Wine note: The green herbs and tangy citrus in the chimichurri here need a bright, herbal white: sauvignon blanc. Discover the Clayhouse label out of California's powerhouse Central Coast. Their 2008 Sauv Blanc ($15) is racy with lime, green apple, crisp stone fruit, and green herbs, with enough body to stand up to the meaty fish. —Sara Schneider
