essen devil's path
- with beguiling aromas of quince and honey, spicy pear, very dense and complex with lots of juice and structure, slightly smoky notes of wood removal and delicate echoes of roasted nuts. The powerful and vital nature of the wine perfectly surrounds the Wildterrine with all its gifts.
