12 Jun Jewell Box: June 2019 – Seasonal Pairings by the Joseph Jewell Team
Wine brings people together and, when paired properly, creates an experience unlike any other. Recently, Adrian asked his team to select a wine from the current releases and create a dish that would bring wine, food, and people together. The results were somewhat surprising, very unique, and overall, wonderful reflections of the versatility of Joseph Jewell wines.
Below are the three pairings with the tasting notes and recipe for each pairing. We invite you to try them for yourself and tag us in your social posts with #JosephJewellPairing. You may also purchase these wines in packs of 3, 6 or 12 here.
Grilled Shrimp Spring Rolls
2018 Rosé of Pinot Noir, Ryan Vineyard, Humboldt County
This pairing, submitted by Dee, is a wonderful example of balance. The floral notes of the rosé are pronounced and balance the spice of the spring rolls. This is a perfect warm weather pairing for your favorite rosé fan.
2015 Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
This refreshingly savory pairing submitted by Lauren was a bit of a surprise as she paired her towering tuna tartare with our RRV pinot noir. We found that the savory elements of the dish highlight the fruit of the wine and make for a pairing you would not expect but is sure to wow guests.
Braised Thai Oxtail
2015 Pinot Noir, Bucher Vineyard, Russian River Valley
This dynamic pairing, submitted by Lily, highlights the beauty of a great wine paired with carefully selected meat. The earthy aromas that our Bucher Pinot Noir is known for are perfectly matched with the earthiness of grass-fed beef. The spices and caramelization of the dish highlight the deeper red fruit in the wine and make for a pairing that is unique and elegant.
