I recently tried both the Pinot Grigio and the Shiraz from FishEye Winery. I found both to be easy drinking, and would make excellent options for serving at a dinner party or event. You see, FishEye offers their wines in a variety of convenient sizes. Both the Shiraz and Pinot Grigio are available in 750 ml, 1.5L and 3L sizes. The 3 liter boxes would be perfect for parties.
The Pinot Grigio had a fresh tropical fruit flavor, and was medium dry. A great summer wine, that would go well with a wide array of foods, or refreshing on it’s own. It’s flavor will not overpower or clash with more delicate fish, poultry or vegetable dishes. It would also pair well with most Asian cuisine.
FishEye Shiraz is also a versatile wine. It has a little spice on the nose, that remains through drinking. The wine tastes of berries, most notably blackberry. It is an easy drinker, and will appeal to a wide array of people, so as I have suggested above, will make an excellent choice when serving a group of people. I had a chicken cutlet with tomato sauce while drinking this and they made from a great combo. I would say this would go quite well with Mexican food, Italian, and BBQ,just to start.
Both wines are very reasonably priced, so no need to make the party BYOB 🙂
