For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case chosen by Jeffrey Wooddy, manager of Rochambeau Wines & Liquors in Dobbs Ferry..
2011 Teutonic Wine Co. Pinot Gris ‘Stoneridge Vineyard’: This light, crisp wine is built like a dry Mosel Kabinett; fresh twinkle of acidity and notes of pear and apple. Region: Willamette Valley, Oregon. Price: $22.99. Goes with: Good Pinot Gris goes with everything, but pairs best with foods with garlic and spice. Why I chose it: You can’t spend all winter tucked away in the dark drinking red wine and this wine tastes like bottled sunshine, so why not?
This is bottle 7 in our series.
