The perfect balancing act

I paired the 2015 J Vineyards California Pinot Gris with corn gazpacho at a recent Sauce Magazine cooking class at Dierbergs. Nailed it! A blend of pinot gris grapes from four California regions, this juicy dry white’s melon, grapefruit and tropical notes were balanced with enough crisp acidity to make the gazpacho do a happy dance. 

$16. Dierbergs, various locations.
