Shrimp & Corn Salad Paired with 2015 Pinot Gris Reserve

 

Summer is the perfect time for fresh, bright & light salads. This shrimp & corn salad pairs perfectly for our 2015 Pinot Gris Reserve.

“Vivid straw-yellow. Pungent citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of chamomile and succulent herbs. Fleshy and dry on the palate, offering bitter pear skin, Meyer lemon and peach pit flavors that unfurl slowly on the back half. Rich yet lively as well, delivering solid closing thrust and very good, floral-tinged persistence.” 90 points. Josh Raynolds, VInous, February 2018
