What are the best wines to serve with crab legs?


Answer by  justanothersillygirl (44)

A good choice is a white wine but it has to have a good quality. The taste of the wine should be a little sparkly and fresh. Serve it cold.

Crab legs have a nice buttery flavor. If you serve them simply, with melted butter, serve with a non-oak aged chardonnay or a fruit sauvignon blanc. If you choose to use a cream sauce, a more full-bodied chardonnay may be a better choice. With our local Dungeness crab, we usually choose Sauvignon blanc.

Two great choices to pair with crab legs would be a nice white wine such as a dry Reisling or a Chardonnay.

Seafood in general, including crab legs, is always supposed to be served with white wines. Red wine goes with heavier foods, like steak and beef.


Answer by  serendip (408)

We drink either a chardonnay that has not been aged in oak or sauvignon blanc with crab. The subtle fruitiness of sauvignon blanc is a perfect accompaniment to the sweetness of the crab meat.


Answer by  Vivi55 (287)

If you like a drier wine, try a Sauvignon Blanc. If you want a wine to play up or match the sweetness of the crab, try a Riesling (Oregon or German are the best, imo). You could also try a lighter red wine, but in general tannins make crabs taste metallic.
