This Anne Amis Pinot Gris has been one of my favorites after tasting it at the Washington DC Wine Expo last year. This time I enjoyed it with warm avocado halves stuffed with sautéed endive and parsley, garnished with pink grapefruit. An excellent pairing that highlighted the flavor profile of the wine while the acidity matched the richness of the whole avocado.
