Our 2021 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir was featured in Mashed as one of “The Best Wines To Pair With Salmon In 2023″
“The lightness of sushi makes it a perfect pairing for many white wines, and while you can go that route, it’s a little predictable. Sometimes it’s a good idea to buck trends and try something new. That’s why we suggest picking up a bottle of pinot noir with your next sushi order. Pinot noir is indeed a red wine, but because it has a higher acidity and low tannins, it can cut through the oiliness of salmon without totally overshadowing it.
Elk Cove pinot noir from the Willamette Valley in Oregon is a wine with silky integrated tannins and supple red fruit. The mix of soils in the region, including sandstone and basalt, according to Forbes, gives the wine a mineral-driven finish that keeps it feeling focused on the palate. This wine will pair with many styles of salmon, but we love it with sushi for an out-of-the-box pairing.” – Lauren Johnson, Freelance Writer
We love Pinot Noir with Salmon, so it’s an honor to be included on this great list of wine and salmon pairings. Cheers!
