A sign that the can is gaining popularity, even among wine producers, this ecological and practical variant contains more and more high-quality products. Evidence: Fram Wines Grenache Gris 2021, a South African orange wine, is a pure pleasure. Produced by Thanos Kreuger. This brewer worked for twelve years on the Boschendal manor before starting his own business called Fram. In a 250ml bottle, the color is a deep orange thanks to soaking in Grenache Griss skins for three weeks. The aromas of black tea, herbs and fruits are attractive. On the palate, a juicy attack is followed by a nice tannic structure that allows you to enjoy the wine on your own and at the table, once the fish are out of the lake.

Choosing the color of wine according to the color of the dish is not the most complicated way to create your pairings. But it works often! Rosé is therefore a good choice to accompany salmon, particularly this cuvée de Provence, Les Béatines Coteaux d’Aix en Provence rosé 2021. This combination of grenache, syrah, and cinsault has an almost oily texture in the mouth, a perfect marriage with fish meat. Its flavors of red fruits, watermelon, and delicate herbs are so classic, but it’s impossible to get tired of them. Certified organic, can be refrigerated all summer long.

The founder of Bonnie Dawn’s American estate, Randall Graham, sold his vineyard two years ago. Despite the great reputation of his wine, the profitability of his business was not ideal. The winemaker admits it frankly: “I’m an artist, not a wine seller. Graham no longer manages the finances, but he’s still in charge of winemaking and this Cigare Blanc cuvée is great. Always inspired by Rhone wine, Mr. Graham wanted to honor the white Châteauneuf-du-Pape.” Its coffee combines Grenache, Vermentino and Clairette Aromas of pineapple, lemon and basil blend with oak barrels. On the palate, it’s round, spicy and long. Marvel with rainbow trout cooked in the shape of a papillot.
