Howdy, wine drinker.
I’m Jacob from I Want You to Drink More Wine.
Today, I’ll be sharing an honest wine review and suggesting a pairing that complements this wine perfectly.
Today we’ve got a nice summer dish.
A fish, white wine pairing.
I’m excited about it because the flavors are going to come together and just be amazing.
That’s all I can say.
Let’s go ahead and check out this wine.
Pikes Hills & Valleys Riesling 2016
We’ve got a 2016 Pikes Clare Valley Hills & Valleys Riesling.
Did I mentioned 2016, this is going to be out of South Australia, one of my favorite regions.
Pretty much all of them are my favorite.
But I think this high acidity Riesling is going to go nicely with our fish pairing we have today.
Let’s see what this alcohol level is going to be.
Can’t find it, where is it?
Probably right in front of my face.
Yep, 11% alcohol, shouldn’t be too bad.
Let’s check this pairing out though.
Snapper with Charred Tomatillos and Pepper Salsa
This pairing is nice and complex.
I don’t know if you can see it, there’s a little oil on there.
We’ve got snapper with charred tomatillos, which are like the little green husk Mexican tomatoes, I guess.
And then the salsa has red pepper, yellow pepper, jalapeno, and we’ve got some cilantro in there.
Oh, the smell of it, it’s really amazing.
And what we did is we baked this fish for about 15 minutes, the snapper, with a little salt, pepper, and butter.
Let me give this thing a bite, it looks so good.
Now be careful, depending on what you get, this had skin on it, so I don’t want to get skin.
Mmm, I did it in reverse today, that was right in front of my face so I had to take a bite.
But we’re ready to roll.
Oh, perfect, high acidity, goes with the flavors.
Nice, light alcohol so it doesn’t tackle your throat.
But the pairing’s nice, refreshing.
If you’re a fish lover, try this snapper with charred tomatillos and pepper salsa.
Go ahead, get that recipe right up there.
And if you’re going to try this Pikes Hills & Valleys Riesling 2016 out of Clare Valley, Australia.

Let’s see, there’s plenty of buying options.
