Food Pairings for Provenance Wines Pinot Gris
Appearance: The natural colour of Pinot Gris is there in all its beautiful glory - brilliant, glowing champagne-like straw yellow. Nose: Classic Pinot Gris fruit aromas of pear, honeysuckle and apple lift out of the glass, a subtle spearmint like aroma can also be detected. These primary fruit characters are complemented by a cashew like nutty lees underlay. Palate: When tasted the fruit aromas evident on the bouquet are repeated on the palate. These generous flavours are in turn complemented by a balanced thread of crunchy natural acid, ensuring both balance and zest. A creamy element (maturation on yeast lees) provides a perfect foil to the natural coarseness of rich Pinot Gris. A feature of this wine is its persistent flavour, built on the balancing components of fruit flavour, lees influence and minerally acid. Upfront and fresh in character, generous yet fine, a rich, balanced, varietally true, Pinot Gris. Food: White fleshed fish, mushroom risotto, roast pork and apple, asian styled spicy dishes - awesome with Tom Yum soup. An absolute taste sensation with fresh crayfish, fresh white bread and butter.
