Oh and what wine would I serve with this? Currently my style for rose has pale like my hydrangea blooms and one thing with a bit extra substance beckons. I’ve tasted a couple of Chardonnay-Pinot Grigio blends that make for a extra substantial meals companion than the poolside staple Pinot Grigio. Ecco Domani 2005 is properly balanced and affordable.

Transfer up a peg to Cline Cellars 2004 Pinot-Grigio-Chardonnay, nonetheless beneath $15.
