A Simple Steamed Fish with an Oregon Pinot Gris, by Jennifer Fiedler, A bed of shiitake mushrooms, red potatoes and cabbage makes a delicious complement

“Winewise, look for a white with a strong citrus component and herbal notes to match the dish. An aromatic Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand locked in nicely with the lemon flavors, but ultimately was too overpowering for the food. A Chardonnay from California was fine enough but a Pinot Gris from Oregon proved to be the winning match. With the food, the wine got more complex, developing appealing spice and fresh herb flavors.”
