Beet Salad and Wine?

Beet salad is a great summertime treat.  The beautiful red/pink hue of beets lend themselves to a stunning table display and the delicious sweet crunch of the vegetable itself  is light and heavenly on a hot day.  However, beets are tricky to pair with wine because they are quite sweet and usually adorned with vinegar.  Although not a food that is commonly paired with wine I might suggest a fruitier Sauvignon Blanc or Rosé to pick up the beet's sweeter undertones.  Thoughts?
