Pairing notes: The fresh mango compliments the Ferrington Gewürztraminer's tropical aromas while the spicy dressing contrasts in a good way with the flavors on the palate.
Serena's tip: Make sure to dice the mango into a small dice. If you are short on time, grab a rotisserie chicken from the store and some washed salad and it becomes a quick and easy dinner.
