Flavor Profile Well-balanced sweet and tart elements; hints of tropical fruit flavors.

The Gala apple offers a wonderful balance of tart and sweet flavors that help it stand up to a range of different flavorings. It pairs well with bold, distinctive flavors such as curry powder, fresh ginger, herbs (particularly tarragon, basil, and chives). In general, savory flavors complement the Gala best; sweeter ingredients can overwhelm the apple's own moderate sweetness.

This is a wine-friendly apple, making it a good choice for recipes that will be served as an appetizer or main course accompanied by wine. It pairs particularly well with Riesling, Chianti, Merlot and Pinot Noir wines.
