The bridge builder! It is always challenging to find a white wine that can handle fish and aperitif. Often the aperitif classics are too sweet and fruity not to slay the low fish, or the opposite option is too bony and dry to stand alone as an entertainer. Gran Blanco is the intriguing compromise of the two. Dominated by pineapple and herbal notes, it knows how to pamper the oral cavity with plenty of fruit but comes off appropriately dry. A bombastically well-integrated acidity provides the right kick!
Pairings: Fish, aperitif, poultry
