The rather oily nature of sardines (baby pilchards) requires wines with good acidity and enough oomph to handle their rather assertive flavours. The Spanish and Portuguese love sardines and the wines of their western shores, sherry and albariño, can be relied upon to work well. Rosés, particularly those of robust, Mediterranean proportion, are always a good bet too.
