We love: Wild Horse Viognier (about $19)
Sweet crabmeat pairs well with an aromatic, fruity white. Choose a varietal with a relatively simple flavor profile—the complex, fragrant spices in a curry and the umami fish sauce will come to the fore. Viogniers are known to carry floral and stone fruit notes, which speak to the coconut and ripe mango.
Other can’t-miss matches: Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, dry Reisling
