Californian Chardonnay, Riesling, and Pinot Grigio come together in perfect synergy in this lively off-dry white with tropical and stone fruit flavors, bright acidity, and a crisp balanced finish. Chardonnay provides texture, notes of green apple, pineapple, and citrus. Riesling offers lively acidity and floral aromas. Pinot Grigio rounds out the blend with juicy peach, apricot, and pear flavors.
About the region:
Located in the middle of California’s Central Valley, Lodi has a classic Mediterranean climate of warm days and cool nights and benefits from cool breezes blowing inland from the San Francisco Bay area - a climate that helps lend grapes a refreshing natural acidity. The mineral-rich, sandy soils and dry growing season allow growers to precisely manage vine growth through irrigation, producing more concentrated flavors.
Signature food pairing: Kimchi Mac & Cheese.
Most supermarkets carry this Korean condiment of spicy fermented cabbage and it adds a unique zip to this comfort food classic. Synergy's off-dry blend is the perfect complement to the creamy, rich flavors in this dish! The recipe and instructional pdf can be found here.
Additional food pairing suggestions:
Curried chicken kebabs, pad thai, chicken with grilled pineapple, buttered popcorn (goes great with casual cuisine!) Serve well chilled as an aperitif.
