2014 Pinot Blanc Paired with Grilled Oysters

06_87706_F

Rich and Intense, we are thrilled with the structure of this vintage of Pinot Blanc. Bright citrus fruit and aromas of kiwi and flint fill the palate. The hint of grapefruit zest on the finish has become a marker of our Pinot Blanc, and the terroir of our Dundee Hills vineyard. Enjoy it chilled on a warm afternoon paired with shellfish.

Grilled Oysters

Ingredients:

  • Herb butter
  • Lemon wedges for serving
  • Hot sauce for serving

Preparation:

grilled-oysters-2Prepare a grill for medium-high heat. Scrub oysters. Place, cupped side down, on grate, cover grill, and grill until oysters begin to open, about 2 minutes. Transfer opened oysters to a platter (discard any that do not open). Let cool slightly, then use an oyster knife or screwdriver to pry shells open, keeping cupped side down and retaining as much liquid as possible. Using an oyster knife or paring knife, cut muscles connecting oysters to shells. Serve warm with butter, lemon wedges, and hot sauce.
