Pinot Gris From Tinhorn Creek Vineyards
The 2006 Tinhorn Creek Pinot Gris is a superb wine. Quoting Tinhorn Creek:
"If this wine were human, it would be the life of the party. (Even if it meant hanging a spoon from its nose). It would invite friends to gather for potluck dinners - and it would make its famous fruit salad. It would cherish alone - time in front of the fire, as well. It would read cookbooks from cover to cover. This wine isn't human. but you are. So enjoy it with whitefish, shellfish, sushi, or - come to think of it - anything. (Then again, feel free to enjoy it with nothing at all)"
Tinhorn Creek is located just south of Oliver BC, Canada. The winery produces some fantastic wines and their Pinot Gris is one of them. The wine has a symphony of citrus fruits intermingled with peach and apple lingering on the palate.
Pinot Gris is a white wine, but the grape itself is dark bluish and dates back to the middle ages in the Burgundy region. The wine can be enjoyed on it’s own, with a variety of seafood or with some well aged cheeses.
Further I would use with pasta accompanied by a cream or pesto sauce. Try my Pesto recipe or my Cilantro Pesto, just toss the past in it, it’s great. I would stay away from tomato sauces since the Pinot Gris grape is on the acid side to start with.
