Our personal food recommendations for Pinot Grigio
Italian Pinot Grigio pairs up best with light dishes such as Clams, Fish, Prosciutto, Sushi, Salad, Lemon Chicken, and Antipasto. Italian Pinot Grigio is a dry white wine with high acidity and mellow flavours of pear, citrus and mineral.
Due to its subtle flavours of peach and pear, along with its minerality, Pinot Grigio loves Seafood Pasta of all types. The mellow flavours of the wine won’t interfere with the tender bits of seafood in the pasta, nor the sauce the pasta is tossed in. The minerality of the wine also complements the sea-breeze flavours of the seafood found within.
Pinot Grigio is a neutral white wine that gets along great with a mixed tossed salad as the wine won’t interfere with all the spring and summer flavours of a fresh salad. High in acidity, Pinot Grigio will make all the individual salad ingredients stand out, so you’ll be able to differentiate the romaine lettuce flavours from any spinach or arugula found within. Pinot Grigio will also make any cheese, egg, chicken or tuna you toss in taste extra delicious, which is important as those ingredients are costing you some coin.
