Pinot Grigio Pairing Notes
Description: Pinot Grigio is the same grape as Pinot Gris, except it is made in a crisper, lighter style. This one has a floral aroma like orange blossom, and is refreshing and light on the palate, with fruit flavours of pear and green apple, a subtle mineral note, and just a touch of citrusy sweetness.
Pairing: The Pinot Grigio contrasts the smoky, spicy flavour of the shrimp with its fresh, fruity flavours that cleanse your mouth from the heat. Plus that orangey sweetness of the wine complements the orange zest in the marinade.
Wine Suggestion: Giovello Pinot Grigio (Veneto, Italy).
