Creamy Chanterelle Mushrooms
Eierschwammerl à la Creme

Chanterelles are known in Austria as Eierschwammel. During the mushroom season they are often enjoyed as a starter, and this can influence the choice of wine to go with them.

Pairs well with:

  • Mature Chardonnay, soft and supple, that is made for this dish. The cream sauce harmonises with a creamy, textured wine style, that complements the fat consistency of the sauce with its structure.
  • An alternative might be a mature and opulent Grüner Veltliner with loads of richness, that is so easy to find in Austria, as well as Pinot Blanc.
  • Red wine is more challenging. A harmonious Sankt Laurent or a Pinot Noir with soft, silky tannins are recommended, yet it is important to select a wine of premium quality.
