Pacific Blue Marlin Paired With 2009 The Four Graces Pinot Blanc Dundee Hills is Brian’s Featured Pairing of the Week!
Weekly Wine Notes From Brian Kemmerle
Bentley’s Wine Steward, Brian Kemmerle regularly offers his insight and experience to help select the perfect wine to accompany Chef Derek Ridgway’s dishes. Here is Brian’s recommended food and wine pairing for this week!
This week’s featured pairing takes advantage of a recent seafood acquisition. The chef purchased some Pacific Blue Marlin and is serving it with green chili polenta, corn relish and sautéed organic rainbow chard.
For the pairing I wanted a white wine with some richness and riper fruit to match up with the sweetness of the corn and the mild heat of the green chili. I picked the newly released 2009 The Four Graces Pinot Blanc Dundee Hills.
The wine has nice Asian pear and floral aromas with a full body and a lingering tropical fruit and macadamia nut finish. Cheers!
